It Sounds Like We Can Forget About Watching MORTAL KOMBAT Reboot This January

Mortal Kombat was supposed to make its way into theaters on January 15, but it's time to say goodbye to that launch window, as Warner Bros. has silently decided to push it back to an undisclosed release date.

"Well, I thought by the casts’ social media you would’ve figured out we’re shooting a few more days," Producer Todd Garner told a fan on Twitter. "We’d always planned for it & thought we’d do it in March. The pandemic had other plans. We will not have a release date for the movie until theaters re-open."

Unfortunately, Warner Bros. won't reveal any new details about the production — including its teaser trailer — until after the COVID pandemic is over. Considering that it is showing little signs of letting up in Europe and the Americas, it may be a good while before we learn anything new about the highly anticipated movie.

Directed by Simon McQuoid, the reboot of the Mortal Kombat movie series will reportedly be grounded in reality, putting the spotlight on Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Liu Kang, and Kano's humble beginnings.

Interestingly enough, the movie will be scored by Benjamin Wallfisch (Blade Runner 2049, The Invisible Man).

It's probably worth remembering that the Mortal Kombat film is not the only video game movie that recently lost its release date, as both Minecraft and Tomb Raider 2 have been delayed indefinitely by Warner Bros.
