Vietnam to see blockbuster 'Mortal Kombat' two weeks before int’l audiences

Hollywood blockbuster “Mortal Kombat” is scheduled for release in the United States on April 23, but Vietnamese audiences will see it two weeks earlier.

Mortal Kombat is an American martial arts fantasy action film based on the video game franchise of the same name created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. It is a reboot of the Mortal Kombat film series. The film stars Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Joe Taslim, and Hiroyuki Sanada.

Following the 1995 and 1997 films Mortal Kombat, a third Mortal Kombat film languished in development for nearly two decades.

In late 2010, Warner Bros. Pictures, of parent company, Warner Bros. Entertainment, acquired the franchise from Midway Games in 2009. It began developing a new film, with Kevin Tancharoen serving as director from a script written by Uziel in the wake of their Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short film.
