New Line’s launch of the trailer for Mortal Kombat has garnered 116 million views.
As a result, it has become the biggest red band trailer launch ever, moving ahead of comic book movie trailers for Logan and Deadpool 2.
The film is directed by Simon McQuoid (in his feature directorial debut) from a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham and a story by Oren Uziel and Russo.
Joe Taslim was the first actor cast for the production in July 2019, as Sub-Zero. In August, Mehcad Brooks, Tadanobu Asano, Sisi Stringer, and Ludi Lin were cast in the roles of Jax, Raiden, Mileena, and Liu Kang respectively. Later that month, Josh Lawson, Jessica McNamee, Chin Han and Hiroyuki Sanada were cast as Kano, Sonya Blade, Shang Tsung and Scorpion respectively.
The film was shot in South Australia and is set to be released on HBO Max and in theaters on April 16th.
