Get Over Here and Check out the Trailer for 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy II'!


2011's Mortal Kombat: Legacy was a fun, gritty web series that deconstructed the MK mythos in a surprisingly intelligent way, helmed by the unlikely Kevin Tancharoen (whose credits include the Fame remake and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie), who made the transition from musicals to Mortal Kombat with fantastic results.

Well, with millions of hits on YouTube and a DVD release of MK: L selling well, it was only a matter of time before a second "season" of the web series would be produced, and the lovely folks at Machinima have put up a trailer for the forthcoming Season 2, which you can check out below.



I'll be honest, there's a lot of nerdy joy to be gleaned from Mortal Kombat: Legacy's second season if this trailer is any indicator.  Johnny Cage is now being played by Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), and Cary Tagawa will be reprising the role of Shang Tsung that he played way back when in Paul W.S. Andersen's MK movie.  Best of all, Mark Dacascos (Brotherhood of the Wolf, Double Dragon) will be portraying Liu Kang's fellow shaolin monk Kung Lao.  There's a disheartening lack of Jax (Michael Jai White) and Sonya Blade (Jeri Ryan), but the renewed focus on the Mortal Kombat tournament should keep the action--and the gore--flowing at a good clip.
