The New 'Mortal Kombat' Movie Will Be Rated R, Just as the Gods of Outworld Intended07/12/2019
Get ready to see some real violent fatalities in the new Mortal Kombat movie. Warner Bros. is taking another stab at adapting the popular fighting video game franchise by allowing a little more stabbing (and ripping and tearing and disemboweling) this time. While the previous Mortal Kombat feature films have stuck strictly to a PG-13, the new Mortal Kombat rating will be a hard R, according to screenwriter Greg Russo.
Russo confirmed that Warner Bros.’ upcoming feature adaptation of the massively successful fantasy fighter game will be rated R.
“Since it’s already been stated by other members of the team, I’m gonna put this one to bed,” Russo tweeted. “[Mortal Kombat] 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!!”
There are no official plot details yet, but assuming the film follows the basic premise of the games, Mortal Kombat will likely focus on a line-up of the some of the best fighters from our world going up against super-powered beings from other dimensions, all in the name of world domination.
Mortal Kombat is set to start shooting this year, with a 2021 release date likely.
