History Of This Movie
Mortal Kombat: Annihilation performed fairly well as a 1997 video game film; But we are not going to talk about the first film in this article.
More than 20 years after the release of Mortal Kombat: Destruction, based on the Mortal Kombat video game series, James Vaughan, director of films such as The Conjuring and Aquaman, has decided to work on a remake of the original film. Mortal Kombat took over; Of course, Van is present in this project as a producer.
Simon McQueid is set to direct the reboot in his first directing experience. Greg Rousseau, who is also working on a reboot of Resident Evil, will co-star in Mortal Kombat.
The story of Mortal Kombat 2021
At this time we can not talk definitively about the story of Mortal Kombat; Because no official synopsis has been released for this film yet.
So we can speculate that this reboot probably follows the rough structure of games in which fighters like Liu Kang and Sonia Blade enter a tournament to save the earth from the evil wizard Sheng Sung.
Another thing we know about Mortal Kombat 2021 is that it does not prevent bloody scenes in any way, and we will see some prominent deaths adapted from video games.
Greg Rousseau wrote on Twitter about the age of Mortal Kombat 2021:
“Mortal Kombat 2021 will be built for the first time as an adult; Deaths and endings will be portrayed on the big screen screens of cinemas. “(And no, I’m not going to say which of the deaths and the endings.) You just have to wait and see the movie.”
