It sounds like things are moving right along for the Mortal Kombat movie. While the film's release date is a bit nebulous due to the pandemic impacting the movie industry, it's clear that the project is coming together overall.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Mortal Kombat actor Lewis Tan spoke about the movie's status right now.
"Things are up in the air, that's for sure. I know that we're getting through post-production right now, and the studio is really happy with how it looks and I'm really happy with it, and the director is really happy with it. So, so far all things are firing on all cylinders and looking good, but who knows right now?
We have aa new editor that came on board, the editor of Iron Man, and he's done a few Marvel films and I think he's really added a cool touch to it. So I'm pretty excited about that."
Tan also took a moment to talk about the film's depiction of fatalities. The previous Mortal Kombat live-action movies were PG-13, so they didn't really allow for accurate on-screen representations of in-game fatalities. It seems the new R-rated movie is going to remedy that.
"Let me just say this, there were some days on set that I felt sick. I'm not kidding. They did not... They did not hold back."
