Johnny Cage’s origin hits home video next month with Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match

The Cage Match is about to begin. The latest Mortal Kombat Legends film has its launch date, and it’s coming up in October.

That’s a low blow

Officially the fourth movie in the Mortal Kombat Legends series, Cage Match tells the tale of Johnny Cage’s origin. A feature length movie, it’s set to keep the same animation style as the likes of Snow Blind and Battle of the Realms, and the vocal talents of actor Joel McHale in the title role.

Although there’ll be a bunch of faces MK fans will know well like Shinnok and Raiden, there’ll also be a cast-full of new arrivals. And voicing those characters will be a deep cast, with actors like Gilbert Gottfried, Phil LaMarr, and Jennifer Grey playing… herself. That’s gonna be interesting.

Neon lights… Suits with shoulder pads… Jumping from explosions in slow motion… In 1980s Hollywood, action star Johnny Cage (Joel McHale) is looking to become an A-list actor. But when his costar, Jennifer (Jennifer Grey), goes missing from set, Johnny finds himself thrust into a world filled with shadows, danger and deceit. As he embarks on a bloody journey, Johnny quickly discovers the City of Angels has more than a few devils in its midst. He faces off against a sinister secret society plotting a nefarious scheme, but the brutal fight against the bloodthirsty warriors of the Netherrealm is just beginning. Can Johnny, alongside other Mortal Kombatlegends, save humanity…and, more importantly, his career?

Warner Bros press release

As mentioned above, this flick is coming up quick. Fans of NetherRealm’s bloody universe will be able to check out Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match on DVD and Blu-ray as of October 16th, 2023. Prefer digital? That’s hitting the very next day, on October 17th.
