Fans have been eagerly awaiting updates on the possibility of more live-action adventures set in the world of 'Mortal Kombat,' the infamous video game series of the 90s. It all started last summer, when a bloody, hard-hitting short film landed on the Web from filmmaker Kevin Tancharoen, and starring Michael Jai White (of 'Black Dynamite' fame) and Jeri 'Seven of Nine' Ryan. Video game fans were happy to see a film adaptation that actually tried to match the tone and impact of its video game predecessor.

Well to all those who were hoping that the short was the start of the something more, you'll be happy to new that Tancharoen's gritty depiction of 'Mortal Kombat' will continue in a new web series called 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy' -- and we have the first trailer for it behind the jump.


'Mortal Kombat: Legacy' premieres on Machinima on April 12.
