Kate Beckinsale is back and kicking butt in the new trailer for Underworld: Awakening
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
So another installment in the UNDERWORLD franchise is coming out in January, called UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING (formerly called UNDERWORLD: NEW DAWN). This one is directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein and from what I can gather, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is back in the game and has been held hostage by humans for who knows how long. When she breaks free from her “prison” , she wakes up to discover that the war between the vampires and lycans now involves the humans who are hunting both species. There may be more to the story but a story isn’t usually what fans are looking for in this series. UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING will open on January 20, 2012 and stars: Kate Beckinsale, Charles Dance, Michael Ealy, India Eisley and Stephen Rea. Check out the trailer below.
I don’t mind the UNDERWORLD franchise and thought they were fun films. I’m surprised to see Kate Beckinsale back in the lead, but she hasn’t really had any big breakout roles since the first so I suppose it’s not surprising that she would revisit an old friend.
