Mortal Kombat Movie Confirmed R-rated, Features Horrifying Fatalities
Through his Twitter account, the writer of Mortal Kombat movie Greg Russo has confirmed that the film will be R-rated in the US. This means that it is for people over 17 years old – those who are younger should be accompanied by their parents.
The reboot of Mortal Kombat will be R-rated (for those over 16 years old) and will feature one of the brand images of the video games, fatalities. The screenwriter says that the movie will have “Fatalities” and that they will finally be on the big screen, but he does not say which ones. We will have to “wait and see”.
However, Russo declined to reveal what fatalities will be in the Mortal Kombat Movie, delaying this revelation by the time the film opens.
The movie one will begin filming in Australia later this year, and already confirms the actor who will play Sub-Zero, one of the most charismatic characters of the saga. An alleged incomplete list of the cast suggests that it will be joined by Kano, Sonya Blade, Raiden and a new character named Cole Turner.
The director of Saw and Aquaman, James Wan, will be the producer of the movie, with Simon McQuoid in the director’s chair. The premiere is scheduled for March 5, 2021.
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
