Warner Bros. has moved the release date of the Mortal Kombat reboot from March 2021 to January of the same year.

The Mortal Kombat franchise is set to return to the big screen with a new reboot from Warner Bros. and now fans can expect to see the latest adaptation of the video a little sooner than previously announced. Initially, the Mortal Kombat reboot was scheduled to be released in theaters on March 5, 2021.

However, Warner Bros. has now set the Mortal Kombat reboot to be released in theaters on January 15, 2021. Production on the upcoming film is currently underway.

The Mortal Kombat franchise launched with the first video game in 1992 and has since expanded to include several sequels. Plot details for the new Mortal Kombat film are currently unknown, though the video games center on a roster of characters from different realm who fight for supremacy.

The video game was first adapted into a Mortal Kombat feature film directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. The film earned a worldwide total of $122 million and is widely regarded as one of the better adaptations of a video game.

Directed by Simon McQuoid from a script written by Greg Russo, Mortal Kombat stars Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Mehcad Brooks as Jax,  Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Sisi Stringer Mileena, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, and Lewis Tan in an undisclosed role.

Mortal Kombat is scheduled to be released in theaters on January 15, 2021.
