Video game movies have had a mostly bad reputation, with high hopes but ultimately leading to disappointment. Recently, the Resident Evil movie reboot has wrapped up production, looking to redeem the franchise from lackluster outings. Now, courtesy of EW, we have our first look at the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, which is set to release in cinemas and HBO Max on April 16.
Check out the recently released images from Warner Bros. Pictures below:
The film is directed by Simon McQuoid, with James Wan and Todd Garner as producers. Ludi Lin will star as Liu Kang, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, among others.
For the first time, Fatalities will make its way in the movie, and iconic ones at that, which will certainly be one of the highlights of the film for fans of the series.
