Mortal Kombat movie will be released April 16, 2021

The previously announced movie will be released in theaters on April 16. From that date, the can also be streamed immediately on streaming service HBO Max, although the service will not be available in Europe at that time.

The announcement of its release on April 16 means that the has been delayed by several months. Last year a release period of March 2021 was mentioned and at the end of last year that was brought forward to January 15th. The current postponement until April 16 seems to be caused by the corona pandemic. Producer Todd Garner said last month that the pandemic has had an impact on the schedule and that the film would only get a release date when the cinemas reopen.

It is a live action and can be regarded as a reboot; in 1995 and 1997 there were already two live Mortal Kombat films out. The new will be directed by Australian Simon McQuoid, produced by New Line Cinema and shot in studios in the southern Australian city of Adelaide. Australian landscapes will probably be part of the film. More will be known about the film next year, as Garner says a trailer will be released sometime in the new year .

The announcement of the new release date of the movie follows shortly after WarnerMedia announced that it will simultaneously release all of the films scheduled for 2021, in addition to the cinema release, on HBO Max. That also applies to Mortal Kombat. However, HBO Max is currently only available in the US. In the second half of 2021, the service will also come to Europe, but that will be at least a few months after the cinema release of Mortal Kombat.
