The first three episodes of Kevin Tancharoen‘s web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy, have focused on Earthlings Sonja Blade (Jeri Ryan), Stryker (Tahmoh Penikett), Jax (Michael Jai White) and Johnny Cage (Matt Mullins). For the fourth installment, the series leaves our planet behind for the land of Edenia, which has been taken over by the sinister Outworld empire. The new episode, titled “Kitana & Mileena (Part 1)” follows the origin of the Edenian “sisters,” portrayed here by Samantha Tjhia and Jolene Tran. Aleks Paunovic plays their “father” Shao Khan, and Beatrice Ilg is Kitana’s mother. Watch it after the jump.

Tuesday marked the nearly one year-in-the-making premiere of a brand new Mortal Kombat online web series called Mortal Kombat: Legacy. The series is co-written and directed by Kevin Tancharoen who directed Fame as well as a 2010 viral video that spawned this series. It follows Sonja Blade (Jeri Ryan), Stryker (Tahmoh Penikett) and Jax (Michael Jai White) and they try and stop an evil crime ring run by Kano (Darren Shahlavi). At least, that’s what happens in the first 10 minutes. Episode two will be out next week with several more episodes coming after that. Check out the first episode after the jump and let us know what you think. Read More »
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 »
