It'll be a While Before We See a Trailer for the Mortal Kombat Movie

The Mortal Kombat 2021 movie suffers a COVID-related delay, but the virus hasn't dealt a finishing blow to the film.

The Mortal Kombat (2021) movie is delayed until further notice, Todd Garner, one of the film's producers, said on Twitter.

COVID-19 interfered with the production team's plans for re-shooting scenes. The original plan was top have work finished by March. Now, though, Garner said it's likely there won't be an anticipated release date for the film or even a trailer until after theaters re-open.

Currently, there's no telling when that might be. Meanwhile, the new Mortal Kombat movie remains suspended in post-production, according to iMDB.

When it does release, the Mortal Kombat movie will feature classic characters from the storied series, including Sub-Zero, Mileena (who also features in the upcoming Ultimate expansion), and Sonya Blade.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
