Mortal Kombat movie pulled forward to January 2021

Scorpion vs Skeletor ain’t happening

According to the Hollywood newshounds at Deadline, Warner Bros. new cinematic adaptation of Mortal Kombat has been bumped up the schedule a few months, and will now arrive in theatres January 2021.

While there is no reason given for the schedule change – one of many that has been made on Warner Bros. cinematic calendar – this does mean that this new MK movie will no longer be going head-to-head with Sony’s Masters of the Universe movie, which is also scheduled for release on March 5.

The Mortal Kombat movie, which begins shooting in Australia in early 2020, has been drip-feeding its cast of characters in recent months. Already confirmed for the R-rated flick are Raiden, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Liu Kang, Kano, Sonya, Jax, Mileena and boss man Shang Tsung. Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema have celebrated the film’s varied cast of international actors and martial art experts.

Mortal Kombat is now scheduled to release in theatres January 15 2021.
