The film ‘Mortal Kombat’ released back in 1995 is still the highest grossing film based off a video game.
Mortal Kombat X is certainly ready for Easter with their incredibly subtle Easter egg when Quan Chi is shown holding the head of a three eyed monster. Those of you with good enough memories will realise that this is a boss found in ‘Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance’.
