Fatality

You may be still patiently waiting for the next Mortal Kombat 11 DLC fighter packs but there's plenty more coming from the world of Mortal Kombat - including yet another attempt at a movie. "MK WILL be R-Rated", Russo said, "and for the first time EVER, FATALITIES will FINALLY be on the big screen".

When the original movie arrived in theaters back in 1995, it was fairly well received.

In a post on Twitter, Mortal Kombat's screenwriter Greg Russo announced the news, reinforcing what other members of the film's team have been discussing online.
