Geek update: MORTAL WOMBAT!!!

Holy cow. It is not often that we get to see cool things happen and then happen bigger, but here comes another fine example of awesome-for-geeks everywhere.

A little while back, Kevin Tancharoen got some really cool people together and did a teaser trailer for his idea, a re-imagining of the Mortal Kombat universe. Jeri Ryan and Michael Jai White helped him out with it, and soon there was an awesome internet video that drew a ton of views. It was basically his audition piece to get Warner Bros to let him play with the intellectual property.

Fast forward: they let him play. They're doing a webseries on YouTube, which will add up to about a feature length's worth of time.

They debuted Tuesday. As of today, 2 days later, they have over 3.5 million vies. IN TWO DAYS.

They'll be releasing a new episode every Tuesday. If you have 12 1/2 minutes, do yourself a favor and watch looks good so far, (excellent for a direct-to-web project) and I'm very much looking forward to where they go with it. Is it high art? A magnum opus? Hell no. But it sure is a fun new look at a classic franchise.

So, GET OVER HERE! and click the play button!


  1. When I first saw "Mortal Wombat" I was desperately hoping to see a new streetfighting video game franchise starring wombats.
