It’s been a while since MK has graced our TV screens, in terms of film. Mortal Kombat (1995) was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, followed by the 1997 sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Mortal Kombat also saw the release of two television series: the animated Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm and the live-action Mortal Kombat: Konquest.
To think of it, the Machinima web series did a decent job of sorts. Much like what they did for Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist. That with the Mortal Kombat X as guide, maybe we have enough of an inspiration to pull off something epic.
