San Diego Comic-Con 2011: Day 2 (July 22) Schedule Now Live; Panel Info for The Walking Dead, True Blood, and More!
The horror-themed goods at Comic-Con just got a lot bigger and better with the confirmation of Friday, July 22's panel schedule, which includes some of our returning favorite and most anticipated new TV shows such as "The Walking Dead", "True Blood", "Bedlam" and "The River" along with films like Raven, Underworld 4, Fright Night, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Attack the Block.
Now this is what we call good news. After the Twi-Heads get their time at the San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 21st, the following day, July 22nd, the grown-ups of Underworld 4: New Dawn, will head to Hall H to show the kids how to do that whole vampire/lycan thing right.
The Underworld franchise is an anomaly of sorts as with every sequel it's actually gotten better and not worse. Who would have thunk it? With the fourth chapter on the horizon, we have the new official title and a rather telling plot reveal!
It looks like the final nail went into the casting couch's coffin today as Sony Pictures Entertainment launched Face of the Fan, a new initiative for virtual talent sourcing. First on their list of projects to lend a hand to is Screen Gems' and Lakeshore Entertainment's Underworld 4.
Swedish horror has become the flavor of the last several months and with movies like Let the Right One In being all the rage, it's easy to see why.
News that a fourth Underworld movie is preparing to go before the cameras is no surprise. That Kate Beckinsale will be returning as vampiric death dealer Selene might be somewhat surprising given her absence in the third installment that went the prequel route instead.
So it appears things aren't coming together as quickly as hoped for the latest Underworld installment as its release date has just been pushed back from September 23, 2011, to January 20, 2012.
Len Wiseman (aka The Luckiest Man Alive as far as I'm concerned) was kicking around the San Diego Comic-Con promoting the television reboot of Hawaii Five-0, and the conversation inevitably turned to the Underworld franchise and the question of a fourth installment.
The Sony release date shuffle has begun, and several of this year's flicks have been pushed to 2011. Let's look at the tale of the tape!
The Underworld franchise is a bit of an anomaly. Usually the longer a franchise runs, the worse the films get. In the case of Underworld it's just the opposite. With a fourth version coming at us in 3D, there's been a lot of speculation as to what will happen. A sequel to the prequel? A sequel to the sequel? Finally a few details have emerged.
The Underworld franchise is pretty rare in that it actually has been getting better as it goes along. In fact, we'd call that a goddamn anomaly. With a fourth entry on the way, can the wheel keep rolling uphill?
Potential plotlines for a fourth installment in the Underworld franchise have been floating around since January, 2008, when the head of Lakeshore said confidently Underworld 4 “would carry on where Kate [Beckinsale] and Scott Speedman left off after 2.″ Now that Sony Screen Gems has given the project the green light, we'll see if he was telling the truth.
