Fight.

The Mortal Kombat movie has been pushed back to 16th April 2021. It was due out on 15th January.

The reboot launches in cinemas and on HBO Max on the same day - a move that's part of Warner Bros.' controversial strategy to release all its 2021 movies day and date in theatres and on its streaming service in response to the pandemic.

HBO Max isn't out in the UK yet. It's expected to arrive here at some point during the second half of 2021.
