Wondering where to watch Mortal Kombat? Look no further as we consider where the 2021 film is streaming. Is it on Netflix?
When it comes to video game movie adaptations, they usually tend to be largely swept away or split.
Recent examples range from Warcraft To Assassin’s Creed, but there has been some sort of success story lately. Cinema 2020 Sonic the hedgehog was pretty well received, so maybe Mortal Kombat can triumph as well.
Based on the game series of the same name, directorial debut Simon McQuoid is set to reboot the Mortal Kombat film series and stars Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Joe Taslim and Hiroyuki Sanada.
In 1997, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation has been criticized by critics and audiences alike, but the trailers for the latest incarnation on screen have raised hopes with audiences. So here’s where to watch Mortal Kombat …

Simon McQuoid on Mortal Kombat
The director of the film recently spoke to ScreenRant and they asked him why he took such a grounded and sincere approach to mythology:
“I felt that in a video game… there are a lot of things you can get away with because it’s not really good. Not only the art level, but also the way someone’s costume might be or the way someone jumps, or the superpowers. But when you make that happen, you can throw yourself into a bad Halloween party very quickly.
He added, “So I wanted to make sure it was incredibly deep and rich and layered and textured and heavy and elemental to counterbalance the potential to rock in that kind of dirt.”
Mortal Kombat is available in theaters and on HBO Max starting Friday, April 23, 2021.
