The Warner Bros reboot of Mortal Kombat which is based on the game franchise has been rescheduled three months later than expected, on April 2021. Mortal kombat was to be released in January but will now be released in a slot previously held by Hugh Jackman’s sci-fi movie Reminiscence which has been scheduled for another time.
The changes though do not affect Warner Bros plans to release its 2021 movies or films in theaters and on HBO Max the same day, as the studio was saying from the start that its lineup was subject to changes. The strategy which also applied to movies such as The Matrix 4, Fine, and Wonder woman 1984 has earned Warner Bros massive backlash. Along, with filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, Dennis Villeneuve, and Judd Apatow also publicly against the decision.
The movie which is based on the popular video game franchise is directed by Simon McQuoid and starring movie stars Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mathcad Brooks, and Ludo lin. Also with Chin Han and Hiroyuki Sanada. The movie showing as Earth’s greatest champions are called to fight the enemies of the outer world in a tournament to save the planet.
