The first trailer for Underworld: Awakening at least has a naked Kate Beckinsale

Aug. 18, 2011by:

I checked out of the UNDERWORLD franchise somewhere about 15 minutes into the first film so forgive me if I'm not exactly up-to-date on the goings-on in the apparently continuing battle between vampires and lycans. I see Kate Beckinsale has returned, perhaps eager to turn the UNDERWORLD franchise into her own personal RESIDENT EVIL (hey, if Milla can do it, why can't Kate?).

Beckinsale's return is explained early on in the trailer as she wakes up (naked, I might add) after being cryogenically frozen for the past 12 years. She's not much of a morning person (don't come between Selene and her first cup of coffee...) and immediately sets off to...go...do something. She's screaming about Michael so I'm guessing she's looking for Michael. Also there are humans and the vampires are pissed and shouting "LYYYYCAAANS!!!"

The trailer, which will be in theaters this weekend with FRIGHT NIGHT, is available for your perusal below...

Not a shock

I stopped reading this article after the first sentence and went straight to the trailer... If you had a problem with the first movie, I'm really not concerned with anything you say about the trailer, because I like both this series and Resident Evil. I thought the trailer was hot, I'm digging the tone and the action, so I'm in.

The first 3 aren't great, landmark films but they were certainly entertaining. This one looks just as fun. I"m totally in.

I'm In!

Looks like simple, high-octane, supernatural fun. What's not to like. It has Kate Beckinsale in skin-tight latex wielding guns and killing everything. I'm gonna' bet this ends up being the worst of the series, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to have fun watching it. Enjoyed the first two, and I consider Rise Of The Lycans to be surprisingly good, so this one's a no-brainer for me.

Trailer from Comic-Con...

Great trailer and Michael was a [link] hybrid that she fell in love with basically. Half-naked Kate Beckinsale shooting and slicing guys up again...I'm there.

Not judging either Kate or Milla

It really is indicative of how much Hollywood sucks that the only way a fantastic, ass-kicking actress can get a genuine three-movie plus action franchise is to literally be banging the director (Milla married to Anderson, Beckinsale to Wiseman.) Thank God for Sigourney Weaver.

If you admittedly do not like the series than you shouldn't be 'reporting' on it. Or simply keep your opinion to yourself, and write an unbiased article.

Somethings wrong in the world when Underworld gets a 4th movie before Blade. Curse you Snipes, why couldn't you just pay your taxes.

Funny enough...

They've cut out a shitload of blood and gore from this trailer. The Comic-Con version had tons of blood and guts, especially the hallway scene.

I was wondering how much was going to change with the look of the flick since Wiseman isn't in the drivers seat. Pleasantly surprised they kept the same palette as the first two (the desaturated, high contrast look forks for this series. The Die Hard series? Not so much)

The only worry I have is the seemingly similar story construct and visuals as the Resident Evil Series. I hope thats not the case.

Personally I hope this will wrap the Kate Trilogy and theyll go back and do another prequel or two to connect everything up. I want to see the ancient war

Umm.....

I wasn't going to post anything, cause someone already did, but, I feel like I'm missing something. Didn't the end of the 2nd movie show her watching the sunrise, making it out that she wasn't a vampire anymore? Don't get me wrong, I love this series and Kate, and I will definitely go see this and probably love it. I was just wondering if anybody else knows something I don't know about how she becomes a vampire again

Not a bad trailer. The movie will obviously suffer by not having Bill Nighy or Michael Sheen in it, though.

I'm actually a fan of the first three movies. But how are they going to pick up after Underworld 2? They killed the original vampire and lycan, right? Therefore (according to their own story) all living vampires and lycans should have been reverted back to human.....whatever. I'll end up checking it out anyway. Damn Kate, DAMN YOU!

I was going to post something about that, but you beat me to it. Didn't the end of the 2nd movie have her watching the sunrise, showing that she was no longer a vampire? Like you said, I will watch this and I'll probably love it, I just hope they put some clarity to that little issue.

Point 1: How could they have possibly known that would be end result if they kill the first 2. Turned out to be a false legend.
Point 2: Think of her still being a vampire but a daywalker

Where's Michael?

Isn't it obvious? He's probably going to end up being the uber-werewolf that broke out with her. And I'm sure if Speedman is in the movie at all you won't see him until: a) Beckinsale is forced to kill him and he reverts to human form or b) he rediscovers his humanity and ends up saving her from some perilous situation but still dies. Which is pretty much the exact same plot as Resident Evil: Apocalypse.

That being said, I'm still down for some werewolf on vampire violence, especially

If Scott Speedman isn't in this, and it doesn't look like he will be accept maybe in the form of some CGI creature, then that fucking sucks. I still think it looks cool though. I'll see it in the theater if the reviews are half way good.

Gonna wait for the DVD I suppose. I enjoyed the first two, but was a HUGE fan of "Rise of the Lycans"!!! Was really hoping they'd go back and do more of that. I'm with Ocelot_Snake in wanting to see more of the ancient war. And Lucian was just a bad-ass character!

The first thing which came into my mind was Wolverine (orgins), i really dont know why. I am fan of Underworld movies, but this did look like direct to dvd.

I wouldn't say 'cheap'. Maybe just taken with less effort than the first two, and maybe less emphasis on actual story and more on action and the 3D stuff. Still looks entertaining though.

I didn't mean to say a woman can't lead an action movie (see Kill Bill but also Terminator and Alien!). I mean these comic latex suit flix. Most of them are just really bad, uninspired and overloaded with CGI...
