Over the course of the 2 minute 30 seconds trailer, fans are treated to an exciting array of popular characters such as Liu Kang, Sonya Blade, Sub-Zero, Lord Raiden, and several more.

Focusing on the lore behind the famous Mortal Kombat tournament, the trailer provides several snippets of pulsating action, as it follows the story of the protagonist, Cole Young (played by Lewis Tan).

By the looks of it, director Simon McQuoid was certainly not lying when he spoke about providing fans with a gory, R-Rated version, as popular fatalities such as Kano's heart rip and Lui Kang's Fire Dragon, are brought to life in visceral fashion.

From Jax's arms getting ripped off to being blessed with shots of the formidable Goro and Mileena, the trailer serves as a perfect ode to the feel and temper of the original video game series.

However, what serves as the main highlight is the decision to pay homage to dialogues such as Scorpion's "Get Over Here" and the iconic "Finish Him."

Here are some of the reactions online, as excited fans took to Twitter to gush over the action-packed Mortal Kombat trailer:
