Warner Bros announces Mortal Kombat on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD
I remember playing the original Mortal Kombat arcade game and being blown away by the level of violence I had never seen before in a game like that. When it finally made the transition to the big screen with the 1995 film of the same name. I love this film and even got to do a martial arts demo promotion at our local theater for it. In 1997 it released a less than stellar sequel, then rebooted it with a gritty online series in 2011and a badass animated feature in 2020.
Mortal Kombat follows MMA fighter Cole Young, who is accustomed to taking a beating for money, that is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt him 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?
In addition to the film this release will feature bonus content including deleted scenes and numerous featurettes that take you behind bringing this latest addition of the game to life. Grab your copy of Mortal Kombat when it hits digital on June 11th and then on 4K Ultra, Blu-ray and DVD on July 13th from Warner Bros Home Entertainment.
