A producer of the Mortal Kombat reboot announces on his social networks that new details of the film will be released today.
Mortal Kombat is one of the most popular video game franchises. Created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, the title was conceived as an arcade video game. The first installments came in this format. Until the first consoles were developed. The potential Mortal Kombat was palpable from the beginning and studies echoed it. The first Mortal Kombat adaptation was released in 1995. Now Warner Bros prepares a reboot and we would have new details today.
This is what producer Todd Garner announces on his social networks. Garner shared the logo of the Mortal Kombat movie on his Twitter account. The publication is accompanied by a message: “News tomorrow. ” So throughout the day details of the new adaptation of the popular franchise would have to be known. Details have been kept well guarded so fans can expect a first look at the tape.
Recently Warner Bros announced that Mortal Kombat would be one of the studio’s numerous titles that would be released in theaters and stream simultaneously. A precedent set by Wonder Woman 1984 and that will continue throughout 2021. The film is scheduled to be released in January of next year. After being delayed for causes related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The film finished its filming in December 2019. But he has managed to keep secrecy and little is known about the plot and what the characters will look like. It is expected to adapt part of the story from the first installments. Mortal Kombat (2021) will feature three martial arts masters taken to an island. Here they will have to face each other in a tournament that will mark the fate of the world.
This is not the first Mortal Kombat adaptation. In 1995 Paul WS Anderson was commissioned to bring the characters of the franchise to the big screen. The live-action movie was a risk because of the poor success of video game adaptations. But although it was far from the original material, he managed to satisfy his audience. The 1997 sequel did not achieve the same.
This first adaptation got the approval of the public and won the love of many fans of the franchise. For this reason, creator Ed Boon announced that Mortal Kombat 11 would include skins of some of the characters from the 1995 film. The reboot promises great fights and violent scenes, two of the pillars of Mortal Kombat. So it is expected that it will get the go-ahead from the audience and fans.
Video game adaptations are the order of the day. With better and worse results but they always promise an audience. Titles like Sonic The Movie and Detective Pikachu show that it is not necessary to fully respect the source material. If not, they put forward creating something entertaining for the public.
