What’s happening with this new Mortal Kombat movie? Surely they wouldn’t sell out and go the PG-13 route, or something?
Today, the film’s most recent writer Greg Russo has confirmed that the new movie will not only have an R-rating, but will include the one thing the game is most famous for but which didn’t make the previous films – fatalities. Russo says on Twitter:
“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!!! ;)”
Mortal Kombat has always been the better of the beat ’em up adaptations. I wonder if this will continue the trend.
