Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Yeah that is what I meant in one of my first posts describing the project. This is in the game continuity. It's designed to explore the motivations of the characters entering the tournament it's self.

why they didn't just use the same make up and mask from Rebirth is beyond me, this one looks a little Halloween-ish.

Looks like a Mordor Orc.

I liked the Rebirth version better.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Yeah me too. I'm wondering if some of these changes are being brought about by the people behind the MK franchise. You have to remember Rebirth was an unofficial thing, where this is official, so everything has to go through the MK people now.

Yeah, I'm sure that's true. It's a promo series for the game now, instead of being a fresh movie. I get that, but I'm still going to bitch about the bits I don't like!

Overall, it is still fun, though.

This article confirms that Legacy will be getting a DVD release as well as exposed to other outlets.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/17/ar...3&pagewanted=2

I'm hoping we get a score release. Episode II should be up online sometime soon.

Nice article. I liked this tidbit:

A few minutes later, Mr. Orlando reported by way of example that his team had just wrangled $12,000 worth of artificial snow out of a nearby production of “Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome.”
“They didn’t need it, so they’ll give it to us for the price of transporting it,” he said proudly. “We’ll spend more throwing it out than we did getting it.”

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Not bad for a web series. I'll probably keep watching.

Don't think I've heard about or thought about Mortal Kombat since '96. Between the web series and the new game it looks like someone, somewhere really wants to bring this IP back from the dead.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

There has been some minor effort to reboot the original movie for a while now. There was some talk several years ago but that went no where. The timing of Rebirth/Legacy with the rebooted Legacy game was perfect. I think if Legacy continues to be successful we could see a potential movie.

Episode II is online.

I loved the fight between Jax and Kano. Everything is shaping up nicely. Not even a third through and I already want this on DVD.

I know taking YouTube coments too seriously is the path to madness, but LoL at the comments of Jeri Ryan supposedly being too old and ugly.

Let's hope the critics look better at 42, her character won't be the butt of Nostalgia Critic jokes like Blade was from the mid 90s Mortal Kombat movie when she escaped from her cell and killed many henchmen while chained up, plus Legacy co-stars White and Shahlavi are in the same age range to Jeri - double standards much?
