I must admit that I was never the Scorpion King’s biggest fan, although the first two films are easy to watch and do pass the time nicely. I wasn’t really all that bothered about Part 3 until I saw one of the following clips where two very hot ladies have a good old bust up. Granted the film doesn’t look perfect, but it looks like it just might be a lot of fun. Check out the clips and trailer after the press release which follows.
