Mortal Kombat will make its way to big screens and HBO Max, but not as early as many fans would’ve hoped. Still, this latest attempt at a feature film adaptation of one of the most popular video games ever is just around the corner as it has been announced that the movie is now set for release on April 16th 2021.
Mortal Kombat moves from its original January 15th 2021 date, as Warner Bros. shuffles its upcoming film slate following the news earlier this month that all of the studio’s 2021 titles will premiere on HBO Max alongside their theatrical releases.
Simon McQuoid is directing the reboot, with James Wan producing. The cast includes Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Mehcad Brooks as Jackson “Jax” Briggs, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Sisi Stringer as Mileena, Elissa Cadwell as Nitara, Max Huant as Kung Lao and Lewis Tan in a still-undisclosed role.
