Kate Beckinsale Talks UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING, UNDERWORLD 5, and TOTAL RECALL; Reveals Her Version of Lori is an Amalgamation of Lori and Richter

Kate Beckinsale UNDERWORLD 5 and TOTAL RECALL interview slice

With directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein’s Underworld: Awakening opening this weekend, I recently got to sit down with most of the cast to talk about making the movie.  Kate Beckinsale returns as Selene, “who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.”  Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy, Theo James, India Eisley, and Charles Dance also star.

During my interview with Beckinsale we talked about the action scenes and how they compare to the previous films, how long did she debate about returning to the franchise, pranks on set, what’s her karaoke song, and her thoughts on more Underworld movies.  In addition, with Beckinsale also starring in the remake of Total Recall as Lori (originally played by Sharon Stone), she talked about how her Lori compares to Stone’s version and what can fans look forward to in the remake.  Hit the jump to watch.
