I fell asleep in the movie theater while watching the first Underworld film. It was a point in my life when I was working an overnight shift. Friday and Saturdays were my nights off, and I often attempted to get back to a normal sleeping schedule for the weekend, which rarely worked. I have a feeling that I still wouldn’t have enjoyed the film even if I had remained awake for the entire thing. I never gave it a second chance. I never saw the sequel. But I did see the trailer for the sequel, and I think thats all I really needed to see.
Patrick Tatopoulos‘ Underworld prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans doesn’t look any better. Oh, and did I mention that before this, the director was a costume designer and special effects makeup artist? But I know there are many people who enjoyed the first two movies, who are interested to see the trailer for the third film. Heck, enough people had to see these films to warrant a trilogy, right? You can watch the trailer below, and please explain to me why I am missing out.
Official Plot Synopsis: The prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian (Michael Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Bill Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Rhona Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom.
Watch the trailer in High Definition on Apple. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans hits theaters on January 23rd 2009.

People have been obsessed with numbers since the beginning of time. The number three for example is engrained in everything from a joke, to a story, to life. Dramatists say that the number is just part of how the human brain functions. It’s how we structure our thoughts, in three acts – a beginning, middle, and end. Even the Bible has a number obsession.
