Kate Beckinsale continues her assault on your lustful hearts with a new theatrical trailer for “Underworld: Awakening”, the fourth in the ongoing horror/action franchise. Oh, let’s face it, like the “Resident Evil” movies, the “Underworld” films stopped being “horror” after the first one. It’s just an action franchise now. Nevertheless, Beckinsale is back as Selene after taking a break from the series with the third one (fellow Brit Rhona Mitra filled in nicely in that one), and just in time too, because from the looks of things, the world definitely needs a savior … in skintight pleather bodysuit, no less. Props to directors Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein, who apparently spent much of the production figuring out all kinds of ways to capture Ms. Beckinsale in the most, er, flattering of angles.

The vampire warrioress Selene, 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.

Starring Kate Beckinsale, Sandrine Holt, Michael Ealy, Charles Dance, Theo James, India Eisley, Stephen Rea, Kris Holden-Ried and directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein.

Slayin’ hearts and werewolves January 20, 2012.
