Trailer Park | Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

6 01 2009

What do you get when you subtract a film’s star (and drawing ticket) from the sequel but try to introduce a story? Your guess is good as ours as await the release of “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.”

Minus the hot Kate Beckinsdale, the “Underworld” franchise hopes to re-introduce and re-invigorate it’s story by releasing a prequel.

The story 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.

“Underworld: Rise of the Lycans” hits theaters on January 23.

I’m really looking forward to the new movie coming out next week. I know it’s really a prequel to the other movies, but it’s a different cast and some old favourites too. The poster and photos I’ve seen do look very promising. I hope it isn’t going to dissapoint like so many sequel/prequels do.
