Is the transition from games to movies deadly?
We finally have the first look at what is coming Mortal Kombat The movie restarts.
“Entertainment Weekly” (Entertainment Weekly) released many stills, this time showing some of the beloved characters in the bloody fighters on the big screen.
These include Hanzo Hasashi aka Scorpion played by Logan star Hiroyuki Sanada, also known as Yellow Ninja, and Joe Taslim’s “Bi -Han aka Sub-Zero” (also known as one of “Sub-Zeroes”), also known as “Blue Ninja”.
The film apparently started with a flashback to feudal Japan starring Scorpion and Subzero. We also watched Major Jackson (Jack) “Jax” Briggs of Mehcad Brooks, Sonya Blade (Kano) played by Jessica McNamee and Josh Lawson ). This is based on the new character Cole Young, who has not previously appeared in the game. He is played by Lewis Tan.
In an interview, director Simon McQuoid joked to EW that the movie “absolutely won’t be” rated PG-13. This may be because “Mortal Kombat” is a bloody series. The goal of the movie is R score.
McQuoid said: “From the context, this sentence seems sensational, not like this: the rules surrounding ratings are not what many people think.”
“This is blood, red, and understanding of ourselves. We have had a lot of discussions in order to achieve the right balance so that there is blood, blood and fatal injuries.” He paused and repeated what he had just said. “There is blood, blood, and death.”
The restart of Mortal Kombat will start on April 16, and will make its debut on Warner Bros’ HBO Max streaming service that day.
The news came only weeks after producer Todd Garner said the film was postponed indefinitely.
