You know, I’ve been feeling a little vamped out since I discovered that the undead sparkle, but the Underworld movies have always been a great cure for that. I love everything about them, from the very aesthetically-pleasing-to-stare-at Selene kicking ass, to the constant blue tint that never goes the hell away.
And after some very questionable books and movies with vampires lately, Underworld just goes straight back the original source materials, the legends we know, and doesn’t fuck around with them.
And this trailer promises that the new movie will be just as good as the last ones.
One complaint I have heard though—from Lady Geek Girl, particularly—is that Michael will not be in this movie, which makes no sense, since she was only captured for twelve years and he’s practically undefeatable. And that begs the question: how did the humans even capture Selene? She seems to have no trouble breaking out.
Anyways, the movie is apparently about her looking for Michael and their daughter Eve. Yes, they have a daughter. No, I didn’t know that either until about ten minutes ago. I also keep hearing rumors that Michael will be in this, but he’s not currently credited, so at this point, I don’t think anyone really knows.
Regardless, this is definitely a movie I’ll be seeing, and at the moment, I highly recommend it.
