'Underworld: Rise of the Lycans' Trailer is Vampires v. Werewolves v. LOVE

October 23, 2008


Here's your trailer to Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, starring Rhona Mitra as Sonja, Bill Nighy as Viktor, and werewolves as Lycans. Summary, from Apple:

The third film in the $200 million UNDERWORLD franchise delves into the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires, known as Death Dealers, and the barbaric Lycans (werewolves). A young Lycan, Lucian (Michael Sheen), emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Bill Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has persecuted them for hundreds of years. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, the beautiful vampire Sonja (Rhona Mitra), in his battle to free the Lycans from their brutal enslavement.

I almost get the impression that the vampire/wolf conflict here could be analogous to real-world oppressions! So controversial:

(Thanks to Andrew.)

Werewolves vs. vampires: whoever wins, we lose $11.50.
