The first episode from the much hyped Mortal Kombat web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy is now online.

This Mortal Kombat reimagining first appeared as a viral short in summer 2010. The response was so good that Warner Bros. snapped it up for a web series.

Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, Mortal Kombat: Legacy stars Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade, 300's Darren Shahlavi as Kano and Michael Jai White as Jax.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy is a series of nine live-action shorts that explore the motivations behind characters participating in the Mortal Kombat tournament.
