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.

Love the Underworld movies, but this article said Rhona Mitra was taking over for Kate Beckinsale in the prequel. It was a totally different character (Mitra played the daughter that Beckinsale's character resembled... which is how she came to be). Just clarifying because I can't stand when they change lead actors in a movie series & this article made it sound like that's what happened... it did not. Merry Christmas!!
"Where is Michael?!!" ... XLNT Teaser! Can't wait for another Underworld movie that I'll watch an untold number of times! ;•)
I am not in the habit of wishing my life away however I wish it was January 2012 now!!!
The person who wrote this article "Mike Bracken" sounds bitter! Sounds like a hater to me! I like the Underworld series...no they’re not doing anything NEW but it's entertaining...Hollywood hasn't turned out a great, got see movie in decades. Tell you what Mr. Bracken you write a script for Underworld and let's see how great you do!
I will be there opening day but I will also buy the movie on dvd to add to the collection. Everyone is a fan of Superheros in the movies but yah do wish the Villians wouldn't be killed off because its just a matter of opinion whos bad...I HOPE MICHAEL COMES BACK SOMEHOW....
I THINK THIS MOVIE LOOK GOOD, I CAN NOT WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT. I THOUGHT ALL 3 UNDERWORLDS WERE GOOD.
I HOPE THEY COME OUT WITH ANOTHER ONE JUST TO PISS OFF THOSE OTHER PEOPLE.
Kate Beckinsale in a skintight black bodysuit.....that's all I needed to read!
I love the series...can't wait to see it!
Head straight to DVD right after opening?? is this Guy for real? I mean the movie will not be breaking any records or getting or Oscars but damn.. That was just rude.
Fandango, looks like you need to get new writers, it isn't a good idea to keep someone that annoys so many of your users, could cause for them to leave the site.
Underworld in my mind is one of the best vampire movies out, minus Queen of the Damn. And I like all the others on here think Twlight was as lame as lame could have get and so far from what the real vampire world is really like.
Can't wait to see Underworld 4, even though I couldn't see the trailer because of the error message, "Sorry but this video is no longer available."
Underworld is litterally one of my favorite series. It has an excellent plot and great actors (Kate and Michael Sheen being my two favorites). This dude is obviously not very bright and ignorant of certain fandoms. ANYWHO. Not going to lie, I kind of hoped it would be another prequel about Kraven going to kill Lucian, Lucian going into hiding, and all that jazz. However, a sequel is just as good! I'm just one of those people who loves going back in time and learning new things and getting more in-depth information (which is probably why I liked Rise of the Lycans so much). Can't wait to see this! :D
"....but apparently someone out there still likes these movies"...
YES and apparently I am one of them! I can't wait to see the next one!
So tired of seeing the Twilight haters writing here. Twilight is still good in it's own right. That being Said, the said writer of this article should be fired. As he wasn't holding an objective point of view, which is what a critic should do. Present the facts, discuss it, then say "ye/nay" and leave it at that. Allow the audience to judge it. This writer is clearly an ass...I could write a better review then he can!
Personally I loved this franchise, and I think this movie will be right up there with the first 2 movies. There's been a big movement in Hollywood for Vampire/zombie/werewolf/pirates, this movie will make money!!
This series is one of my favorites! I can't believe the person who wrote this article. I agree with the person who said they must be team Edward, I guess they like to play with sparkles and emotionless girls. I can't wait to see this "Underworld," it looks like the best one yet!
I love Underworld! even though they should not have killed Lucian!
The Author of this story needs to go kill himself. The Underworld sequel and the prequel is hot. Kate Beckinsale is awsome. If this was a male dominating the scene, this movie would be considered so much more. But no it's a female paving the way and the author has to try and down play it. Why is it when the chic is in distress (Twilight) it has to be a hit maker; but when the woman is the hero, It's not worth looking at. STOP HATTIN!!!
Love Underworld's 1 and 2. neither impressed or disappointed with the prequel I hope this is a well done movie. It is often hard to keep a series going at the point of a 4th movie. I don't really see why this shouldn't do well but with it's early in the year release it may not be a huge blockbuster but I am sure it will at least make them a profit of decent proportions. I'll go see it.
It's kind of like Resident Evil; I will watch it just because she is smoking hot....
WOOHOO! It's about time. Can't wait to see it!
I'm a huge fan of the series but can't help feeling the plots un-original
Are you one of Bill Maher's writers, or did you get fired from the Huffington Post?
Last time I checked, Bracken was green, leafy vegetable fern matter.. Did you change your name legally and drop the "C"?
Outstanding!!! One of the best franchises ever; and twilight is bloody lame.
LOVE IT AND ABOUT TIME AND WHO WROTE THIS IS AN *** HOLE UNDERWORLD FRANCHISE ARE GREAT BETTER THAN BLADE AND I HOPE THEY MAKE 10 MORE AND IF YOU DO NOT LIKE DO NOT GO AND SEE IT KEEP YOUR OPINION WHERE THE SUN DO NOT SHINE IDOIT CIRTICS ONLY WANT US TO SEE WHAT THEY LIKE.
I'm game! I hope Len Wiseman directed it!
