I’m mystified by the continued existence of the Resident Evil and Underworld movies. The parade of sequels for each franchise seems, to me, to just be the same stuff presented over and over again. But good-looking women kicking ass is something that evidently crosses all sorts of boundaries.
So there’s an audience that loves them, and Swedish directors Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein are here to present Underworld: Awakening, the fourth film in the series and the return of Kate Beckinsale. She took a break from the third movie, which told an origin tale to fill in backstory leading up to the original 2003 film. But now Beckinsale is back as Seline, the leather-clad vampire who shoots things in both slo-mo and ultra-fast action. Check out the trailer below.
After being held in a coma-like state for fifteen years, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) learns that she has a fourteen-year-old vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter, Eve, and when she finds her, they must stop BioCom from creating super Lycans that will kill them all.
Underworld: Awakening opens on January 20, 2012.
