When will the new Mortal Kombat movie come out? How to watch in the UK?
The Mortal Kombat 2021 movie is out this month, with the next MK movie release date fast approaching. On Friday, April 16, Hollywood’s final effort to bring Mortal Kombat to the silver screen will be released. The new Mortal Kombat movie starring Joe Taslim (The Raid), Jessica McNamee (The Meg), Hiroyuki Sanada (Westworld) and more and is directed by Simon McQuaid, with James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring, Aquaman) among the producers.
Under normal circumstances, the new Mortal Kombat movie would hit the big screen.
But now that the world is still in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, that will not be the case.
In the US, the Mortal Kombat 2021 movie will be available to stream on HBO Max.
Plans to watch and stream the new Mortal Kombat movie in the UK have not yet been announced.

Previous movies that hit HBO Max in the US have launched on various streaming platforms in other regions.
The recently released Snyder Cut of Justice League was available NOW to watch in the UK with a Cinema Pass.
Wonder Woman 1984 – which also launched on HBO Max in the US – was a video-on-demand rental through services such as Prime Video in the UK.
We’ll have to wait and see what the official streaming plans for Mortal Kombat in the UK are, but if we take a gamble, we’d expect the new MK movie to be a paid rental on platforms like Prime Video.
The new Mortal Kombat movie has big shoes for filming, as the 1995 movie starring Bridgette Wilson (Last Action Hero), Christopher Lambert (Highlander), and Robin Shou – best known for his role as Liu Kang – is arguably the best video game movie ever made.

The new Mortal Kombat movie will be released on Friday, April 16
If you watch movies like Jean-Claude Van Damme Street Fighter or Super Mario Bros, there might not be much competition, but that’s because those movies failed to tap into what made the source material appealing to legions of fans.
The 1995 Mortal Kombat movie didn’t make that same mistake – it felt like a faithful representation of what made Mortal Kombat such a big hit.
Early signs show that the new Mortal Kombat movie could recreate this magic, with some exciting trailers to be revealed leading up to the launch.
But we’ll have to wait and see next week if the new Mortal Kombat is added to the list of worthy video game adaptations or not.
Mortal Kombat 2021 will be released on Friday, April 16.
