The leather-clad, vampiric, wolf lovin' 'Selene' (Kate Beckinsale) is back in another entry into the 'Underworld' franchise!

Since the first sequel - 'Underworld: Evolution' - both original director, Len Wiseman and the aforementioned Beckinsale (Wiseman's wife, BTW) were absent from the schlocky, but fun 'Rise of the Lycans' (Wiseman took a backseat to produce), and one got the feeling that it was gonna be a three film kinda deal...right?


The franchise has revealed it's new film - 'Underworld: Awakening' with a new trailer:

It seems as though they've stuck to the tried and true formula: 'Make it broody...Give it a nu-metal soundtrack - the kids'll love it...oh, and throw in some mixed martial arts', as well as having the usual darkened corridors, quick - music video - style editing and camera work.

This time round we have been given a new director pairing in the form of Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein - directors of the 2009 Julianne Moore starrer 'Shelter' - of whom it will be interesting to see whether or not they can pull off a full-blown action / special effects movie...time will tell.

Underworld: Awakening is set for release on Jan 20th 2012.
