As of December 2023, there is no confirmed release date for Mortal Kombat 2. According to the latest news by Deadline Hollywood, the filming of this movie restarted after it was put on halt due to the SAG-AFTRA strike.

The casting process is now over and shooting is going on in full swing. If everything goes as planned then the movie will hit theaters in late 2024 or early 2025.

The principal photography of MK2 took place in June 2023 at Village Roadshow Studios in Gold Coast, Queensland.

Expected Plot

The exact plot of Mortal Kombat 2 is not known yet. Still, I have some very useful hints for my readers. In an interview with CBR, director Simon McQuoid said, “Character Johnny Cage was not introduced in the film because Johnny Cage was a “giant personality” and would throw the film out of balance”.

However, he reveals that Cage will be part of the movie in the sequel. He also hinted about the possibility of the addition of other mortal characters like Kitana.


Fans are eagerly waiting for the film’s release. However, the production team has not yet released any trailer or teaser for Mortal Kombat 2. The wait for the trailer may be a few months longer. Experts are expecting the teaser release in early 2024. 

Box Office Collection

Film critics are predicting that Mortal Kombat 2 will dominate the box office. It is so because the film series has a huge fan base. Fans are eagerly waiting for the release. It will be interesting to see if this fan base turns into footfalls at theaters.


Fans who are waiting for the release of Mortal Kombat 2 on OTT platforms may need to show patience. Even the theatrical release hasn’t been announced yet. It means that the OTT release is still a long way off. Unfortunately, it seems fans have to wait for at least a year before they can enjoy the sequel.
