    I cant wait to see Rise of the Lycans, I have been a vampire fan all of my life, I have seen almost every Vamp movie availible but Underworld blew all others away, its storyline was amazing, Underworld 2 answered questions about the first movie that I tought it was as good or better.

    I expect Rise of the Lycans will live up to my expectations.

    Ok. I liked both Underworld movies, but… I expected the sequel, not the prequel. I’m a bit dissapointed. I want to see the continuation of the story, not their implementation of the known story given in the first two movies.

    Also, when I like movie I get sort of connected with main characters, so I don’t like replacements. What I think the situation here is that the main character(s) refused to appear in the new Underworld movie, so they decided to completely change the approach (and make prequel instead of sequel) in order to avoid any drastic changes. I think, almost everyone (if not everyone, but myself for sure) would never like to see any other actress in the role of Selena except for Kate Beckinsale.

    There is more to say, but to make it short, I am absolutely sure I won’t like this one as the first two.

      The movies are based on the books,, so the third book was already a prequel,, not a denied part… Although i do believe they go back and forth in the book a little bit,,, but mostly the back in the day story

    The purpose of this movie, Is the writers felt they had more of the orgins that they felt they needed to explain. Selene isn’t being replaced. She’s not starring in this at all due to the fact that her character is not required in this film. The same can be said for Michael. But you are correct, I would eventually like to see a sequel.
