The upcoming Mortal Kombat movie reboot will be an R-rated picture.
What’s more, screenwriter Greg Russo confirmed that the series’ iconic Fatality finishing moves will be seen in the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, though Russo didn’t hint as to which of the many Fatalities will be filmed.
Russo revealed these details on Twitter, telling fans that he wanted to put rumours to bed.
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

Although the original Mortal Kombat movie is beloved, most of its action scenes were tame as a result of the PG-13 rating. Mortal Kombat is a violent, absurdly bloody series, so hopefully going for an R rating means – at the very least – the fights will be authentic to the games.
