Mortal Kombat is just days from officially opening around the world -- but if you can't wait that long Warner Bros has you covered! Seven minutes from the much talked about opening scene has been released online. Beware of spoilers:

Bi-Han (Joe Taslim) leads a violent incursion into the "Hanzo Hasashi Compound" where the once and future Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada) and his family appear to live a relatively tranquil existence. The contemporary rivalry of the video games is transposed to feudal Japan, year 1617, where the ninja is away gathering water when he hears the screams of his dying family.

Hanzo returns to find his wife and child frozen together in a shroud of ice. He has his first taste of revenge when he defeats masked Lin Kuei warriors prowling the compound in a dynamic action sequence, leading to a face-to-face showdown with his arch-nemesis.

Although chronologically removed from the classic video game storyline: the characters engage with an air of authenticity, speaking Japanese and Chinese dialogue, respectively. Scorpion doesn't understand his enemy's words, but the intent sets up their future collision later in the movie.

The clip also reveals a dragon-shaped birthmark on Hanzo Hasashi's wrist. The birthmark conceit, invented for the movie, will tie Scorpion to the future plight of new character Cole Young (Lewis Tan), who becomes BI-Han's target in the future when he works for Shang Tsung (Chin Han).
