Last Year's Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, a short sizzle reel made by Fame director Kevin Tancharoen rocked the web with it's name actors; Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan and it's dark and gritty take on the classic franchise. With the youtube release literally a day before Nether Realm was to announce their reboot of the Mortal Kombat game. He unknowingly created a massive amount of buzz not just amongst the public but amongst the higher ups of Warner Bros., the parent company of of Nether Realm.
The great buzz on this short got this new web series; Mortal Kombat: Legacy (watch it here) green-lit and on the eve of it's release Warner Premiere and Machinima had us down to meet some of the show's stars and creators. A small thrill for me being the huge genre fan, I got to sit down with star Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight, Black Dynamite) and chit chat about his sordid past with the Mortal Kombat Franchise, his favorite characters when he plays the games and some news on the new Black Dynamite animated series.
