We’re entering the fourth month of Warner Bros. presenting all their big-screen movies simultaneously on HBO Max, and in April they’ve got a doozy: Mortal Kombat, the third attempt to turn the long-running fighting game series into a movie franchise, and the first in almost 25 years. The new version, directed by Simon McQuoid, reimagines the concept while still maintaining most of your favorite characters from the old arcade classic, including Sub-Zero and Scorpion, played by Joe Taslim and Hiroyuki Sanada, respectively.

Other new HBO Max originals include the premiere of The Nevers, the new show created by Joss Whedon (at least before he left the project during the production of Season 1) and the limited series Mare of Easttown starring Kate Winslet. If you want to dip back into the catalog, there’s GoodfellasThe Mask of ZorroRisky Business, and the Tracy/Hepburn classic Adam’s Rib.
