Mortal Kombat | January 15 2021 | Warner Bros. | James Wan producing

Recommended Posts

This January release date only adds more worries for the quality of this film. There’s no Johnny Cage, the director is a complete unknown, Lewis Tan is involved. Based on how late his casting was announced compared to others, Liu Kang might not even be the main character.

Just struck me one problem is they keep making video game movies out of the video games that have the least potential for being a good movie because they have little plot.

Ironic that the Bioshock movie fell through, since that is one game I think has enough material and story to make a good movie.

MORTAL KOMBAT - BOO!! stop making videogame movies - they will always, inescapably fail; and this here is the WORST game EVER!!

THE UNTITLED FRED HAMPTON PROJECT - I don't even know who that homie is

Given the box office record of Anime/Magna based big budget movies made by Western Studios, I think WB;s dropping Akira was wise move from a business point of view.

I'm surprised Space Jam 2 hasn't moved yet as it's against Spider-Man on its opening weekend

want to believe moving to January is because they want to get out of Shang-Chi's way but...there's a lot of history of January being just a "fuck it lets pray it makes money" month.

Yeah, January has always been pretty much a dump month,the exception being films that got a limited release in the Holidays opening wide.

The only good thing I see is James Wan producing. 
 

Everyone else are either unknowns, c-list actors from TV, and then there’s Lewis Tan.

True, there's not a lot riding for this movie outside of the property itself.

With good marketing and music (gimme that damn classic catchy theme song, its an all time great), this could actually be a decent hit. No one goes to a movie like this for the plot. If the marketing makes it look cool, that'll be good enough!

Wan's record as a director is solid, but as a producer less so. Too many Wan produced but not directed films have been "meh".
