Underworld Blu-ray Box Set on its Way Along With New Anime!





Excited for the release of Underworld: Awakening on January 20th, 2012? Sony is hoping that you are and, to assist you in catching up, is also releasing a badass Blu-ray box set!

According to IGN the box set itself, due on Blu-ray exclusively on December 13, 2011, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, will encompass the first three films plus the exclusive never-before-seen three-part anime series Underworld: Endless War! The anime series complements the live-action iteration by incorporating the themes of the story and spotlights the characters that we know and love, making it a must-see for fans of the films. You can get your first taste of the anime, along with full box set specs, below.

Long before vampires and werewolves were duking it out throughout the high schools of remote small towns in America, they were battling for supremacy of a fantasy world where the vampires hold sway in society, while a gang of lycans – otherwise known as werewolves – begin their ascension to a power struggle, all while a gorgeous vampire (Kate Beckinsale) begins to fall in love with one of the enemies, a lycan hybrid (Scott Speedman).

    NEXT STORY

    Been tempted to get the films on Blu-Ray for a while; but been waiting till about film 4. I'm almost tempted to hold off till part 4 hits Blu-Ray as I know there will be another box set for that. If it does well and spawns a new trilogy...there will be a set for that.

    Gawd...can be so hard at times to get movies at home :P

    Though somehow don't think any will include digital copies; strange how Sony is pushing so much on the homefront, but not DCs....
