Could it be that “New Dawn” sounds a little too close to “Breaking Dawn”, the last installment of the “Twilight” saga? Perhaps. At any rate, “Underworld 4” now sports the subtitle “Awakening”, which hints at the forthcoming sequel’s wonky little plotline. The film takes place 15 years after the events in “Underworld: Evolution”, which finds our sexy heroine Selene awakening from a coma to discover that she has a half-Lycan, half-vampire daughter. Oh, the drama!
“Underworld 4: Awakening”, which stars Kate Beckinsale, Michael Ealy, India Eisley, Robert Lawrenson, and Sandrine Holt, sinks its teeth into movie-goers on January 20th, 2012. Considering January is the month that most studios empty their cinematic bowels into the public’s collective wallet, I’m not getting my hopes up. Below you’ll find another shot of Beckinsale holding a pair of hand cannons while looking deliciously vampiric.
