Mortal Kombat film producer Todd Garner has confirmed that the team won’t have a release date or a reveal trailer for the film until theaters re-open.
Not a lot has been said about Mortal Kombat film since we've found out that the reboot is finally kicking off, after many years of planning.
The film's screenwriter Greg Russo confirmed last year that Mortal Kombat reboot will be R rated with iconic fatalities appearing for the first time ever on the big screen.
Since then, the details about the film are pretty scarce and it looks like COVID-19 pandemic is one of the biggest reasons for that.
According to Todd Garner, one of the film's producers, a release date for the film is currently off the table and fans who are awaiting to hear more about Mortal Kombat reboot will have to wait a bit longer since the planned reveal trailer is also delayed.
"The pandemic had other plans. We won’t have a release date for the movie until theaters re-open. Same for trailer," Garner tweeted.
As you may know, Mortal Kombat is not the first film to be affected by COVID-19. Many Hollywood blockbusters such as Dune and Tomb Raider 2 had their releases delayed and sadly, many other are expected to arrive later than originally scheduled.
Anway, in case you're not familiar with Mortal Kombat reboot , it tells the original tournament story and will focus on key characters such as Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Raiden, Shang Tsung, Sonya Blade, Sub-Zero and Scorpion.
