It seems like fans of Mortal Kombat in the United States will have to wait a little bit longer to catch the highly anticipated movie.
Warner Bros. have announced that Mortal Kombat will be postponed for another week so as to avoid clashing with the release of Godzilla vs Kong. Initially slated to release on 16 April, Mortal Kombat will now release on 23 April.
The big-budget clash of the titans movie has been raking in ticket sales and optimism at the international box office. The studio hopes that spacing out potential blockbusters will avoid cannibalisation of ticket sales.
Fortunately for fans in Southeast Asia, the video-game film will stick with the 8 April opening. Fans have been looking forward to this reboot for a very long time. The movie is said to retain the iconic theme and will keep true to its R-rated nature.
Mortal Kombat stars Lewis Tan, Joe Taslim, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ludi Lin, Max Huang, Mehcad Brooks, Tadanobu Asano, Chin Han, Sisi Stringer, Elissa Cadwell, Jessica McNamee and John Lawson.
