Check out a new, extended minute-long TV spot for the Kate Beckinsale-fronted “Underworld: Awakening”. It’s ironic that the “Underworld” franchise has become Beckinsale’s signature film career. I don’t think she quite imagined she’d be most known for fighting werewolves back when she was in the UK starring in Kenneth Branagh’s Shakespeare movies and the like. We’re definitely better off for it, though. Who needs Shakespeare when you have Kate Beckinsale in skin-tight pleather?
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, Nissa, and when she finds her, they must stop BioCom from creating super Lycans that will kill them all.
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.
Kate struts her stuff again January 20, 2012.
