Watch Two People Talk In ‘Underworld: Endless War’ Anime Clip

In stores NOW comes Underworld Trilogy: The Essential Collection for Underworld, which 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!

Check out a clip featuring a whole lotta talking, and the full trailer for the anime inside, along with full box set specs. 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). The box set will contain bonus materials and extra features, and will ring up at the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $45.99.
