Last week I had the chance to sit down with the stars of Underworld: Awakening 3D, Kate Beckinsale chiefly among them.
The new film adds a wrinkle to the mix by including actual humans in the ongoing battle between Vampires and Lycans. I talked to the newer members of the cast (Theo James, India Eisley and Michael Ealy) about joining the long running franchise. Meanwhile, Kate Beckinsale seemed quite happy to be back and was able to go into some detail regarding the tone of the upcoming ‘Total Recall’ remake.
I was also surprised to hear that co-directors Marlind & Stein literally alternated days on set, trading off which one of them got to call the shots depending on the day. Judging from these interviews, it would appear that process went shockingly smoothly.
In theaters January 20, “Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress 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.”
Directed by Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein, this sequel stars Kate Beckinsale, Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy, Theo James, India Eisley, and Charles “I want the Ajanti Dagger!” Dance.
