Mortal Kombat Webseries Premiering Next Tuesday

The popular game-centered, online video channel, Machinima.com, will be debuting a brand new web series based on the Mortal Kombat video games. Rumored to be 8-10 episodes, the first episode of the new Mortal Kombat Webseries will debut on April 12th, following a 4-hour, live-stream broadcast celebrating the upcoming release of the new Mortal Kombat video game. During the event, various actors from the show and director Kevin Tancharoen will be playing the video game while talking about their new series. The Mortal Kombat Machinima event is scheduled to begin streaming at 12pm PST on April 12th, with the first episode debuting immediately after the festivities at 4pm PST. Call me nostalgic, but I'm actually excited about the series and the game.

Flashback to a year ago. A completely unknown film director by the name of Kevin Tancharoen decides to put together a 'trailer' to a 'new' Mortal Kombat film entitled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. Hoping to garner enough attention with this martial arts video to convince the big-wigs at Warner Brothers to actually produce the feature, he submits the trailer to all corners of the internets. Although surprisingly lacking in colorful ninja uniforms and over-the-top martial arts weapons, it creates a huge buzz with the many fans of the Mortal Kombat series with its polished production and unique spin on the Mortal Kombat universe.

Haven't seen it yet? Take a minute to catch up. We'll wait.

Flash forward to today. Unfortunately, the full length feature that the trailer promoted still remains to be produced. But all is not lost. What did come out of director Kevin Tancharoen's efforts is a brand new webseries that is backed by the hugely popular Machinima.com. Little is known about the series except that many of the actors from the original trailer will be reprising their roles and Mr. Tancharoen will remain behind the camera.

The launch of the webseries also comes one week before the launch of the latest and most anticipated game of the Mortal Kombat franchise. Set for release on April 19th, the game is hoping to reboot the Mortal Kombat series. It will be available for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. April is definitely looking like a good time to be a Mortal Kombat devotee. Personally, I can't wait to see how the game turns out. It's been far too long since I've seen Kitana's umm... fighting fans in action. Yeah... that's it.
