I found a quicker way to watch the trailer for anyone who didn't want to skip through the video on the other site. It's right under the episode here.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Episode one is now the most viewed video on Youtube. Saw an article claiming that earlier today.

Why not just put this out as a direct to DVD movie? I'd buy it

They want people to actually watch it. I expect it will be released on DVD. Putting it online ensures a lot more people will view it as my post above would attest.

Do we know if there's any chance of this becoming a theatrical movie or TV series? I have no problems with this as a web series, I just think it would be cool if it expanded into a bigger medium.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

I believe that the original short film trailer was meant to be a pitch for a movie. Kevin and company settled for a web series. With the new game out I wouldn't be surprised if there was a new film in development. Everyone wants Kevin to direct and write a new film.

I shutter when I think of TNT's short lived, Mortal Kombat: Konquest which focused on Kung Lao. Well in hindsight it wasn't THAT bad, not as bad as MK II Armageddon.

Not what I was looking for but will wait for episode II where Sub-Zero fights Scorpion. That'll hopefully be more epic than this.

^ I'm guessing you are more interested in the action and fighting rather than the story and characters?

Story and characters are fine and so is the action. I was more.. expecting hand-to-hand combat kinda thing rather than gunfights and a very badly aged 7 of 9.

Jeri didn't look aged at all to me. As for the gun fight sequences Kano and Jax did use a bit of hand to hand martial arts at the end before the EMP explosion thingy went off. I expect that we'll see more and more martial arts usage in future episodes.

First Amy Adams is ugly and now Jeri Ryan is very badly aged?

I must say Jeri sure does flex well for a fortysomething.

I liked as cheesy B-movie escapism - Mike, Jeri, and that guy playing Kanos were great, while that guy from NuBSG was terrible, with the action scenes and effects competent for a web series if a bit cheesy.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

In case this hasn't been mentioned, and in case there's any lingering confusion, Legacy is NOT an expanded version of Tancheron's Rebirth short, although that was certainly the 'genesis' of sorts for his being involved with the project. Unlike Rebirth, which was grounded almost completely in reality and represented a 'Batman Begins'-esque take on the MK franchise, Legacy is firmly set within the same universe, tonally, as the games.

For some great insight into the series and what you can expect, check out this video interview from IGN.

hmm, a bit weird it's not a continuation of the original short, considering it felt like a pilot for this series and even has the same actors, but maybe they had to take a few liberties with the more unrealistic content once they expanded their story while still trying to keep it realistic in tone.
