For all the MORTAL KOMBAT newbies, here is a quick historical refresher: Inspired by Jean-Claude Van Damme, two game developers (Ed Boon and John Tobias) created MORTAL KOMBAT in 1992. Midway Games‘ MORTAL KOMBAT became a video game franchise that spawned 18 game sequel, 8 combinations of animation and live action films and tons of merchandise. The game is considered one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time with over 26 million games sold.

Because of the signature violence, blood and gore, MORTAL KOMBAT created a controversy among parents which lead to the creation of ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board), a video game rating system. The game is also known for its realistic digitized sprites and use of  palette swapping to create new characters.

Film producer Lawrence Kasanoff licensed MORTAL KOMBAT (1995), and made the first first successful video game movie adaptation. He also went on to produce the soundtrack which became the first one million platinum-selling album.

In 2009, Midway Games filed for bankruptcy,  which paved the path to Warner Bros. purchasing most of Midway’s assets. But it was in 2010 that the dagger was put  into the heart of Midway when a judge ordered the liquidation of the company. Warner Bros. acquired the MORTAL KOMBAT development team and rename them as NetherRealm Studios.

The new MORTAL KOMBAT is directed by Simon McQuoid and the film is based on a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham, and a story by Russo and Oren Uziel. The film is produced by James Wan.

MORTAL KOMBAT will be released at the same time in Theaters and for a 30-day period on HBO Max on April 16, 2021.
