Fans have been waiting on the Mortal Kombat franchise’s long-awaited big-screen redemption for some time now. Unfortunately, they’re going to have to wait a while longer. According to producer Todd Garner, the upcoming film won’t have a release date or even a trailer until after theaters reopen.
You can check out what he had to say below.
“Well, I thought by the casts’ social media you would’ve figured out we’re shooting a few more days. We’d always planned for it & thought we’d do it in March. The pandemic had other plans. We won’t have a release date for the movie until movie theaters re-open. Same for trailer.”

That’s a bummer as the film had an original release date of January 2021. Two films based on the franchise were made in the 1990s. The first film was absolutely awful. The sequel was somehow worse. They seemed to be written by people who had never played the game. In 2011 Kevin Tancharoen gave fans hope with the release of Mortal Komba: Rebirth and the series hat followed it Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Tancharoen somehow grounded, at least to an extent, the completely ungrounded video game franchise. It still stands, in my opinion anyway, as the best live-action Mortal Kombat content.
While little is known about the project I’ve read nothing that makes me worry.
