Mortal Kombat's new film is now less than two weeks away from its official release, and there's a cool visual piece to feast our eyes on to make the wait less of a brutality to endure.

The talented Bosslogic, who we've featured many times on EventHubs in the past for his great fighting game art, got the opportunity to create the official IMAX poster for the movie, and it's kinda a banger.

Even when the player isn't in direct control, the characters are sometimes engaged in epic battles during story cutscenes. Real life martial artists from Gamology have recently created a video that showcases them recreating some of Mortal Kombat 11 and Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath's iconic fight scenes.

Here are some unclear deaths that have seemingly happened throughout Mortal Kombat's two main timelines

The Mortal Kombat series is a fighting game franchise known for putting some extra emphasis on the narrative and single player modes. While the Mortal Kombat story does not appear to have any qualms about killing off characters when it's appropriate for the narrative, it's not always clear on when it happens.

BruskPoet recently released a video that covers some of these unclear deaths. The first character covered in the video is Ermac, the Fusion of Souls.

John Tobias reveals the real reason why Johnny Cage was killed off and cut from Mortal Kombat 3 and it has nothing to do with the story

Mortal Kombat is one of the few fighting games where death plays a vital role in the plot and most characters have met their end at some point or another before almost always being resurrected after a short break away.

In the early days of the series, Johnny Cage's sudden demise and exclusion from the roster of Mortal Kombat 3 was perhaps the most surprising to players popping quarters into the new arcade cabinet, and MK Co-creator John Tobias recently opened up about the real reason he says the actor was sidelined in 1995.

Here are a few characters that can successfully stop Sheeva's Dragon Drop special with consistency in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate

Last week, TrueUnderDawgGaming experimented with some moves to figure out what beats Sheeva's controversial Dragon Drop special in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. Unfortunately, he had many difficulties finding a move that worked with consistency, and without any caveats.

In response to that video, TrueUnderDawgGaming received numerous comments about some moves that he didn't try during the experiments. With the right character in tow, Sheeva's Dragon Drop can be beaten.

Iconic Mortal Kombat movie theme updated for 2021 film, now with more dubstep

From plenty of epic fights to $5,000 sunglasses, there are more than a few reasons we remember and love the 1995 Mortal Kombat film. That said, the single best thing to come out of it is unequivocally The Immortals' Techno Syndrome theme song as it gets the hairs on our arms to stand up to this day.

With the next live action Mortal Kombat movie coming out in two weeks' time, Warner Brothers has decided to share a snippet of the updated version of Techno Syndrome which, as they note, is sprinkled with "modern dubstep elements."

Here's why Cetrion may be the most hated character in Mortal Kombat 11 right now

NetherRealm Studios took the restrictor cap off of Mortal Kombat 11 last November when they decided to allow custom variations in competitive play and thus grant players a lot more power in the way of constructing the strongest versions of their characters.

While this surely sent a surge of hype and newfound creativity through Mortal Kombat 11, it also opened up all new potential for characters to pair incredibly effective maneuvers together, thus making a few roster members feel frustratingly overpowered. The community has famously been hounding on Sheeva in more recent months, but the title of "most hated" seems currently held by one of game's original fighters: Cetrion.

Cyrax has historically had insane damage in Mortal Kombat, but there was one time when the cyborg's damage just couldn't cut it with everyone else

Cyrax is typically known for having outright insane damage attached to his combos in the Mortal Kombat series. This is especially true in Mortal Kombat 9 when he was capable of quite literally breaking the combo system thanks to his unblockable bomb resets.

However, there was one game in the Mortal Kombat series where Cyrax was considered to be one of the weakest characters in the game because his damage was far lower than the rest of the cast. All this and more has been covered in PNDK&M's latest video upload titled "The Ultimate Kombo Machine - Competitive History of Cyrax."

'It's not all CG I promise you' - Mortal Kombat cast discuss what makes the movie special alongside new footage that appears to show Shao Kahn

Mortal Kombat's mix of martial arts and fantastical elements made it the perfect breakout candidate for a film adaptation in the '90s, and that appeal doesn't appear to be lost on those in charge of bringing the new movie to life.

IGN recently released a new video featuring the main cast and crew of the film talking about what makes Mortal Kombat special in their eyes alongside footage we haven't gotten to see before that includes perhaps our first good looks at Shao Kahn in the film.

What characters can consistently stop Sheeva's infamous Dragon Drop in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate?

Sheeva in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate might just be one of the most hated characters in modern fighting game history. I must admit that I too am never exactly thrilled with being the opponent of Sheeva players.

The reason for the disdain that's been growing for Sheeva is because of her unblockable Dragon Drop special. As pointed out by TrueUnderDawgGaming, even professional competitors are having difficulties when it comes to dealing with the Queen of the Shokan. He recently released a video that has him attempting to find characters that can consistently deal with the dreaded Dragon Drop special.

NetherRealm Studios might be setting up for a new Mortal Kombat 11 reveal this month

We've been waiting decades for a new live action Mortal Kombat film, and so it was rough to hear the news a few days back that the one slated for an April 16 release was pushed back a week to April 23, but a keen observation from unCAGEDgamez has us speculating that the delay may be well worth the wait.

The given reason for holding the film back makes enough sense: Warner Bros. doesn't want it to have to compete as much with their recently released Godzilla vs. Kong. However, April 23 happens to be the two year anniversary of Mortal Kombat 11's release, and it's been quite some time since we last got or heard about any new DLC for the game.

Mortal Kombat 2021 movie delayed until April 23

The 2021 Mortal Kombat movie that was slated to debut at theaters and HBO Max on April 16 has been delayed by a week. Fans will now have to wait until April 23 to see the revival of Scorpion and Sub-Zero's bitter animosity towards one another.

According to Variety, this decision intends to space Mortal Kombat out with another potential blockbuster that will be releasing tomorrow, "Godzilla vs. Kong." Warner Brothers hopes to avoid a situation where ticket sales between the two movies are cannibalized.

Shot for shot Lego recreation of Mortal Kombat film trailer is so well done it deserves a second watch

To be honest, we've scoured the trailers and TV spots for the upcoming Mortal Kombat film so many times that the magic is kind of gone at this point. You can only see Liu Kang dramatically conjure a flaming dragon or Sub-Zero freeze up a blood-cicle so many times before it all gets a little redundant... but then, what if it were all done with Legos?

What if it were done with Legos in a faithful shot for shot recreation of the first trailer that's so well executed we have to remind ourselves the plan wasn't to make a Lego version of Mortal Kombat all along?
