Underworld: Awakening, the latest instalment in the vampire saga, is out today on DVD, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D and Movies on Demand on Cable. I can only encourage you to buy/rent it as the better the film does, the more chances we have of getting an Underworld 5… and we know it can’t just end like this!
While we wait for news I can give you this promising tidbit from India Eisley (Eve’s) Movieweb interview to promote the DVD release, and scroll down for two featurettes excerpts from the Blu-Ray, also courtesy of Movieweb.
Moveiweb: Have they discussed with you how involved you’re going to be in the upcoming sequels? Are they looking at you to kind of take over the franchise?
India Eisley: Oh, god! (Laughs) The one thing I like about the films as a whole is that this is more of an ensemble thing. Even one and two, though they are predominantly about Kate Beckinsale…There are so many different characters in 1 and 2, so its incredibly balanced. To have a film that is based solely on Eve is something that kind of terrifies me. (Laughs) Not in a bad way. But, because, things are more interesting when there is a bunch of people bouncing off each other. There have been talks. I’m not allowed to say much. I do look forward to working with all of them again.
Now for the freebies, Superglued/Complex magazine are holding an Underworld: Awakening DVD giveaway, so tweet away for your chance to win $1500 or one of 10 Awakening DVDs. Additionally, try your luck to win a DVD from the Daily Blam website (contest ends today!) and radios V103, K-hits and Q95. Good luck!
Is this the conclusion of Underworld?

Here’s a recap of all the latest info on Kate’s upcoming film projects!
Underworld: Awakening is coming out on DVD/Blu-Ray and Movies on Demand next Tuesday, and it seems the domain name UnderworldBattle.com points to a promotional Flash game around the Underworld universe. Guess we’ll have to wait a bit longer for UW5 updates!
Also out on Tuesday is the Underworld Legacy Collection, including all four films of the series. Check out the gorgeous visual below!
Total Recall: A (new) international trailer has been released, plus check out this new interview with director Len Wiseman discussing his take on the well-known story.
The Trials of Cate McCullough has properly progressed into pre-production: there’s been auditions to complete the cast and IMDb reports that filming will start on May 17, just about a fortnight from now! Kate will be playing a mother again as a little girl has been cast as her daughter.
The first trailer for the movie has been released!
Production is underway in Vancouver, British Columbia, on the 4th installment in the highly successful Screen Gems/Lakeshore Entertainment Underworld franchise. Underworld 4: New Dawn brings a stunning new dimension to the epic battle between Vampires and Lycans, as the first film in the franchise to shoot in 3D.
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.?
India Eisley is the newest cast member, starring as “Eve” (Selene’s daughter?), while the previously announced Michael Ealy takes on the role of “Detective Sebastian”. Sandrine Holt (Starship Troopers 2, Resident Evil: Apocalypse ) and Robert Lawrenson round out the cast.
Underworld 4, scheduled to arrive in theaters January 20, 2012, is helmed by Swedish directors Mans Marlind & Bjorn Stein, who co-directed the 2009 thriller Shelter starring Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Their feature credits also include the award-winning Swedish film Storm.
