R-Rated Mortal Kombat Animated Movie Drops Brutal First Trailer

Warner Bros. Animation has shared the first trailer for its upcoming animated movie based on Mortal Kombat, and it looks good. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is a feature-length, R-rated effort that stars all your favourite fighters from the popular NetherRealm series, as they compete in a tournament that'll decide the fate of Earth.

Basically, it's one big excuse to show all these iconic characters bashing the absolute crap out of each other... and I'm okay with that. I mean, what do you want from a Mortal Kombat movie, if not brutal brawls and blood-soaked fatalities? Take a look at the debut trailer below, which shares a small taste of the action we can expect.


"Based on the worldwide hit game created by Ed Boon & John Tobias, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge spotlights the once-in-a-generation tournament between the champions of Outworld and Earthrealm - a competition that will ultimately determine the fate of Earth and all its citizens. Lord Raiden, protector of Earthrealm, must gather the greatest fighters of his realm to defend it from the evil Shang Tsung in the battle to end all battles - Mortal Kombat!"

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is set to release digitally and on Blu-Ray / DVD in Spring 2020 The movie is being directed by Ethan Spaulding, who previously helmed a couple of WB animations based on DC properties, including Batman: Assault on Arkham, and Justice League: Throne of Atlantis. Both were kind of dumb, but plenty of fun - which is exactly what I'm expecting from Scorpion's Revenge.

The cast also features a couple of familiar names, including Community's Joel McHale as Johnny Cage, and Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter as Sonya Blade. You'll also no doubt be glad to learn that NetherRealm is directly involved in the project, and a number of actors from the games will be reprising their roles. Patrick Seitz returns as the iconic Scorpion, while David B. Mitchell and Ike Amadi are back as Raiden and Jax Briggs respectively.

Scorpion's Revenge should be more than enough to keep Mortal Kombat fans happy while they wait for the live-action movie, which is expected to arrive next year. Last we heard, the big screen adaptation had started production late last year after assembling a properly incredible cast of actors.

Actor and martial artist Joe Taslim (The Raid), will be playing the antihero Sub-Zero. Ludi Lin (Power Rangers, Black Mirror) is Shaolin monk Liu Kang. Supergirl actor Mehcad Brooks has been cast as Jax, while Tadanobu Asano (Thor) is apparently in talks to play Raiden. All in all, it's a good time to be a Mortal Kombat fan.
