When a franchise reaches its fourth movie as with the action-packed Underworld: Awakening sequel, there's obviously a hardcore fanbase looking for every update they can. And that's why we're directing your attention to the new poster (via ComingSoon) featuring Kate Beckinsale returning as vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species. More sparks fly across the foreground, and might be another movie poster trend worth looking into. See it below!
Here's new poster for Måns Mårlind & Björn Stein's Underworld: Awakening, high res on ComingSoon:
Selene escapes imprisonment to find herself in a new world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.
Underworld Awakening was co-directed by Swedish filmmakers Måns Mårlind & Björn Stein, of only the thriller Shelter previously, along with some television work. The screenplay includes credits for J. Michael Straczynski, John Hlavin and Allison Burnett, with credits also going to the original character creators: Kevin Grevioux, Len Wiseman and Danny McBride (not the actor). ScreenGems is bringing Underworld: Awakening, the fourth movie in the series, to theaters in 3D starting January 20th, 2012 early next year.
Pretty terrible job, from the focus of the make believe camera, to the treatment of typography. Who approves these things? Better yet, who keeps getting these jobs?

Freelancers who continue to undercut the pros. Apparently quality isn't as important as quantity these days. I have seen a lot worse though...

Vengeance returns? What the hell that's does mean? I'm pretty sure she got her revenge in Underworld 2.

... the sparkling things are really lame... used in any number of action movie posters. Still excited for the film though...
