It seems that we will never be short of vampire movies these coming months, with the much-awaited Twilight: Breaking Dawn coming out very soon and 1985 horror-comedy Fright Night given the do-over. Another vamp flick that’s scurrying into cinemas will be Underworld: Awakening.
Yup. Selene is back. After sitting out Underworld: Evolution, Kate Beckinsale is donning back her catsuit to kick supernatural butt. Check out the trailer below:
The story this time around acts as both a sequel and perhaps a mini-reboot—Selene (Beckinsale) awakens 12 years in the future after being held captive in stasis, only to find that the tables have turned on the world stage. Now, it is humans who are the hunters, while vampires and their enemies Lycans (werewolves) are the prey. As one of the last of the now-legendary “death-dealers,” Selene’s return will shakeup this new world order. And of course, she needs to solve the mystery of what happened to her Lycan/Vamp hybrid lover, Michael.
Underworld: Awakening is the first film in the franchise to shoot in 3D. It is slated to open in theatres Jul 20, 2012.
