‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2’ Trailer: Get Over Here!

Mortal Kombat Legacy 2

On September 26th, you’ll be able to binge-watch Mortal Kombat: Legacy II on Machinima, so make sure to have a hand harpoon-proof vest handy.

After 70 million views on their YouTube channel since its debut in 2011, the experiment in fan-fulfillment/passion project creation/free internet TV has now spawned a continuation of the story with Kevin Tancharoen back in the director’s chair. They’ve lost Michael Jai White, but they’ve gained the original Shang Tsung (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) from the 1995 movie.

Unfortunately, they’ve also added some gorgeous action but kept the terrible acting.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

If the kicks don’t get you, the flat line delivery and CGI blood will knock you out. Still, it’s free, so you get what you pay for. Some will find a worthy story to support their fandom here while others can just as easily change the browser tab without spending money or much time, and I’m sure that’s what Warners Digital and Machinima are banking on.

As it rolls out, the question it will continually raise will be whether it’s the future of fan service.
