This weekend, Greg Russo confirmed that Mortal Kombat was officially being rebooted by Warner Bros. The writer for the film confirmed that the series would be moving to an R-Rating and will have fatalities for the first time ever on screen.
Production is currently underway right now in Australia, as Joe Taslim has been tapped to star as Sub-Zero. In the past, Warner used a PG-13 rating for previous MK films, but we expect a large 4DX experience to be included for its upcoming 2021 rollout to theaters.
Considering the insane amount of new fatalities, we saw in their Mortal Kombat 11 video game over the spring, many are hoping for the inclusion of animality and babality as well.
Look for Mortal Kombat to hit theaters on 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
