New Mortal Kombat: Legacy clip is curiously absent of anything resembling Mortal Kombat

Seems like it was only yesterday when we first heard that MORTAL KOMBAT: LEGACY, a new iteration of the popular fighting game from MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH director Kevin Tancharoen, would be getting made into a 10-part live action web series. Yet, here we are with the premiere just around the corner, and now our first peek at a brand new clip from the re-imagined adaptation. Toasty!

But alas, while the emphasis on this project is for a more "realistic" take on the Mortal Kombat material, it's a bit odd to see that this particular clip was the one chosen to promote the series, as it showcases literally nothing Mortal Kombat-ish. Instead, we're shown a generic fight sequence between Jax and Kano that looks like it could've come from a myriad of DTV action films. C'mon, guys, what gives?

MORTAL KOMBAT: LEGACY - starring Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan, and Darren Shahlavi - premieres online at Machinima.com on April 12th.

Extra Tidbit: What's your take on the "web series" as a means of exhibition? Good way to expose little known talent? Or just more internet white noise... the equivalent of straight-to-video releases?
