Mortal Kombat Movie Will Be R-Rated, Has Fatalities

Fatality

Writer Greg Russo took to Twitter to announce the news that Simon McQuoid's film will not be family-friendly.

Get over here! The new Mortal Kombat movie is going to stay true to the source material. Unlike the cheesy techno-fest of '90s Mortal Kombat movies (and I say that with love), the new movie will have an R rating and feature some choice fatalities from the games.

Because let's be real Mortal Kombat games are awesome fight games. At the same time, that violence is a character within Mortal Kombat, a layer of style that no other video game on the planet can lay claim to.

We're not entirely sure we want to watch D'Vorah's infestation Fatality play out in live-action, but we'd certainly be down for some of the more entertaining moves like Erron Black's ricochet shot Fatal Blow making an appearance. The next Mortal Kombat movie will be R-rated and includes those lovely fatalities. The first Mortal Kombat game launched in 1992 and garnered acclaim and a loyal following, as well as controversy over its wildly graphic depictions of violence. And you know what that means: fatalities on the big screen.

There hasn't been much revealed so far about the upcoming film.

The Mortal Kombat movie is being produced by James Wan (Aquaman and Fast 7) and is due to begin shooting later this year. It just saw its first confirmed casting, with The Raid: Redemption's Joe Taslim signing on as Sub-Zero.
