IGN just broke the news on a new Blu-ray high-definition collection for the Kate Beckinsale stylistic action series, Underworld. Dubbed Underworld Trilogy: The Essential Collection for Underworld, the set contains the first three installments of the saga – Underworld: Extended Cut, Underworld: Evolution, and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans – in addition to two tickets to see the fourth entry of the series, Underworld: Awakening, in theaters when it arrives at the box office starting January 20, 12.
The box set itself, due on Blu-ray exclusively on December 13, 2011 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, will encompass the first three films plus the exclusive never-before-seen three-part anime series Underworld: Endless War! The anime series complements the live-action iteration by incorporating the themes of the story and spotlights the characters that we know and love, making it a must-see for fans of the films. You can get your first taste at the anime above, along with full box set specs inside.
Long before vampires and werewolves were duking it out throughout the high schools of remote small towns in America, they were battling for supremacy of a fantasy world where the vampires hold sway in society, while a gang of lycans – otherwise known as werewolves – begin their ascension to a power struggle, all the while a gorgeous vampire (Beckinsale) begins to fall in love with one of the enemies, a lycan hybrid (Scott Speedman).
