The new Mortal Kombat feature film has officially been released in movie theaters, but if you prefer to watch the live-action adaptation of the popular fighting video game franchise, you can stream it now on HBO Max.
The new Mortal Kombat movie was released in both HBO Max and theaters on Friday, April 23, 2021, but the film will only be available on the streaming service for 31 days from today, so if you're looking for an action-packed movie loaded with spectacular fights and brutality, you may want to check it out on HBO Max.
Just like other major Warner Bros. films coming to HBO Max this year, Mortal Kombat will be available to stream in 4K with HDR. Of course, some fans would prefer to watch Mortal Kombat in IMAX theaters, but with the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting many areas, it's good to have the option to watch it at home.
The HBO Max's monthly subscription price is $14.99, which is about the same as a price of a movie ticket. Subscribers can cancel auto-renew after signing up, but you might want to keep the subscription going to watch the rest of the Warner Bros. films schedule to release this year.
Check out the synopsis for the Mortal Kombat reboot film here:
"MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld's Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family's safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth's greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?"
Mortal Kombat is now available to watch in theaters, and on HBO Max.
