Opening Today: “Underworld: Awakening” (1/20/2012)

Poster - Underworld Awakening - 2012

The second sequel to the “Underworld” series continues with “Underworld: Awakening” and of course it stars the deadly Kate Beckinsale as Selene, the series heroine vampire. Having enjoyed all three of the films that preceded this one, I am very excited for it. Check out this basic premise that I copied from the film’s Wikipedia page:

“Six months after the events of Underworld: Evolution, humans have captured Selene during “The Purge”, a global military crusade to exterminate vampires and lycans. Vampires have waged guerrilla warfare against the government, but the humans have overrun them, forcing survivors to hide underground and resist the humans on their own.”

Of course the entry gives out more information that would end up making this a spoiler and I cannot allow that to happen so will close it up with the casting detail and the view that to learn the rest of the story you will just have to sit in the theaters of our fair metropolis. Well, if you don’t live in NYC like we do feel free to do that same thing in your own metropolis šŸ™‚ So who else enjoyed this overall creepy premise and is excited for the next chapter?
