Underworld: Next Generation

Kate Beckinsale Underworld movie  imageAny excuse to post a picture of Kate Beckinsale as Selene… Lakeshore Entertainment is moving forward with a reboot of the Unerdworld vampire action franchise. Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing the film tentatively titled Underworld: Next Generation which seems toindicate that it will focus on Eve (India Eisley), the hybrid daughter of vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael (Scott Speedman).

The first Underworld film, directed by Len Wiseman and starring Kate Beckinsale, was released in 2003. Playing the strong vampire Selena made Beckinsale into a bankable action star, and three films followed in 2006 (Underworld: Evolution), 2009 (prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) and 2012 (Underworld: Awakening).

The vampires versus werewolves franchise has so far grossed $458.2 million worldwide.Underworld: Awakening, the 3D film that saw Beckinsale reprise her role as Selene, was the highest earner in the franchise, taking in $160 million worldwide.

Cory Goodman wrote the script for the 2011 film Priest, starring Paul Bettany. He also penned the script for the upcoming Summit film The Last Witch Hunter starring Vin Diesel and Rose Leslie, and directed by Breck Eisner of The Crazies remake, which is currently in pre-production… not holding out much hope.


Total Recall (2012) – Trailer

The official trailer for Total Recall (2012) starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy. As the nation states Euromerica and New Shanghai vie for supremacy, a factory worker (Farrell) begins to suspect that he’s a spy, though he is unaware which side of the fight he’s on. Philip K. Dick would NOT be amused.

Nothing really new, but it looks action-packed, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel fighting… I’m there…


Underworld: Awakening

Another Resident Evil is on the way, and this fourth instalment in the Underworld series will be released in January. I’ll probably see it if there’s nothing else on that week, and as with Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil, watching Kate Beckinsale is easy… however i just don’t get why these movies are so profitable…
