Underworld: Rise of the Lycans Trailer Debuts at Comic-Con
07.26.08 by REELZ
So why do the werewolves and vampires of the Underworld universe dislike each other so much, anyway? We'll find out when Underworld: Rise of the Lycans arrives in theaters next January.
Speaking at Comic-Con today, Rise of the Lycans director Patrick Tatopoulos explained to the Hall H audience that "we're going to back into the origin of the slavery, when the lycans were overtaken by the vampires, and their quest for freedom, and the incredible love story between the two protagonists, which is Sonja (Rhona Mitra) and Lucian (Michael Sheen) -- Sonja being a vampire and Lucian being a lycan."
Tatopoulos also debuted the as-yet-unfinished Rise of the Lycans trailer, which featured a grungy Michael Sheen inciting his fellow enslaved lycans to revolt against their vampire overlords, followed quickly by copious scenes of werewolves and vampires in battle.
