SDCC 2011: ‘Underworld: Awakening’ Panel Brings The Return Of Kate Beckinsale
  |  @   |  

What’s that? You had no idea they were making another Underworld movie? Well, then””allow me to inform you that yes, indeed, there is a new Underworld movie on the way, and it is titled Underworld: Awakening. What you might also not know, is that star of the first two installments, Kate Beckinsale, is back in tight leather outfits for your fanboy amusement.

The panel””which consisted of directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein, stars Beckinsale, Michael Ealy, and Theo James, and producer and director of the first two movies, Len Wiseman“”didn’t bring a ton to the table as they’re only about half–way through filming it, but they did bring some footage to check out.

Keep on reading for the Underworld: Awakening footage description, as well as some images from the panel.

In the footage, which was pretty brief, we see Beckinsale’s Selene character coming out of some kind of holding tank or chamber or some sort. She quickly finds said skin–tight leather outfit, and proceeds to the violence, which involved much throat–slitting. Basically just a tease of the violence and gore we can expect from the movie.

A few things were revealed about the movie during the panel. Apparently this time around, humans are now aware of vampires and werewolves and they’re not thrilled about, waging a war to try and rid the world of both species. And speaking of werewolves (though they weren’t shown in the footage), we were assured that there would be plenty of Lycans involved.

It was also shared that a daughter of Selene’s would likely be involved in the movie, but it wasn’t shared how it would be presented.

That was about it for the movie itself. One more nugget shared was that there will be some kind of animated spinoff of the Underworld series featured on Awakening‘s DVD and Blu-ray releases.
