Must Watch: First Trailer for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
They're making another Underworld movie?! That was my first reaction, too. Here it is - the first trailer for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans starring Rhona Mitra, Michael Sheen, and Bill Nighy for a third time. For this sequel they've gone back in time, to tell the origin of the centuries-old feud between the the race of aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers, and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. This looks like the most common and un-entertaining cinematic story I've seen in a while, reminiscent of the Alien vs Predator movies (yes, both of them). This will find an audience and some people may enjoy it, but it looks a bit too excessive for even my own tastes. Take a look for yourself - only if you are one hell of an Underworld fan.
