On April 23, “Mortal Kombat,” a brand-new movie based on the popular video game series, debuted on HBO Max and in cinemas. This live-action “Mortal Kombat” revival is classified R and includes the gory “fatalities” that made the original game a worldwide sensation, in contrast to the “Mortal Kombat” movies released in the late ’90s.
To show fans how brutal the movie’s fighting will be, Warner Bros. also released the first seven minutes of the movie along with an unedited trailer. One of the most recognizable scenes from the franchise features Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the free preview.
The 1992 arcade game “Mortal Kombat” features supernatural fighters who are capable of tearing each other’s bodies apart in a match of martial arts. Despite criticism over its graphic representations of violence, the most recent installment, “Mortal Kombat 11,” was one of the year’s best-selling games. For fans of all ages, “Mortal Kombat” has been adapted over the years into comic books, cartoons, and movies.
‘Mortal Kombat’ on Hbo Max: How To Watch
The most recent Warner Bros. movie to debut on HBO Max the same day it opens in theatres is “Mortal Kombat.” The movie debuted on April 23 and will be accessible to all HBO Max members until May 24.
For $15 per month, HBO Max offers ad-free access to tens of thousands of more films and television programs. A $10 per month ad-supported option will debut in June, although it will exclude same-day theatre premieres. More details regarding the service are available in our HBO Max guide and comprehensive review.
HBO Max doesn’t typically provide a free trial, but if you’ve never made an HBO account before, there might be a solution. HBO Max offers a seven-day free trial to Hulu members who join up for the service using their Hulu account. Remember that this won’t work if you’ve already streamed HBO using the same email address.
The majority of media devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple products, Android, PlayStation, Xbox, and Samsung smart TVs, as well as web browsers make HBO Max accessible. On compatible devices, “Mortal Kombat” will stream in 4K quality with Dolby Vision, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos.
What Additional Fresh Films Will Be Available on Hbo Max?
HBO Max customers may access “Mortal Kombat,” as well as the thrillers “Those Who Wish Me Dead,” starring Angelina Jolie, through June 14, and “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” beginning June 4. Before the year is over, more than ten films, including “Dune” and “The Suicide Squad,” will have their HBO Max debuts.
This distribution method was implemented by Warner Bros. in 2020 to increase viewership during the COVID-19 epidemic, but the company has already made an announcement about an exclusive agreement with Regal that will see new films released in Regal theatres first in 2022.
