It’s been confirmed that New Line Cinema will officially bring Mortal Kombat back to the big screen and it will be directed by none-other than MK savior Kevin Tancharoen and written by Oren Uziel. These are the two that brought us the awesome webisodes.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy is a web series created by Kevin Tancharoen that debuted on Machinima.com’s YouTube channel back in April of this year. If you have played the video game franchise to which the show is based then you already know it’s an adaptation of that universe and the characters within.
The show’s premise originated with director Kevin Tancharoen’s short film entitled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth [watch it below] which he eventually submitted to Warner Bros. WB declined to back a film but did give the go-ahead to shoot the web series. Mortal Kombat: Legacy tells the background stories of several characters from the franchise, it reveals their reasons for participating in the upcoming tenth Mortal Kombat tournament (based on the first game). So will all 9 episodes released that’s a wrap, for now. All the Mortal Kombat: Legacy episodes have posted here for your viewing.
We reported last month that the final episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy was delayed until Comic-con, well it has finally arrived. In the ninth episode in the series, Cyrax and Sektor are chosen to be the future of the Lin Kuei by the Grand Master, but Cyrax is less than enthusiastic about giving his life over to a cybernetic transformation that will erase his memories and turn him into the ultimate fighting machine. When he discovers that the cyborg he is fighting seems closely familiar, Sektor must keep Cyrax focused on destroying Hydro, and not himself or their future. Watch it below:
So there I was, waiting for my Mortal Kombat hook up to send me the last episode this week, it didn’t come. What did come was this disappointing news; Kevin Tancharoen announced on Twitter last weekend that the finale piece to his prequel Mortal Kombat: Legacy web-series would not be airing on YouTube on Monday at midnight as the previous eight had. Instead, the last webisode will be premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con, July 21-24th.
We have been showing each episode weekly here on CoF, a revitalized Mortal Kombat franchise which started online last year with the Rebirth trailer, featuring Jax and Sonya Blade. Warner Bros. didn’t want to back a feature film, so they gave the go to make a nine-episode web-series.
The Machinima YouTube Channel premiered the series on April 12 and has been gaining millions of views in the process. So now we wait 6 weeks for Episode 9, “Cyrax and Sektor”, and perhaps a big announcement from Warner Bros. regarding the franchise? Tancharoen did leave us with this image of Cyrax’s mask his Twitter and it looks awesome.
The eighth episode of Kevin Tancharoen’s Mortal Kombat: Legacy has been released and is part two of the Sub Zero and Scorpion saga.

The final episode is next week, so catch up: Episode 1 – Episode 2 – Episode 3 – Episode 4 (part 1) – Episode 5 (part 2) – Episode 6 – Episode 7 (part 1) (more…)
