The Mortal Kombat Film Sequel Now Has A Release Date

The blood-soaked sequel will also hit IMAX

In a report from Deadline, The Mortal Kombat reboot sequel has received a date for it’s bloody impact to splatter us all – as well as a promise of some bigger-than-big screen action to really enjoy the viscera.

Filming wrapped earlier this year, with the film now solidly in pre-production. Delays impacted the film due to the SAG-AFTRA strikes that have occurred, but we are now in a position where the studio is confident in revealing their timeline for release – targeting a 2025 release schedule, so you better mark October 25 on your calendars.

Sequel wise, there are a lot of reasons to be excited for this next entry – particularly if you enjoyed the 2021 original, as I did. Director Simon McQuoid returned to helm the production, and was joined by a positively massive amount of the original cast – going so far as to even pack in a few of the peeps that didn’t survive the first film.

Then for the sake of enjoying some new faces that were conspicuously absent from the first movie – Karl Urban, the absolute legend who has portrayed both Judge Dredd and is a huge face in Amazon’s The Boys, has stepped in to play the gung-ho Hollywood hero of Johnny Cage, joined by other larger than life humans such as:

  • Martyn Ford (F9: The Fast Saga) as Shao Kahn
  • Desmond Chiam (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) as Edenia’s King Jarrod
  • Ana Thu Nguyen (Suka) as Queen Sindel
  • Damon Herriman (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) as Quan Chi
  • Tati Gabrielle (Uncharted) as Jade
  • Adeline Rudolph (Resident Evil) and Kitana

It is a monstrous cast of signature Mortal Kombat faces, promising a real hearty delve into the mythos of Mortal Kombat narrative – with all signs pointing to this particular entry perhaps addressing the titular tournament that lends the series its name. Will we finally see the kompetition take place? I know I’ll be strapping in for October next year to find out.
