It’s got violence, it’s got blood and it was the first fighting game you tried playing in real life only to get suspended from school (guilty). Now the world of kicks, punches and fatalities we know as Mortal Kombat is almost here for the world to enjoy in the live-action Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series. A gritty, real-world approach to the fun but completely preposterous, fantastical fighting game. It started out as a fan short that garnered over 10 million views worldwide and now it’s one of the most anticipated series to date.
Director Kevin Tancharoen has been doing a lot of updating of his Twitter the last few days, offering us a hand full of new photos and sneak peaks at fan favorite characters. While the first episode is only days away ( April 12th on Machinima.), we’re uncertain when the likes of Baraka, Raiden, Sub-Zero and Scorpion will make their appearances. I kinda ruined it in the title picture above, but HIT THE JUMP for a closer look at these grounded-in-reality versions.
