Mortal Kombat: Actor Lewis Tan On The Film’s Handling Of Fatalities

We finally get a look at the long-awaited and long-overdue Mortal Kombat reboot. Entertainment Weekly has some exclusive images from the upcoming film which you can check out here.

The film hopes to do its best to deliver a proper adaptation of one of the most popular and best-selling video game franchises of all-time. Actor and martial artist Lewis Tan, who plays a new character in the film named Cole discussed how the film dealt with what is perhaps the most famous aspect of the franchise, fatalities.

“There are some crazy fatalities,. We’ve picked a couple of iconic ones. There’s a lot of really cool signature moves that you’ll see, a lot of Easter eggs that we snuck into the film, but there are some really badass fatalities that I can’t wait to see on the big screen. They’re brutal, man. They, they don’t hold back.”

Lewis continued saying director Simon McQuiod had to be careful in order not to exceed an R-rating.

“[McQuoid] didn’t want to get into NC-17 territory. It’s amazing how quickly you can get there. It doesn’t take much.” At least, not for a Mortal Kombat movie.

This will be the first time fatalities will be shown in a Mortal Kombat film. As they were absent from the atrocious film adaptations of the 1990s. Speaking of those films, wow, they were just awful. Fans have waited far too long to receive a film worthy of the video game. And from what I’ve seen today, it looks like they just might get it come April.
