The Mortal Kombat Movie Will Be R Rated And Have Fatalities

They've never appeared in the movie adaptations before but you'll now be able to watch at least some of these play out on the silver screen according to screenwriter Greg Russo.

You may be still patiently waiting for the next Mortal Kombat 11 DLC fighter packs but there's plenty more coming from the world of Mortal Kombat - including yet another attempt at a movie.

Russo revealed these details on Twitter, telling fans that he wanted to put rumours to bed. "MK WILL be R-Rated and for the first time EVER, FATALITIES will FINALLY be on the big screen", he wrote with an enthusiasm for the Caps Lock key going beyond healthy norms. I don't necessarily believe the movie needs to be as gory as the recent games, but just some acknowledge of the trademark "fatalities" would go a long way in paying reverence to the source material. It looks like that's all set to change with the new movie, however.

The new Mortal Kombat movie is looking to change that perception: Fatalities are in, and so is a no-holds-barred R-Rating. The more passive rating threw a blockade at the franchise's infamous fatalities. Perhaps they'll follow the time-hopping shenanigans of Mortal Kombat 11 as a workaround for some extra deaths without needing a larger cast. The recordings should start later this year, followed by a release in March 2021. Taslim is known for his roles in The Raid: Redemption, The Night Comes For Us, and the Warrior TV series.
