New batch of images from “Underworld: Awakening”, the fourth entry in the “Underworld” franchise (but only the third one fronted by Kate Beckinsale). Nice to see that they’re moving forward in the timeline with this one, instead of sticking to the status quo or doing more silly “prequels”.
“Awakening” finds Selene waking up from a long coma to find that human forces have discovered the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, and that a war to eradicate both species are currently in progress. There’s also a little girl involved who may or may not be her daughter, and Michael is nowhere to be seen. It’s kinda like the PTA, but with more bloodshed.
Starring Kate Beckinsale, Sandrine Holt, Michael Ealy, Charles Dance, Theo James, India Eisley, Stephen Rea, Kris Holden-Ried and directed by the duo of Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein.
Taking on those pesky humans January 20, 2012.
