Warner Bros. has confirmed that they will be kicking off the ‘Mortal Kombat’ reboot simultaneously on HBO Max’s streaming service, just as they will with ‘Wonder Woman 1984’.
Most US theaters are expected to remain closed for most of 2021, making it impossible to predict the fate of several major releases that have been postponed until next year.
As such, Warner will be releasing ALL of its 2021 movies simultaneously.
This includes “The Suicide Squad”, “Matrix 4”, “Dune”, “The Many Saints of Newark”, “In a New York Neighborhood”, “Space Jam 2” and “Godzilla vs. Kong ‘.
Originally scheduled for January 2021, the restart has been postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.
The reboot is directed by Simon McQuoid and produced by James Wan.
Greg Russo is responsible for the script for the new version.
The cast includes Joe Taslim (Sub Zero), Ludi Lin (Liu kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Mehcad Brroks (Jax) Josh Lawson (Kano), Chin Han (Shang Tsung), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden), Sisi Stringer (Mileena) and Lewis Tan, still without a defined character.
The soundtrack will be provided by Benjamin Wallfisch (“It: Chapter 2”).
The new feature will be for over 18 years, with the promise of a lot of violence and death.
Released in 1995, the first adaptation of “Mortal Kombat” had a budget of $ 18 million and grossed $ 122.1 million at the global box office. The sequel, “Mortal Kombat – Annihilation,” cost $ 30 million, but only raised $ 51.3 million worldwide. Both have been slaughtered by critics.
