Not a whole lot to see here, just Kate Beckinsale introducing and then narrating a new “Underworld: Awakening” featurette that takes you through the previous three movies. There are a couple of seconds of new footage, but is otherwise nothing you don’t already know if you’re a fan of the franchise. Basically, a recap of the previous three movies, with emphasis on Michael, who, ironically enough, seems to be missing from the fourth movie. Odd, that. But maybe they’re hiding a quickie cameo at the end, or perhaps something other than just, “Yeah, Michael, um, he’s sort of gone now, sorry.” That would royally suck.
But hey, it’s a crappy news day today (with Christmas on the horizon and all), and a little Kate Beckinsale never hurted no one. Unless, of course, you’re allergic to attractive British actresses dressed up in tight pleather. In which case, your life must really suck.
“Awakening” stars Kate Beckinsale, Sandrine Holt, Michael Ealy, Charles Dance, Theo James, India Eisley, Stephen Rea, Kris Holden-Ried, and is due out next year, January 20, 2012.
Until then, listen to the soothing sounds of Kate B.
