While the Mortal Kombat movie’s original release date was in March of 2021, it appears that the upcoming Mortal Kombat film adaptation will now be released by Warner Bros. on January 15, 2021.
Hopefully this is a good sign for the film and one which should indicate it’s exactly what fans are hoping for. After all, the movie has thus far been teased as both an incredibly awesome and violent adaptation of the source material. We can only hope that it continues to live up to those expectations.

No plot details for the new movie, but the plot for the 1995 Mortal Kombat film reads:
“Three unknowing martial artists are summoned to a mysterious island to compete in a tournament whose outcome will decide the fate of the world. Based on the popular video game of the same name “Mortal Kombat” tells the story of an ancient tournament where the best of the best of different Realms fight each other.”
It’ll be exciting to see how this new interpretation will compare with the original Mortal Kombat film series. But given that this comes from a much different creative team, it could potentially be the perfect movie for fans of the games.
The new Mortal Kombat film’s cast includes Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Chin Han as Shang Tsun, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, stuntwoman Elissa Cadwell as Nitara, and Sisi Stringer as Mileena. Lewis Tan (Wu Assassins) is playing a currently unknown leading character.
The film will be produced by James Wan and Todd Garner. Larry Kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear, and Sean Robins are attached as executive producers. Simon McQuoid will be directing the Mortal Kombat film.
