Mortal Kombat is an American martial arts fantasy film directed by Simon McQuoid (in his feature directorial debut) from a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham and a story by Oren Uziel and Russo. It is based on the video game franchise of the same name created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, serving as a reboot to the Mortal Kombat film series. The film stars Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Joe Taslim, and Hiroyuki Sanada.
Following the critical and commercial failure of the 1997 film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, a third Mortal Kombat film languished in development hell for a period of nearly two decades. In late 2010, Warner Bros. Pictures, which parent company, Warner Bros. Entertainment, acquired the franchise from Midway Games in 2009, began developing a new film, with Kevin Tancharoen serving as director from a script written by Uziel in the wake of their Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short film. James Wan was announced as a producer in August 2015 and McQuoid was hired as director in November 2016. Production took place at Adelaide Studios in Adelaide and at other locations in South Australia. Principal photography occurred from September to December 2019.
Mortal Kombat was theatrically released internationally on April 8, 2021, and scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema in the United States on April 23, 2021, simultaneously in theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service.
Joe Taslim is back in the Hollywood film Mortal Kombat. This action actor will play the character Sub-Zero, one of the original characters of the video game Mortal Kombat.
Like the previous Mortal Kombat films, the version starring Joe Taslim will focus on the eponymous tournament between the warriors of Earth and the evil forces of Outworld.
Based on the released video footage, it seems that this film will present the iconic movements of the game. You can also see that the victim in this film is exactly the same as the one in the game.
Besides Joe Taslim, there will also appear Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada), Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Raiden (Tadanobu Asano), Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee), Jax (Mehcad Brooks), and Kano (Josh Lawson).
There is also a new character as well as the main protagonist, namely Cole Young (Lewis Tan).
Even though it features original characters. However, the film, which is scheduled for release April 16, 2021, has several differences that are worth noting.
What are the differences and what are the facts? Let's check the next article.
No Johnny Cage Character
In the Mortal Kombat video footage, the Johnny Cage character who usually appears in franchise films does not appear. The absence of this character also makes Mortal Kombat fans wonder.
Although there is no Jhonny Cae, there is a Cole figure who plays a protagonist like Cage. However, this character is predicted to end up being a supporting character only.
Kano's Character Is So Good
Whereas in the previous film the character Kano was told as the main villain, in this film it was different.
Seen in the Mortal Kombat 2021 footage, Kano is seen as a hero. However, it is unclear whether Kano will be the hero throughout the film or not.
The Appearance of Terrible Reptiles
The reptile character in Mortal Kombat 2021 looks different from the previous appearance with the green ninja appearance.
In this latest film, reptiles look like terrible monsters. However, this creature still has the same characteristics as in the game.
These changes are of course common in a game adaptation to a film. Changes like this often make potential viewers even more impatient to watch this film.
