New Preview Clip for Underworld: Awakening Starring Kate Beckinsale
01.06.12 by Ryan
With time running out before Underworld: Awakening opens later this month, Sony Screen Gems is doing everything possible to get the word out about the fourth installment in the Underworld franchise, releasing the first preview clip from the upcoming sequel.
Awakening marks Kate Beckinsale's return as the leather-clad vampire Selene (now replete with leather duster), explaining her absence from the franchise by putting Selene in a 12 year coma — it's only been six years since Beckinsale appeared in 2006's Underworld: Evolution, but perhaps one of our years is two in "the underworld"? She then has a rude awakening (ahem) that her Vampire-Lycan hybrid daughter (India Eisley) is being used as a pawn in the war between vampires and lycans, a war that now includes humans (and many, many guns).
In the movie's first preview clip, Selene meets up with her daughter for the very first time.
Awakening was written by John Hlavin (TV's The Shield), with rewrites by J. Michael Straczynski (Changeling) and directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein. Michael Ealy, Stephen Rea, Charles Dance, and Theo James co-star.
