The latest film from Warner Bros., ‘Mortal Kombat’, is now available to stream via PVOD, in Canada alongside its theatrical debut.
The release of ‘Mortal Kombat’ on PVOD follows the same structure as other Warner Bros. films have throughout the pandemic. Similar to ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, and ‘Godzilla VS Kong’, ‘Mortal Kombat’ will be available to rent through video streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video, for $24.99 CAD. Those who opt to rent the film from home will then be given a 48-hour window to watch the film.
‘Mortal Kombat’ is the latest live-action adaptation of the iconic NetherRealm video game franchise. The film is being treated as a reboot, completely separate from 1995’s ‘Mortal Kombat’ and 1997’s ‘Mortal Kombat: Annihilation’.
The film centers around Cole Young, an MMA fighter and new face to the series. Young’s life is turned upside down as he is attacked by the deadly assassin Sub Zero. He is then wrapped up in defeating Outworld enemies in order to defend Earthrealm alongside its other fighters.
‘Mortal Kombat’ is directed by Simon McQuoid, making this McQuoid’s first major directorial project. The film features a cast including Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Joe Taslim, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Tadanobu Asano, Chin Han, and Hiroyuki Sanada.

Of course, the film is also available to watch in theatres, where the opening of theatres has been permitted and viewers can enjoy the film in a safe environment.
