Arriving on HBO Max and in theaters in April, Mortal Kombat returns to live-action with an R rated reboot starring Lewis Tan, Joe Taslim, Jessica McNamee, Mehcad Brooks, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ludi Lin, Max Huang and more as the best warriors of Earthrealm battle for the fate of the planet against the supernatural warriors of Outworld.
Mortal Kombat gets animated with the first R rated adaptation of the long-running franchise, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, which puts a new spin on the story of the original Mortal Kombat by focusing on Scorpion and his quest for vengeance against Sub-Zero.
Following in the wake of the more recent, R rated, DC Animated films, WB Animation is going back to the original Mortal Kombat with this spring’s Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge animated film.
Auto Pilot is back once again for the summer and we’re kicking things off with the wonderfully insane martial arts show from 1995, WMAC Masters, that is like if Mortal Kombat and the WWE had a kid friendly baby as real life martial artists adopt wacky alter egos and compete for a shot to claim the Dragon Star.
Debuting in 1996, MK: Defenders of the Realm tied into both the first live action movie and Mortal Kombat 3, which debuted the year before, and followed Liu Kang, Sonya, Jax, Stryker, Raiden, Kitana and Sub-Zero as they defender Earthrealm from the invading forces of Shao Khan.
