After getting roasted for butchering 6lack's lyrics on Lil Durk's "Stay Down", Lebron James is back in the news as new footage from Space Jam: A New Legacy, along with other highly anticipated films, begins to circulate. Pictures had announced that instead of continuously delaying it's slate of prospective releases further down the pipeline because of the pandemic, it will now release it's movies, scheduled to debut in 2021, both in the theatres and on their streaming platform HBO Max on the same day.
Max has unveiled its February 2021 movie and TV highlights, including two Warner Bros. theatricals premiering in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day.
Mortal Kombat It will arrive in theaters and for a limited time at HBO Max, in the U.S., on April 16, 2021.
The footage is spliced throughout, but we do get to hear our first piece of dialogue in the film and also see Sub Zero using his powers on a street. Ooh, looks like the supervillains are going to stir up loads of trouble!
Michael Gandolfini is introduced as Antonio Soprano in footage for The Many Saints of Newark, a prequel to The Sopranos.
As if that wasn't already enough to convince movie buffs to subscribe to the service; Judas And The Black Messiah, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Mortal Kombat, Tom & Jerry: The Movie, The Little Things, In The Heights, Cry Macho, Space Jam: A New Legacy, Malignant, and The Matrix 4 will all see releases this year and were featured in the sizzle reel.

Also, the title card at the end calls the movie simply Matrix, which could be an official title or could simply be a place holder for an official title, it's not entirely clear.
The action-packed film will launch internationally, where HBO Max is not available, ahead of North America on March 26. Are you excited to watch the team return on HBO Max?
