Warner Bros. and New Line have delayed the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot a week.

Mortal Kombat was initially set to bow in theaters and HBO Max simultaneously on April 16 and now Warner Bros. and New Line have pushed the film back a week. The move is to give Godzilla Vs. Kong some more leg room to make bank at the box office. The upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot will now be released on April 23.
