MORTAL KOMBAT: Check Out Some New Behind-The-Scenes Stills Featuring Liu Kang, Scorpion, & More

Some new promotional stills for the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot have been released, giving us a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the making of the R-rated video game adaptation. Take a look...

Several sites have shared breakdowns of their 2019 visits to the Australian set of Mortal Kombat, and along with some intriguing new details about the R-rated video game reboot, we have a batch of new behind-the-scenes photos featuring several fan-favourite fighters.

In addition, executive producer E. Bennet Walsh addressed one aspect of the ultra-violent video games fans have arguably been most curious about: the Fatalities.

The recent trailer confirmed that we will definitely be seeing some visceral and bloody action, but fans of the game's more elaborate or sadistically brutal finishers might be disappointed by what the movie is allowed to depict.

“The problem with the fatalities, in general, is that MPAA is very different from the ESRB," Walks tells JoBlo. "In the game, they’re all CGI characters. They’re not real. This allows the game makers to raise the bar of the violence, right? I’m under the restrictions of the Motion Picture Association of America. I have to live inside those rules. We’re going to do as much as we can, I can promise you that.”

This sounds fine. After all, we don't need to see someone's skeleton ripped out through their mouth... right?

Check out the stills (via Discussing Film) below along with the trailer, and let us know what you think. You can also take a look at the recent motion character posters HERE.

In “Mortal Kombat,” MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld's Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family's safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?

Mortal Kombat is set for a simultaneous release in theaters and on HBO Max this April 12.
