MORTAL KOMBAT Reboot Gets Simultaneous Theatrical & HBO Max Release Date; First Poster Revealed

Amid rumors that Warner Bros. might be considering sending the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie to HBO Max, it's now been confirmed that the reboot will premiere on the streamer the same day it hits theaters.

Following last week's announcement that Warner Bros. intends to send its entire 2021 movie slate to HBO Max the same day they hit theaters, the studio has pushed the Mortal Kombat reboot back 3 months from January 15, 2021 to April 16, 2021.

Producer Todd Garner took to Twitter to confirm that simultaneous theatrical/HBO Max release, adding that we won't be seeing a trailer until the new year. We do have a first promo poster, however, featuring the official title treatment and a redesigned take on the video game's classic dragon logo.

WB has also moved the live-action Tom and Jerry movie up from March 5, 2021 to February 26, 20201, and removed Lisa Joy's sci-fi drama Reminiscence from its slate altogether. It was previously dated for April 16, 2021.

Mortal Kombat is set to star Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, and Mehcad Brooks as Jackson "Jax" Briggs. Lewis Tan's role has not been revealed, but there's a lot of speculation that he'll be playing Kung Lao.

The video game adaptation was directed by Simon McQuoid and produced by Aquaman helmer James Wan.
