Mortal Kombat, the much-awaited live-action movie of the beloved video game franchise, is now going to be available for fans to see later than expected. The movie is a remake attempted after two decades of the two Mortal Kombat movies coming out.

While the first Mortal Kombat was received warmly by fans as well as the box office, the sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, failed to garner serious attention from either of those sources. The fact that a video game franchise that is defined as the pinnacle of violently brutal video games had two PG-13 movies didn’t really help their case at all.

Fans are hyped for Mortal Kombat because the trailer promises plenty of brutal violence and fatalities, which the previous movies lacked to a great extent. The decision to delay the movie release by one week came after Warner Bros announced that all their 2021 release will be premiering simultaneously on HBO Max.

The movies will stay on HBO Max for a premium subscription watching for a month, and then drop from the platform after a month, until they’re released in theaters on their respective release dates.

Mortal Kombat, which features actors such as Lewis Tan, Hiroyuki Sanada & Joe Taslim will release on April 23rd, 2021 on HBO Max. The trailer for Mortal Kombat, given down below, will let you know exactly what the fans are in store for.
