TRMK reader, ZoopSoul, who writes for IGN Movies has an exclusive story about the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie Blu-ray releases in the US. He has learned that both movies are being released on Blu-ray along side of the video games on April 19th, 2011. An extra bonus is that these editions will contain exclusive codes to unlock a Jade Klassic Costume in the PlayStation 3 version of Mortal Kombat (2011). Seems Xbox 360 owners are out of luck on this deal, likely because they can easily assume more than likely your Blu-ray player is a PlayStation 3.

This US release seems to have a few more features than the Barebones Canadian releases from last year as it's including a copy of Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins. Here is a rundown of the special features.

The releases will contain bonus materials and extra features, and will both be available for the MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) of $19.98.

The Mortal Kombat Blu-ray will feature the following bonus materials:

-- Animated piece, Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins
-- Theatrical Trailer
-- Digital Copy
-- HD Mortal Kombat Videogame Trailer

The Mortal Kombat: Annihilation Blu-ray will feature the following bonus materials:

-- Theatrical Trailer
-- Digital Copy
-- HD Mortal Kombat Videogame Trailer


Who will be picking these movies up as well on "Toasty Tuesday"? Personally I'll be grabbing the first movie only, no need to relive the horror that Mortal Kombat: Annihilation was again.

Update 2/3/2011: A reader just sent us a look at an ordering page ad for the movie release, that includes a small look at what may be Jade's classic outfit. This lists a "order by" date which is for retailers, so don't worry about missing out if you wait until release day. You can check it out the ad below:

That's an awesome news!!!! Hope that they will release it in europe. Even if the number of fans is pretty low compare to US.

HD Mortal Kombat Videogame Trailer? This is MK9, I assume?

I will definitely be picking up the first movie. Linden Ashby + Jade Klassic Kostume = Flawless victory on my part!

Yes a trailer of the upcoming game, likely a longer trailer like we may see showing up on TV and maybe cinemas as well before the release of the game.

I hope than one day NRstudio will release a KOMPLETE EDITION of MK9, with ALL the DLC bonus, for EVERYONE (Wbox users, foreign fans, etc.)! At the end of 2011 ? it would be great for X-Mas !

What's with all that pre-order and special release Klassis Costume add-ons? Within a few months after release of the game, they will put it on PSN or Xbox Live for download... But Blu-ray MK is always good, so instant buy!! LOL :D

Finally a proper BD release of the movie. The Canadian releases, as always thanks to Alliance, are always iffy. It's out on the same day as the long-awaited Taxi Driver release :D

Yes! I can't wait for Taxi Driver on Blu, been anticipating it for a long time. Big Scorsese fan. I hope the MK BD gets a good transfer as well, sure it's not a great movie, but a part of my childhood that I'd like preserved.

Does anybody know if they'll release these extra costumes as DLC later? Cause I don't really need yet another copy of the movie...

Uh... No. Just download them. Then you've got yourself a complete game.

I actually have a VHS of The Journey Begins. The back of the cover mentions Virtual Reality, I lolled.

I don't smoke, but I find it kind of comical that "Toasty Tuesday" falls on the day before 4/20.

Updated the first post with an image of Jade.

Jaaaaaaaaaaaade! She's sooooooo beautiful!!!

Even though that image is but a mere glimpse of her classic outfit, I already like it a ton better than her new outfit!

Same here. That small little piece of her is already better than he MK9 look. I seriously hope Mileena gets this skin as well...

How the crap do I pre-order?

I'm curious about this blu ray release. Is the quality of the actual blu ray going to be better on the first movie? Because there is already a blu ray of the first mortal kombat out. The only reason i'm wondering is because I want to get this movie on blu ray to tide me over til the game, and i really don't care about the extra costume. But if the new blu ray is a better quality then I might wait.
