Early in 2014, student film maker Anthony Pellino showed us the first images from his short college film: Mortal Kombat: The Chosen One. Three semesters on, the 12 minute short is complete and ready for viewing:

Mortal Kombat: The Chosen One eschews the classic mythology of the games in a similar fashion to low budget webseries Mortal Kombat: Legacy, repurposing the plot to tell a grungy urban martial arts story. Set seven years before the tournament, a suited Raiden recruits reluctant vagabond Kuai Liang to test his chosen mortal warrior - Liu Kang.
