‘Mortal Kombat’ Movie Seeks To Push Gory Scenes ‘Right To The Limit’ If you get queasy at the sight of blood, you may want to sit out seeing the Mortal Kombat reboot when it hits the big screen. Director Simon McQuoid is assuring fans that the flick will stay true to the video game, taking the R-rating “right to the limit” with the gore. “Obviously, there’s a point where the film becomes unreleasable if you push it too far, and that would be a very unwise return on investment for the studio. But from day one it’s been, ‘Okay, we’re doing this and we’re going to do it properly,'” McQuoid told GamesRadar. If your stomach can take it, Mortal Kombat will be simultaneously released on April 16th in theatres and on HBO Max. Does the idea of a gory movie make you want to see it more or less?
