What do you think about Mortal Kombat's new film going for an R-rating?

Screenwriter Greg Russo has confirmed that the forthcoming Mortal Kombat movie will be "R-rated" and will feature the game's signature "fatalities" for the very first time.

Technically speaking, the first Mortal Kombat movie also featured some non-gory fatalities.

Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation maintained PG-13 ratings, keeping violence to a relative minimum compared to the video games.

James Wan is set to handle the films production and director of the movie will be Simon McQuoid.

Taking to Twitter, Russo, who has penned the screenplay for 2021's Mortal Kombat movie as well as the forthcoming Resident Evil reboot, has put to rest any fears that the rebooted instalment would be taking cues from the tamer Mortal Kombat adaptations.
