Mortal Kombat was released to theaters on August 18th 1995 and spent three weeks as the number one film at the US box office, earning over $122 million worldwide. The film, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and based on the arcade and video game series of the same name went on to become a worldwide phenomenon that spawned a sequel titled MORTAL KOMBAT ANNIHILATION an animated series titled MORTAL KOMBAT DEFENDERS OF THE REALM and a live action series titled MORTAL KOMBAT CONQUEST.
Since the release of the first film, fans have longed to have a reunion with the cast that made this movie a super spectacular film. 22 years later on April 25, 2017 fans got exactly that! Film enthusiast and longtime Mortal Kombat fan Kory Davis brought actors Linden Ashby, Chris Casamassa, and Robin Shou who played Johnny Cage, Scorpion, and Liu Kang respectively along with director Paul W.S. Anderson to the legendary TCL Chinese theater in Hollywood for the first ever re-screening of the film and cast reunion since 1995! Fans were in for a big surprise as the single purchase of the movie ticket granted them photo ops with the cast, autographs, a sneak peek at Robin Shous new film “Earthbound”, a special introduction, and a question/answer panel with the cast after the movie. Longtime fans got exactly what they had always dreamed of and it surely was an event that leaves its mark in Mortal Kombat history!!!!
