Underworld Awakening Let Loose The Hunters

The trailer is out for Underworld Awakening and it looks awesome!  watch the trailer above.

This is set after Underworld Evolution. Looks like we will get to see human hunters enter the fight between the two clans and some hints that Michael might return as the abomination.

 

Plot:  "Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.

 

Underworld Awakening will hit theaters January 20, 2012.

What Would Underworld Four Be About?

underworld-rise-of-the-lycans.jpgThe rumors have stirred about a fourth Underworld film.  John Hlavin a writer for the Shield is tapped to write the next movie.  I have no strong feelings one way or the other about Halvin.  The question is, What Would Underworld Four Be About?

As a Prequel to Underworld

If Underworld four takes place before the events in the first two movies then I would love to see Selene’s embrace story.  We could see the height of the Lycan war as they are hunted by Vicktor and the supposed defeat of Lucian.  This would mean more Bill Nighy as Vicktor and Kate Beckinsale as Selene, a huge plus for me.

After Underworld: Evolution

Some are saying that Kate might not return, sad if true but then I would like to see a story taking place after Underworld: Evolution.  The remaining Lycan’s and Vampires have to work together to protect themselves against hunters.  The hunters could either be church backed or a secret government division either would be sufficiently threatened by vampires and werewolves.  The hunting could be due to the attention brought about from the war in Underworld 1 and Underworld 2 resulting in more people finding out about the existence of and having evidence for the existence of both vampires and werewolves.

What would you like the fourth Underworld to be about?

Review of: Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Review of:  Underworld: Rise of the Lycans Overall Rating: 9 Owner for some.

Watch The Trailer here in the P:S HQ

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is a great example of The Gothic Aesthetic with it’s gothic wardrobe, gothic architecture, gothic cinematography style, gothic visuals, and gothic storyline.  I loved this move and would watch it repeatedly, it is an owner for me.

Like many of the Underworld movies Rise of the Lycans also received a chilling welcome from many reviewers but I would attribute it to them not getting this movie.  First there are the norms who do not get the gothic culture and are reviled by it’s presence so they would hate this movie because of it’s nature.  Then there are those who are expecting this movie to be more like Underworld an action film first with vampires and werewolves in it.  This is more like Underworld: Evolution a horror film that has some action in it.

Bill Nighy portrayal of Victor was brilliant.  He is a cold, cruel man of strong beliefs , a mid-evil politician, a ruler, and yet he still has some heart when it came to a few subjects one of them his daughter.  Bill’s performance really conveyed the inner torment over the choices that his duty and beliefs drove him to make.  I was captivated at how he portrayed a nasty, evil character yet still got me to feel sad for his situation and empathetic at times.

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans tells the origin story of the centuries-old blood feud between the vampires and their slaves, the Lycans.  Around 1250 a young Lycan named Lucian falls in love with Sonja, the daughter of Viktor leader of the Vampires.  Lucian emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor, the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them.
