Underworld 3 pics

07.26.2008
Is Rhona Mitra an acceptable substitute for Kate Beckinsale? After seeing her stomp ass in DOOMSDAY, I'll vote to the affirmative.

Mitra picks up the sword to play the female lead in the UNDERWORLD prequel RISE OF THE LYCANS, which takes us back in time to chronicle the clash between the vampire Death Dealers and the werewolves of the subtitle. Although Mitra steps in as proxy warrior Sonja to replace Beckinsale's Selene, most of the major players from the first movie return (Bill Nighy, Michael Sheen, Shane Brolly) while FX guy Patrick Tatopoulos takes over as director.

EW got their hands on a few new snaps from the flick, run your mouse all over Rhona to check 'em out!

Rhona should look like Beckinsale, considering Viktor saved Selene since she reminded him of his daughter Sonja.

Hot chicks, vamps, werewolves... count me in. By no means have these been well-written, but they are entertaining.

I'm love Rhona, but not sure if I want to see her replace Kate as a main character.

rhona mitra is smokin hot...if kate had to be replaced, this is a perfect choice. did u guys see her in da ali g movie? doomsday? the only better news than this would have been if they were both in it, and it involved a lesbo shower scene.

Hahaha

While I liked the first two, this movie is going to be a total crapfest. At first I thought that was Kate and I was surprised because I had heard she wasn't in it. But my main question is... Why did they get someone who looks just like her? At least embrace the fact that Kate Beckinsale isn't in it... And even the director is gone? This should be straight to dvd.

underworld: rise of the lycans

For a second, until I read the article, I thought that was actually Kate Beckinsale in the pic, but Rhona Mitra is a good choice for the prequel, even though she isn't really replacing Kate she's only taking the lead role/part of the film because Selene wasn't even born yet, hence the word "prequel" I need to see more though, I really like Kate Beckinsale and knowing she won't be in this film doesn't really attract my attention.

Rhona Mitra is a fine choice to replace Beckinsale... and to be honest, a piece of cardboard could replace Beckinsale when it comes to acting ability.

Whats more shocking is that Nighy and Sheen signed up for a THIRD of these movies. It didn't need a second let alone a third!

mitra's a fine replacement, but....

I really don't need to have even a GLIMPSE of a franchise that should have stopped at the first one (if even then).

Kate is definitely better IMO, but you cant hate on Rhona. in the end though, i didnt think there should have been a 3rd movie to begin with so...

I'm a little unhappy at how this movie is being handled. This isn't what I wanted at all. :(

Rhona Mitra is hot!

I think she would have made a great Lara Croft (as she was the model for the "Tomb Raider" promos awhile back). I think she is a "nice" successor to Kate Beckinsale, who, of course, was a very attractive vampire herself...
