A new trailer for the Mortal Kombat movie is coming very soon. The film’s official Twitter account announced that a new trailer for the video game adaptation will arrive this Thursday, February 18, at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.
The film’s Twitter account released individual teasers for specific members of the cast, including Joe Taslim (Sub-Zero), Josh Lawson (Kano), Sisi Stringer (Mileena), Max Huang (Kung Lao), Lewis Tan (Cole Young), and Chin Han (Shang Tsung). While you wait for the trailer, you can check out a series of images.
Mortal Kombat will be released on April 16, both in theatres and on HBO Max. In fact, every Warner Bros. movie in 2021 will release in cinemas and on the streaming platform as part of the movie studio’s bold new strategy that it enacted due in part to the COVID-19 health crisis.
Mortal Kombat, and all other Warner Bros. movies, will be available to HBO Max subscribers for a period of one month before it’s removed and then made available on paid video-on-demand stores.
It’s been a long time coming for the Mortal Kombat film, as Warner Bros. originally planned to release the movie in January 2020.
The Mortal Kombat movie was produced by Aquaman director James Wan, and directed by Australian commercials director Simon McQuoid. The movie filmed in Adelaide, South Australia.
The first Mortal Kombat movie, released in 1995, was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who would go on to make the Resident Evil series. The movie made more than $120 million worldwide, but its 1997 sequel, Annihilation, was a disappointment by comparison with only $51 million. An internet video series called Mortal Kombat Legacy ran from 2011-2013.
