“Mortal Kombat Legacy” Season 2 Trailer
The hit web series, Mortal kombat Legacy, based on Midway’s classic fighting video game series, is back for its second season.
While the first season focused on the origins of several iconic characters, season 2 promises to actually pit all of these characters against each other in the tournament that is Mortal Kombat.
Returning to the franchise is Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa as the villain Shang Tsung, which should have fans of the Paul W.S. Anderson film excited for this upcoming season.
Other characters featured in this trailer include: Scorpion, Ermac, Mileena, Kitana, Liu Kang, Raiden, Kenshi, Johnny Cage, Stryker, Sub-Zero and Kung Lao.
No release date has been announced, but it is Koming Soon.
Kast Photo From “Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2”
Machinima series Mortal Kombat: Legacy will return this February 17. To get fans excited, director Kevin Tancharoen decided to release a photo of the kast — er, I mean cast. It includes:
Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee) as the warlord adviser Kuai Liang, Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) as Johnny Cage, Brian Tee (The Wolverine) as Shaolin Monk Liu Kang, Mark Dacascos (Cradle 2 the Grave) as Kung Lao, Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-0) as Scorpion, and Cary Tagawa as sorcerer Shang Tsung, a role he also played for the first Mortal Kombat film.
So what can you expect from this season?
“In the second season the saga continues as Liu Kang and Ermac join the ranks of fighters introduced in the first season of the web series including Kenshi, Kung Lao, Kuai Lang, Stryker, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage, Scorpion and Sub Zero. This new season will uncover the rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. The epic battle for Earthrealm has finally begun!”

“Red vs. Blue” Season 10 Red Band Trailer
In a pretty remarkable feat to me, the red band trailer for season 10 of the hit animated action-comedy web series, Red vs. Blue, premiered exclusively for Entertainment Weekly. In another surprising bit of news is Elijah Wood—most famous for his role of Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films—joined in on the 10th season to voice the villainous A.I program, Sigma.
The trailer is only red banded due to the language of the music it’s played to, but as for the trailer itself, more of the over-the-top action that began a couple seasons back is on display and it looks bloody awesome. Burnie Burns and co. at Rooster Teeth are really pulling out all the stops for the series’ amazing fun at 10 seasons, and hints that many of the series’ plots and sub-plots will be wrapped up.

Looks like Tom Hanks is keeping himself even busier thanks to a special web project with Yahoo! The company’s vice president Erin McPherson spilled the online beans about Electric City, Yahoo!’s first original scripted web series.
It will be an animated project with a futuristic feel that’s actually straight from the brains of Mr. Hanks.

It looks as if Activision is trying to give gamers more of an incentive to join their Elite Subscription plan.
Elite is a type of social networking service centered on the Call of Duty games which will allow gamers to not only track their stats and host online competitions, but also share user generated content. Activision’s goal with the subscription seems to be keeping longer interest in its FSP franchise.
In hopes to sweeten the deal, the Guardian reported that Activision will also provide some type of special web TV series.
Activision Publishing Chief Executive Eric Hirshberg told the Guardian:
“We have engaged some top Hollywood talent to create linear video content that will be exclusive to Elite members. That content is inspired by Call of Duty.”
Whether this series is going to be animated or live-action is still up in the air.
“It’s not clear whether the content will be animated or live-action, though the mention of Hollywood talent suggests the latter. When questioned on the specifics of the offering, Hirshberg said: ‘We’re not going to give much more detail until we have something to show. That’ll be later in the year.’
Call me crazy, but a web series seems kind of odd for the Call of Duty games. True there’s a narrative in the games, but I always imagined that its main appeal was really just the multiplayer.
No word on an exact date, but the Elite Subscription platform is set for a fall release. And although some features will be free to most Call of Duty players, the rest of it will require a monthly subscription.
So what does a smiling Michael Jai White, a Scorpion in full costume garb, and an innocent snowman viewing someone’s ripped out spine have in common?
They’re all pictures from the set of the new Mortal Kombat web series.
Mortal Kombat web series director Kevin Tancharoen has been posting some pictures on set of the upcoming production.
Check some of them out.
Hmm, Scorpion is too far away in that pic. Geez what a tease.
