The first trailer for “Underworld: Awakening”, the fourth installment of the popular vampire/lycans action series has officially arrived… and Selene (played by Kate Beckinsale) looks pretty pissed off. Story-wise, Selene has just woken up after being trapped for twelve years. Humans now hunt vampires and lycans– a far cry from what we’ve come to expect from the “Underworld” universe.
They manage to pack quite a bit of action into the first trailer and we have to say — we like what we see. It looks like the franchise is going back to its more successful roots (that of the first “Underworld” film), a refreshing change from where the series had been heading. The fact that the franchise was fast-forwarded twelve years also allows the film crew to play the “reboot” angle. Will it work?
