Mortal Kombat movie gets R-rating, features fatalities

Sub-Zero

Greg Russo, who serves as screenwriter for the new "Mortal Kombat" movie, confirmed the rating on his twitter on Friday morning.

Now here is something really cool for all Mortal Kombat fans out there.

"Since it's already been stated by other members of the team, I'm gonna put this one to bed", Russo tweeted. Earlier today, the writer for the new Mortal Kombat movie announced that the upcoming film will be rated R, and we expect the filmmakers will use every inch of that rating.

Mortal Kombat is widely known for its gruesome, overly graphic and often laughably ridiculous finishing moves. The plot remains a mystery, but it can be presumed that the movie could cover the first tournament - much like the first film. It had more realistic action, gore, and fatalities. What fatalities would you like to see on the big screen?

The Mortal Kombat movie reboot is coming March 5, 2021, and is the directing debut of "commercial director" Simon McQuoid - although Aquaman and Furious 7 director James Wan will be serving as producer.

There's no confirmation yet on what Fatalities will be featured in the Mortal Kombat movie, but it's not as if the producers of the film will be stuck for choice. TheWrap reported that "The Raid: Redemption" star Joe Taslim is lined up to play Sub-Zero in the film, which is set to go into production in South Australia later this year.
