Mortal Kombat: Legacy Web Series Episode 1 (of 9)

Well that was fast. And more than a little bad PR move on the part of Warner Bros. and Machinama, the people bringing you Kevin Tancharoen’s 9-installment “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” original web series, I have to say. The trailer was out just yesterday, and now the first installment is online. Wait, no allowing the fans to wallow in anticipation? No build-up to the launch? Oh well.

When Jax realizes time is of the essence to save Sonya, a fellow lieutenant in the Outworld Investigation Agency, from Kano’s deadly hand, he holds nothing back in this action-packed, two-on-one battle to keep a shipment of stolen Robotic Defense Program material out of Kano’s hands. But can Jax and Sonya do it? Kano is a ruthless, evil leader of the “Black Dragon” international crime organization, and anyone who’s tried to take him down has never lived to tell about it!

Part 1 features Jax (Michael Jai White), Striker (Tamoh Pennikett), Sonya Blade (Jeri Ryan) and Kano (Darren Shahlavi) doing their thing in one of those smoky, action-ready factory/warehouses. Check it out below.
