Today marked the release of Mortal Kombat: Legacy on Blu-Ray! Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, the digital series saw success on YouTube earlier this year, with over 60 million views collectively. The success of this project has lead to New Line Cinema giving Tancharoen the green-light to begin production on a new Mortal Kombat film, set to be released in 2013. [Full story]
Included are all 9 episodes of the web series, which cover the different origin stories of several popular Mortal Kombat characters including Jax (Michael Jai White), Sonya (Jeri Ryan) and Johnny Cage (Matt Mullins). The series features Tancharoen's own unique spin on the MK universe, with some of the episodes harkening back to the original Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short from 2010. [More on Rebirth]
