Mortal Kombat: Lights, Camera, Action, Fight!

09/04/2011

Do you remember the fairly terrible Mortal Kombat movies? Wish you didn’t? Well it looks like there might be a brighter future for the live-action world of MK.

Those in the know might have caught a little short around the time of E3 last year called Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, starring Michael Jai White as Jax and Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade. The short painted a picture of just how potentially awesome a live-action MK could be, with appearances from Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Baraka, Reptile and Sub Zero as well, all set within a somewhat more realistic world (if that can really apply to anything Mortal Kombat).

Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, the short was put out there with the express idea of peaking the interest of the big wigs over at Warner Brothers and it looks like it paid off. Warner Bros Digital have teamed up with Machinima.com to release a 9 part live action web series set in the same world as Rebirth that looks like it could potentially be a half decent attempt at a live action MK. What’s more, if this has really got you excited there’s a trailer out for the new series that you can check out here.

If you haven’t seen MK: Rebirth it’s still floating around the internets but we’ve brought it to you coz were so nice:

Last but not least the first episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy premieres during Machinima.com’s four hour live stream of the upcoming game on April 12th. Let’s hope the series doesn’t dissapoint.

P.S. Mortal Kombat the game is out April 19th in North America and hits Europe 21st April.
