Opening in a few weeks is the 3rd in the “Underworld” series and it’s called “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans”. While the last movie was a sequel and it continued the first movies storyline, this sequel is actually a prequel.
According to the synopsis, “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans” delves into the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires, known as Death Dealers, and the barbaric Lycans (werewolves). A young Lycan, Lucian (Michael Sheen), emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Bill Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has persecuted them for hundreds of years. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, the beautiful vampire Sonja (Rhona Mitra), in his battle to free the Lycans from their brutal enslavement.
Tomorrow I’m doing an editing room visit and I’ll be speaking with director Patrick Tatopoulos and two of the people that did the effects for this film. I’d imagine I’ll see a lot of footage so expect an update soon on what they showed us. Until then…here are over 20 new images from the movie. While Rhona Mitra isn’t Kate Beckinsale…she’s still pretty easy on the eyes….
