Earth’s greatest warriors battle enemies from the Outworld to save the planet from total destruction. May it be as cheesy as the 1995 movie.

Cue the music…


Warner Bros. has finally set a calendar date for the movie based on the iconic video game and they were nice enough to include some photos. This is one of the hybrid theater/HBOMax movies – no news on if they’ll do a later streaming release for the folks across the pond like they did for WW84. The official synopsis is not exactly descriptive, but we all have a pretty good idea of what this is going to be.

Mortal Kombat is a mysterious, intergalactic tournament of ancient martial arts. Shaolin Monk Liu Kang, from Earth, gets invited as a competitor. 

The cast includes Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Max Huang as Kung Lao, Elissa Cadwell as Nitara, and Sisi Stringer as Mileena. Lewis Tan is playing Cole Young, a new character.

Mortal Kombat arrives on HBOMax and in theaters on April 16th.
