You might think I sound crazy, but I know I’m not the only one who gets chills when they think about the first time they saw the Mortal Kombat movie. The movie itself is largely disappointing, but after playing the games obsessively at local arcades – lining up quarters, practicing fatalities, etc. – finally sitting down in the theater and hearing the initial scream of “MORTAL KOMBAT,” over the New Line logo, followed by The Immortals techno beats, was a very exciting moment. Unfortunately, it was a little too exciting and there was no way the film could ever live up to it. Why am telling you this? Because anytime there’s a new Mortal Kombat property, I secretly hope that it’ll match the energy of those 20 seconds of pre-credit perfection.

The next chance at that kind of immortality is Mortal Kombat: Legacy, an upcoming live action web series by Kevin Tancharoen that premieres April 12 on Machinima.com, starring Jeri Ryan and Michael Jai White. You can check out the first official clip (as well as the clip I mentioned, just for the hell of it) after the jump. Read More »
