We\u2019ve been getting news for a while that the Mortal Kombat movie is currently undergoing production, and it\u2019s just been announced the past week that filming has officially wrapped for the film.\r\n\r\nThis comes from writer Greg Russo:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/WriterRusso\/status\/1205371647387041793\r\n\r\nWe don\u2019t have an official synopsis for the movie yet, but we do know that multiple characters will be appearing in the film from Sub-Zero to Liu Kang, and the first main baddie, Shang Tsung. It\u2019s also been said that this film\u2014unlike previous adaptations\u2014will be Rated R, and we\u2019ll be getting some gruesome fatalities that will be true to the spirit of the original game.\r\n\r\nThough video game adaptations are rarely good, I\u2019m hoping that a franchise like Mortal Kombat will manage to break the mold. If you ask me, they should just embrace the campy tone of the video game franchise and not take itself too seriously. If something should be topnotch though, it should definitely be the action. You can\u2019t expect a movie based on an action fighting game to not deliver in that aspect.\r\n\r\nDespite wrapping though, one big mystery for the film is still the identity of Lewis Tan\u2019s character. I\u2019m just going to go on a limb here and guess that he\u2019s Johnny Cage. I mean, Cage is one of the most popular characters in the franchise, so it doesn\u2019t make sense he would be absent from the first movie. My guess is that the studio wants to keep it quiet in fear of controversy, seeing that Cage is a white character and Tan is Asian.\r\n\r\nWith the movie wrapping already, I hope we can get an official teaser soon. Then again, the film is still set to come out in the middle of 2021, so it\u2019s likely we\u2019re going to have to wait a while. Maybe a trailer in the middle of 2020 would be a realistic guess.\r\n\r\nCatch Mortal Kombat when it hits theaters March 5, 2021.
