New 'Mortal Kombat' becomes R-rated


To do that, it would have needed an R rating.

Everything is looking good for the upcoming Mortal Kombat film reboot.

I hereby confirm that the new Mortal Kombat film will be R-rated and will FINALLY show FATALITIES on the silver screen.

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.

"Since it's already been stated by other members of the team, I'm gonna put this one to bed", Russo wrote in the tweet.

The Mortal Kombat franchise is one of the flagship names when it comes to violence and gore in video games. While the games themselves basked in gory glory, the film was rated PG-13. Oh yes indeed. Production is also ramping up nicely on Mortal Kombat, as this week also saw the first bit of casting done. The more passive rating threw a blockade at the franchise's infamous fatalities.

Are you excited about Mortal Kombat on the Big screen?

Indonesian actor and martial artist Joe Taslim have been cast in the movie as the Legendary "Sub-Zero".

Mortal Kombat is set to start shooting this year, with a 2021 release date likely. Joe is most known for its incredible fighting skills in movies like The Raid: Redemption and Netflix hit The night come for us (totally recommended the two if you like gore fighting scenes).
