Warner Bros. has just released the first look at its upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot, which is based on the popular video game series of the same name. It comes from first-time Australian director Simon McQuoid, who promises an unhealthy amount of blood and gore. And though it may not look like a masterpiece, it certainly feels like a fun time.

All the most iconic characters are in the film, including Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, and Mehcad Brooks as Jackson "Jax" Briggs. It's set to release April 16 via HBO Max.
