Underworld: Rise of the Lycans - trailer

An Underworld movie without Kate Beckinsale doesn't seem as cool. Beckinsale completely owned that role! She was kick-butt while bringing a softness and depth to her character at the same time. The next movie in the series is a prequel the original. The trailer looks pretty good except for the lead actress, Rhona Mitra. I saw her in Doomsday and her acting was extremely bland, even when she's been in supporting roles her performances were decent at best. But you never know, sometimes actors can surprise you. Since Underworld is what made me like vampire films I'm hoping this one turns out good despite the fact that Len Wiseman didn't direct it.

What are your thoughts on the latest addition to the franchise?

Bottom line: I'm excited. If Kate isn't there then it had better be a prequel. It's the smartest decision: Go back and detail the back story of the franchise. Genius!

I agree, a prequel was their best bet.

I'll admit, I'm not the biggest fan of the Underworld films, so with that said, I'm sold on Rhona Mitra in the role. Doomsday as a whole was a letdown, but I wouldn't go as far to say as it had anything to do with her abilities. Given a better script, I think she would've had the potential to be a great genre character piece for her... In other words, Highwaymen was a guilty pleasure. Great site.--
