It’s been a few years since we had a new Underworld flick (the last was Underworld: Rise of the Lycans – which was a prequel with Rhona Mitra taking over for Kate Beckinsale), but apparently someone out there still likes these movies, so here’s the first trailer for the latest installment, the imaginatively titled Underworld: Awakening.
If you’ve seen one Underworld film, you’ve basically seen them all – and this newest entry looks to continue that trend. All the important points are covered: everything shot with a hazy blue filter? Check. Kate Beckinsale in a skintight black bodysuit? Check. Gibberish about Death Dealers and Lycans? You betcha. Crazy The Matrix-esque action scenes? It’s in there.
We couldn’t even begin to guess how this film will perform at the box-office, but if you held a stake to our heart and forced us to offer a prediction, we’d say it will have a decent opening weekend and then head immediately to DVD. We’ll see if our crystal ball was right when Awakening hits theaters next January. Until then, enjoy ogling Beckinsale in her painted on catsuit in the trailer.
