The upcoming Mortal Kombat movie from Warner Bros. is apparently going to feature the franchise’s trademark gruesome fatalities without anything held back. Actor Lewis Tan, who plays an unspecified character in the movie, told GameSpot sister site ComicBook that some of the fatality sequences that he saw on set made him sick to his stomach.
“Let me just say this, there were some days on set that I felt sick. I’m not kidding,” Tan said. “They did not… They did not hold back.”
Fatalities are Mortal Kombat’s trademark gruesome finishing sequences that showcase all manner of horrific things like ripped bones, broken spines, and bodies pulled apart in the most hideous ways. It would appear, based on Tan’s comments, that they will show up in the movie through practical effects, at least in part. Presumably CGI will also be used.
