It has been 26 years since the first Mortal Kombat film was released in 1995, and it has been 24 years since the last Mortal Kombat film was released. Mortal Kombat 11 was released in 2019. The first tease of Mortal Kombat’s new film was back in January 2021. The new film does not have any connection to the 90’s games or films. It is a complete reboot of the series, much like what they did with the game series itself: In 2011, Mortal Kombat 9 was simply “Mortal Kombat” as it is a reboot of the series.
Not much as been known about the story, but the film is faithful to the source material, as many of the well-known characters are in the film, with an addition to the series. Cole Young is a MMA fighter that is down on his luck, and sees only pain. Today, Warner Bros. released the first Mortal Kombat (2021) trailer called “Red Band.”
Mortal Kombat is scheduled to be released on April 16, 2021 in theatres, and on HBO Max on the same day.
