There have been several Mortal Kombat movie and TV adaptations since the infamous fighting game’s release in the early 1990s, with the vast majority of them struggling to capture the violence (and fatalities) that drew gamers to arcades and frightened parents nearly 30 years ago. With Simon McQuoid’s highly awaited remake of the classic Midway arcade franchise, that will all change. But, with just a few weeks before the film’s release on April 23, you’re still wondering where you can watch Mortal Kombat online.
Fortunately for you and everyone else who has been anticipating Mortal Kombat since Sub-Zero literally froze Jax’s arms off in the first bone-chilling trailer, watching the film is a lot easier than typing in a fatality order. And, surprisingly, Mortal Kombat won’t set you back as much as an afternoon spent feeding quarters into an outdated arcade machine.
If you’ve been stuck in Outworld for a few centuries, someone with an HBO Max account can stream Mortal Kombat on the same day it hits theaters, which is Friday, April 23. Mortal Kombat will be available to watch online for 31 days, giving everyone the chance to see all the gruesome moments and deaths we want to see as the movie raises its R rating to the limit as part of Warner Bros.’ 2021 release model.
