Mortal Kombat 2 the film has an official release date in theaters

Warner Bros. has announced the official release date of Mortal Kombat 2, the new film based on the famous fighting game series: here’s when it will arrive.

Mortal Kombat 2 , the new film based on the famous fighting game series by NetherRealm Studios, has an official release date : it will debut in cinemas on October 24, 2025.

As reported some time ago, in this sequel Karl Urban from The Boys will play Johnny Cage and Tati Gabrielle will play Jade , but the cast will also include Adeline Rudolph, Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Damon Herriman , Martyn Ford, Chin Han, Joe Taslim and Hiroyuki Sanadat.

We will find Simon McQuoid directing, while the screenplay for Mortal Kombat 2 will be signed by Jeremy Slater, one of the authors of the popular Moon Knight television series , which could give the film’s plot an unexpected twist: we’ll see.

Is the second time the best?

As you may have read in our review of Mortal Kombat , the film produced by Warner Bros. was able to bring the ultraviolent action and atmosphere of the video game to the big screen , without disappointing spectators’ expectations from this point of view.

At the same time, however, the film was exposed to a whole series of important critical issues related to the plot: a banal and obvious protagonist, terrible dialogues, poorly characterized characters and some questionable narrative solutions.

Is Jeremy Slater’s hiring therefore linked to the desire to straighten out these distortions? We’ll find out in the fall of next year.
