Hard R Rating For James Wan’s Mortal Kombat
I’m very excited to see that James Wan’s Mortal Kombat reboot has got a hard R rating and will also include some fatalities! The screenwriter Greg Russo confirms this in a tweet he made–see below.
The 90s Movies Don’t Hold Up
I don’t know if y’all remember the Mortal Kombat movies from the 90s or not, but–for the time–I really enjoyed them. Looking back and giving a rewatch, they do not hold up well at all!
Fatalities will be in the movie!
Seeing how the games got a fresh update with Mortal Kombat 10 & 11 with X-Ray fatalities, I feel it’s time to reboot these and see what modern times can do. I’m very excited about this, as well as my son. He’s a huge gamer and had me preorder both Mortal Kombat 10 & 11. I told him about this news and he was ecstatic. Since he’s 12, it’s awesome to see he actually likes the first 2 movies, so he definitely can’t wait for 2021 for the release of this. We both will definitely be at the nearest AMC to watch Mortal Kombat 2020!

Let me know y’all’s thoughts on Mortal Kombat’s receiving an R rating, as the original two were PG-13.
