Get Over Here!!! First Trailer For MORTAL KOMBAT: LEGACY 2

Andrew Mack, Contributing Writer

Back in 2011, a series of nine webisodes were released under the title of Mortal Kombat Legacy. All origin stories, each episode (with a couple of two-parters thrown into the mix) presented an origin story of characters from the video game franchise.

The aim was to present to Warner Bros. the director's vision for a feature film. In the Fall of 2011, it seemed like everything was a go and director Kevin Tancharoen would no longer have to direct another Glee or Fame film to feed his family. Though there has not been a whole lot to report on a feature film since then, a new web series is set to begin.

The Mortal Kombat Legacy continues in Season 2 as Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Kenshi, and Ermac join the ranks. The rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors will unfold as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. The epic battle for Earthrealm has finally begun.

I hope that there will be story to bridge all the new episodes together instead of just a collection of individual stories like the first series. We will know soon. And for those of you keeping score at home fight choreographer Larnell Stovall (the upcoming Snitch, UniSol Day of Reckoning, and Undisputed III) has pitched in again to make the fighting as bad-ass as possible. 

Around the Internet:
  • Mehaillien Thundercross

    The original teaser/trailer that featured Jax/Scorpion/Baraka/Johnny Cage/Sonia got it right; the series that followed was kind of a let down. The original idea made it seem as if the goal was to bring the Mortal Kombat universe into a more 'real-world' setting, but what followed was SyFy cheese. Much like the original trailer/teaser, this looks good. Much like the original web-series, this could easily go bad quickly.

    I haven´t seen it yet, maybe I should, any trailer containing Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is never bad.
    Thanks Mr Mack.
