And by faithful, we mean complete with gore and violence, blood and battle—enough to make you relish every fatality
One of the most anticipated film remakes pre-pandemic is finally set for release, but in select theaters (or, at least, in countries where movie houses are open) and on streaming service HBO Max.
This 2021 version of “Mortal Kombat,” based on a recently released trailer, seems to be more promising than its predecessor. Apart from the magic of modern visual effects, there’s that all-too familiar brutality in the film that fans of the video game are only glad to see. Yes, it offers pure, wholesome, unadulterated violance—with the trailer adding familiar phrases like “Finish him” and “Get over here.”
Check out the trailer below (PS. Because of its US rating, the trailer is age-restricted).
“Mortal Kombat” will premier in select theaters and on HBO Max on April 16, 2021.
