Mortal Kombat 2, the highly anticipated sequel to 2021’s reboot of the popular video game-based movie franchise, is set to begin production soon. Todd Garner, the producer of Mortal Kombat 2, recently confirmed the filming schedule and location for the upcoming project. The news has excited fans of the franchise who have been eagerly waiting for the next installment.
The Mortal Kombat franchise has a long and storied history. The original game was released in 1992 and quickly became a cultural phenomenon due to its violent gameplay and iconic characters. The game spawned multiple sequels and spinoffs, as well as several movies and TV shows.
However, the Mortal Kombat movie franchise had a rocky start. The first film, released in 1995, was a commercial success but received mixed reviews from critics. Its sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, was a critical and commercial failure, effectively killing the franchise’s cinematic aspirations for over two decades.
That changed in 2021 when a new Mortal Kombat film was released. The movie rebooted the franchise and received a mixed response from critics but was a modest box office success. The film’s success convinced Warner Bros. to greenlight a sequel in early 2022, much to the delight of fans.
Now, over a year later, the sequel is finally getting off the ground. According to Garner, filming for Mortal Kombat 2 will take place in Australia, where the first film was also shot. The producer also teased that the sequel would feature even more of the over-the-top violence and martial arts action that made the first film a hit.
Fans are understandably excited about Mortal Kombat 2. The franchise’s combination of martial arts action, fantasy elements, and brutal violence has always been a winning formula, and the success of the first film has only stoked fans’ enthusiasm for the upcoming sequel.
The Mortal Kombat franchise has always been a fan favorite, and the success of the 2021 reboot has breathed new life into the series. With the sequel now officially in production, fans can look forward to another thrilling and action-packed journey into the world of Mortal Kombat.
