According to the consistently reliable ShockTilYouDrop.com, Sony’s Screen Gems is moving ahead with a fourth film in the “Underworld” franchise and is targeting a January 2011 release. Word is that the film will be shot in 3D, but it’s not clear whether the film will be another prequel, like this year’s successful Rise of the Lycans, or a continuation of the present-day story that left off with Underworld: Evolution. I’ll post more information as it becomes available!
ShockTillYouDrop.com has got some exclusive new images from the forthcoming Underworld movie, including a rather imposing poster / onesheet of Viktor (Bill Nighy). Nothing featuring a werewolf yet, but if you’re a fan of Rhona Mitra in tight black clothing, you’ll want to visit the gallery.
If you haven’t already seen it, there’s an official trailer out for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. There’s a lot of blue filters, eye makeup, improbable armour and clumsy sword-ballet… but there’s also an army of werewolves and a particularly vicious-looking Bill Nighy. Take a look for yourself.
Of additional interest is this review (yes, a trailer review) by Jason Roestel of Movie Examiner. Among other things, Roestel opines that “the werewolves in costume… look so 1955.” While you can kind of tell they don’t have as big a budget as the previous two films, I thought the werewolves looked great. What do you think?
