Star Cineplex reopens with ‘Mortal Kombat’

Country’s leading multiplex chain Star Cineplex has reopened its branches in the capital with a screening of Hollywood film Mortal Kombat following Covid health safety guidelines on Sunday, said a press release.

The Star Cineplex closed on April 5 when the government imposed restrictions on public movement and business operations.

 Mortal Kombat is a 2021 American martial arts fantasy film based on the video game franchise of the same name and a reboot of the Mortal Kombat film series. The film stars Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Joe Taslim, and Hiroyuki Sanada.

It is directed by Simon McQuoid (in his feature directorial debut), from a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham and a screen story by Russo and Oren Uziel. The film follows Cole Young, a washed-up mixed martial arts fighter who is unaware of his hidden lineage or why assassin Sub-Zero is hunting him down. Concerned for the safety of his family, he seeks out a clique of fighters that were chosen to defend Earthrealm against Outworld.
