Will the Mortal Kombat movie that’s coming be as violent as the games? You know, be R-rated?
Mortal Kombat in the live-action movie/series setting has had mixed success. The first movie helped kick off the phenomenon. But its sequel (and the reviled animated series) pushed it back. There were some web-series that tried to continue the franchise in their own way, but it didn’t work out too well.
Now though, a reboot movie is coming, and according to sources, it will be R-Rated, even including Fatalities (meaning the games’ moves) for the first time.
Since it's already been stated by other members of the team, I'm gonna put this one to bed. MK WILL be R-Rated and for the first time EVER, FATALITIES will FINALLY be on the big screen (and no I'm not gonna say which ones) You'll just have to wait for the movie & see!!! 😉 pic.twitter.com/aVTewH4t28

The film does not have a release date yet, but it will begin filming this year, and casting has slowly been done.
