The Mortal Kombat Legends animated feature film series is set to continue with a bizarre descent into neon soaked Hollywood babylon. Cage Match brings back Joel McHale as the action star turned world saver Johnny Cage for a story you'll have to see to believe! Read on for details:

Johnny will do his best Crockett when he rolls up the sleeves of a white, shoulder padded jacket to take on the Satanic forces lurking beneath 1980s Hollywood. He's on the path to stardom, but to get there he'll have to rescue iconic Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bueller's Day Off actress Jennifer Grey, who voices herself, going missing amidst a plot of intruge and secret societies.

Like third installment Snow Blind; the latest MK Legend is flipping the script on established canon, going in the opposite direction of Kano's Mad Max-like grim future, to tell a referential retro tale unlike anything we've seen before! IGN featured the first screenshot from the film and additional cast & plot details.

Robert Atkin Downes returns to the voice of Shinnok last heard in Battle of the Realms, with a hellacious cast including Grey DeLisle as Kia, Zehra Fazal as Jataaka, and Kelly Hu as Ashrah, with Dave B Mitchell as Raiden, Dusan Brown as Chuck Golden, Matt Young Kin as Concierge, Phil Lamarr as Brian Van Jones, Matthew Mercer as Director/Bully, Armen Taylor as Master Boyd, and the late Gilbert Gottfried as the surely legitimate and charming, David Doubldy.

It sounds like there'll be some skewering of Hollywood and Mortal Kombat lore, with a welcome spotlight for some of the demon breed of the Netherrealm. If you haven't already got the picture, here's a helpful synopsis to get you good and ready for the strange tale.

“Neon lights... Suits with shoulder pads... Jumping from explosions in slow motion... In 1980s Hollywood, action star Johnny Cage (Joel McHale) is looking to become an A-list actor. But when his costar, Jennifer (Jennifer Grey), goes missing from set, Johnny finds himself thrust into a world filled with shadows, danger, and deceit.

As he embarks on a bloody journey, Johnny quickly discovers the City of Angels has more than a few devils in its midst. He faces off against a sinister secret society plotting a nefarious scheme, but the brutal fight against the bloodthirsty warriors of the Netherrealm is just beginning.

Can Johnny, alongside other Kombat legends, save humanity...and, more importantly, his career?”
