New Clips From Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Lots of action and splashes of blood fill the screen as the sword-wielding vampire Sonja (Rhona Mitra) chops up her father's minions in a prelude to a more direct confrontation with dad in a one new clip from this latest installment in the Underworld franchise. The second clip shows Sonja and her Lycan lover Lucian in a dramatic escape from a fiery prison. A report back from an advance screening of other scenes in this prequel suggests that filmmakers really are trying to up the ante on epic battles here. One scene reportedly has a pack of Lycans literally rising up from the earth in an attack on a horse-drawn carriage. Another features a mass attack on a fortress by 300 werewolves in an echo of the battle of Helm's Deep from Lord of the Rings.
