Mortal Kombat 2021: Director Simon McQuoid has come up with another piece of art, spiced up with adventure, action, and fantasy. The release date for the movie is set as April 16, 2021. It is said that each fight in the movie has a story of its own. Mortal Kombat is an adaptation of a hit video game of the same name.
MORTAL KOMBAT 1995
Earlier, in 1995 Paul W.S. Anderson made an adaptation of the game. This turned out to be a great success. Yet it is believed that being such a famous video game series, it is tough to make a movie out of it. Due to the high standards been already set by Anderson, making another MK movie would be a tedious job.
The 1995 movie still has a special place in the hearts of MK fans. Both Simon McQuoid and his team are trying their level best to not only meet the high expectations of the MK fans but also smashing those expectations to pieces like an ice grenade to the torso. Surely after 20 long years of wait, we will finally hear someone screaming” FINISH HIM
