The Mortal Kombat 2 Film Now Has A Release Date And Is Coming To IMAX

It could be a trick or a treat

Warner Bros. announced today that the much-awaited Mortal Kombat film sequel has finally got a release date.

While the original film was filmed in Adelaide, the sequel was filmed on the Gold Coast across the last couple of years, with the writers strike shutting down production halfway through. Filming wrapped in January 2024 but many were left wondering when the film would actually see the light of day.

Today, Warner Bros. has announced that the film will hit cinemas on October 24th 2025 and will include an IMAX run too.

Of the original cast, everyone looks to be returning, including Lewis Tan as the controversial original character Cole Young.

The original cast included Sonya Blade, Jax Briggs, Raiden, Liu Kang, Shang Tsung, Scorpion, Kano and Kung Lao, with all characters set to appear in the sequel in some capacity. Similarly, Joe Taslim is set to appear again but, sticking true to the game lore will reappear as Noob Saibot.

New additions to the cast include Karl Urban as Johnny Cage, Tati Gabrielle as Jade, Adeline Rudolph as Kitana, Martyn Ford as Shao Kahn, Desmond Chiam as King Jerrod, Ana Thu Nguyen as Queen Sindel and Damon Herriman as Quan Chi.

Given the list of characters being added, it looks like the film will take place in Outworld, specifically Edenia, though nothing has been confirmed yet.

If that’s not enough of a media crossover for you, don’t forget that we got our first look at Homelander in Mortal Kombat 1 last week.
