Mortal Kombat has been re-released to coincide with the release of the new game of the same name on April 19, 2011. It has been 16 years since Mortal Kombat first came to theaters and whetted fans' appetites for combat and action. The film grossed just over 122 Million worldwide. Mortal Kombat was filmed mostly in Los Angeles, California, with the occasional scene in Thailand. Paul Anderson directed this film and he later went on to direct the first Resident Evil movie that sparked 3 sequels and another in the works. Mortal Kombat is primarily based around the first video game, Mortal Kombat, but also includes characters from Mortal Kombat 2.
