Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 To Be Unleashed On Sept. 26

The second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, one of the most successful web series to be based upon any video game ever, is almost upon us. Mortal Kombat: Legacy II will make its debut on Sept. 26, via Machinima's YouTube channel.

Once again, the series is being helmed by Kevin Tancharoen. The first Mortal Kombat: Legacy was borne from a short he created, which served as a proof of concept for a live action MK-reboot. It's not a stretch to say that it perhaps did more to revive interest in the Mortal Kombat that any of the actual games in recent years.

Though the highly successful, back to basics, most recent installment of the game was in production well before the first web series had hit the web, though that game's popularity was certainly bolstered by the show nonetheless.

According to the PR, the cast for season two will include Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Brian Tee (The Wolverine) and Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-O). And let's not forget Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, reprising the role of Shang Tsung, which he played in the original, big screen adaptation.

Now here's the wacky part: taking a cue from Netflix and "… the current hot trade of binge viewing, all 10 episodes will be released simultaneously."


AAAAAHHHHH!! SO EXCITED!!!! If you haven't seen season one, check it out on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/show/mortalkombatlegacy

wasn't into this web series but I need them to make this into a full movie:

I wanted so much to come from this. Okay that sentence looks weird but I'm leaving it. Suffice to say, I wanted a movie based off this short/trailer/whatever you want to call it. A dark, gritty MK while still keeping within the theme of the franchise. I remember seeing this and squealing in delight.
dynamite_state 19th-Sep-2013 10:08 am (UTC)
ikr? this was flawless.
neemah 19th-Sep-2013 05:28 am (UTC)
Who asked for this?
peachie_ego 19th-Sep-2013 05:36 am (UTC)
Yesssssss Season 1 was really good. I hope Michael Jai White returns...well I hope everyone from season 1 returns. :D

Your icon. My queen.

"Mortal Kombat" could have been a great franchise if it hadn't become self-parody after the second one.
psyquacker 19th-Sep-2013 06:01 am (UTC)
So happy they brought back the original Shang Tsung!

Now, go make a real movie. Not like the sequel though. That was pure horse shit.
brucelynn 19th-Sep-2013 07:32 am (UTC)
the sequel sucked but I had such a girl crush on Sindel
phallus 19th-Sep-2013 01:21 pm (UTC)
Both movies were awful, I need a reboot.
psyquacker 20th-Sep-2013 12:29 am (UTC)
The 2nd was a cheese fest. But the first is forever iconic.

I wish Tekken had a webseries because it would be a hot mess. Also I shipped Jun/Kazuya.
saintvlas22 19th-Sep-2013 06:18 am (UTC)
At first I was like 'oh, incest...' before I realized the son's name is Jin.

ONTD has got incest on my brain after that damn secrets post.
kawaiiairbender 19th-Sep-2013 06:25 am (UTC)
i would watch. I disliked Jun/Kazuya immensely. I thought Jun could do better. My preteen self was fond of hwoarang/xiaoyu/jin though
spassbremse123 19th-Sep-2013 07:04 am (UTC)
To me Tekken is all about Jin / Hwoarang... with their ongoing feud they should at least hatefuck once or twice.
brucelynn 19th-Sep-2013 07:34 am (UTC)
I had such a crush on Hwoarang back in the day
shineitonme 19th-Sep-2013 11:01 am (UTC)
Jin is such a douche but him at Hwoarang is such a YES!

Jin/Xiaoyu forever
ludmi_83 19th-Sep-2013 06:15 am (UTC)
Oh yessss finally!!!
andymoon 19th-Sep-2013 06:16 am (UTC)
Can we please discuss how much the ONTD iphone app SUCKS????

It's a complete disaster.
spassbremse123 19th-Sep-2013 07:03 am (UTC)
Deserved bad karma for using an iphone over android.
whysosadiddy 19th-Sep-2013 07:49 am (UTC)
The android one doesn't work for me either though :(

It loads like the 5 most recent stories and then after that it's all stories from when I first installed the app
magnifying 19th-Sep-2013 10:46 am (UTC)
A lot of people on here say that but I rarely have problems with it & I'm on it all the time. It's crashed a handful of times but once I reopen it it's fine. Oh and one time I opened it & all the posts at the top were from 2006. It was really weird. 
hypnology 19th-Sep-2013 01:10 pm (UTC)
I hate that you can't edit comments or get notifications of a reply on it. And when it doesn't load new posts
phallus 19th-Sep-2013 01:23 pm (UTC)
I've completely given up on it, the mobile site is way better - or maybe I've become used to it.
ohwutevernvm 19th-Sep-2013 03:20 pm (UTC)
that's precisely why I am back on my mac and FINALLY have a decent internet connection at the moment. I prefer this tbh.

NHF bad movie adaptions, but I loved the MK games when I was younger.
omgwtfbbqpewpew 19th-Sep-2013 07:03 am (UTC)
I can never watch that scene in Mortal Kombat Annihilation where the bad guy breaks one dude's neck. I first saw it when I was little and I was traumatised ever since.

ETA: It's quite unfortunate that we haven't been able to see Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa in more movies where he doesn't play some kind of Asian stereotype.
