Mortal Kombat reboots with a violence level on 1,000, so much that the live-action movie will be Rated R.
The Mortal Combat team confirms making some movie adaptions to exhibit more vivid goor. This franchise revolves around voilence. The movies usually do a great job at finessing gutless slays, keeping it all PG, compared to the M rate video games that give the details raw with every jump, run and slash. But for the 2021 MTK reboot, things are kicking to get real Rated R.
Greg Russo, the movies screenwriter, took to twitter to confirm the squeal about the rating update,
“Since it’s already been stated by other members of the team, I’m gonna put this one to bed,” Russo said. “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!!!”
Well, that’s that, on that! Finished!
As a franchise that’s known as one that’s redefined american video games pairs with James Wan, a director known as The King of Modern Horror, the new rate restriction shouldn’t disturb the box office very much. We’ll wait and see like Greg Russo suggested. The film is to hit theaters March 5, 2021. Filmmakers recently announced that Joe Taslim (The Raid, The Night Comes for Us) will star in the film as Sub-Zero . No teasers or trailers have been released as of yet.
