Since its release, it has become one of the most successful fighting game franchises of all time and has seen various sequels and spin-offs, including games, films, comic books, and a card game. Although its first film adaptation was released in 1995, more recently it has returned to the spotlight, with the newest release being the 2021 live-action film Mortal Kombat. Although fans were initially excited to hear that the film would remain faithful to its violent source material with an R rating, it was met with polarizing reviews, even inspiring a 1995 vs 2021 movie meme showdown on the internet.
