The Underworld films actually improved from the first to the second, so one can only hope the third will follow suit. The directorial debut of effects man Patrick Tatopoulos, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, goes back to the beginning of the feud between the vampires and the werewolves.
Been looking for some better quality photos of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans for a few days now; leave it to Entertainment Weekly to nab them first!
Our man Tristan checked in a bit ago after sitting down with Underworld: Rise of the Lycans star Rhona Mitra with some more details on the sequel, due out on January 23rd, 2009.
On display at this year’s Comic Con are a bunch of very cool costumes from the upcoming sequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Of course our man Nomad couldn’t stop taking pictures of what they had on hand, so check it out below!
Man, nothing irks me more than waiting and waiting to see the DVD art for a movie I’m looking forward to, only for it to just be the theatrical poster. So many good images from Doomsday and they just had to go with this again, eh?
Universal has finally set a date for the DVD release of Neil Marshall’s Doomsday (review), a movie that, at best, divided fans as to its validity since it was really one big homage. But damnit, it was done the right way if you ask me!
All of you who bitched that Rhona Mitra’s turn in Doomsday was too similar to Kate Beckinsale’s role in the Underworld movies must’ve been predicting the future, as Sci Fi Pi discovered that Mitra is co-starring in Patrick Tatopolous’ Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans.

Neil Marshall’s MySpace page just got a very sweet update featuring a ton of behind the scenes pics from his latest film, Doomsday, out March 14th from Rogue Pictures!
Doomsday is coming, we all know when (“Doomsday Gets a Date!” – January 2008) ... but what will it look like? What will the epic plague on Earth leave in its wake? Will the people who survived outside of the containment zone retain their humanity? Will the disease that drove the human race to near extinction be cured?
I really can’t wait for Doomsday. Neil Marshall’s track record to date has shown us a director who loves working in our genre and knows how to do it right and even though Doomsday isn't horror, it is post-apocalyptic and in my book, that’s close enough.
Just a few days back it was reported that a new Underworld movie was getting ready to roll in New Zealand ("Kiwis in the Underworld" – October 2007), but that was literally all the information we had on it.
There are those who love the Underworld series and those who hate it. If you're a fan of the flicks, I've got good news for you -- and it comes all the way from New Zealand.
British horror is making a comeback here in the US. Over the past few years we've seen some great films from the UK (surprisingly ... considering the state of Hollywood) getting wide releases in theaters nationwide. Even more refreshing is that some studios are actually making an effort to promote the films ("4 Till Doomsday" - July 26th, 2007).
