Upcoming Movie: Underworld 3 - Rise of the Lycans (2009)

In less than two months, the third installment in the Underworld franchise triology will premiere in theatres nationwide in late January 2009. The official name is Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans. It is a prequel to the first two movies that answers questions about the origins of the main characters, specifically Viktor (the vampire king) and Lucian, leader of the Lycans (werewolves). The setting is the Dark Ages (medieval period).

The prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian (Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom. - IMDB

If you have not seen the first two movies (Underworld, Underworld: Evolution), you can rent it now at local movie places such as Blockbuster or try online movie sites such as hulu.com and Netflix. I really recommend watching both movies first because they do a great job realistically depicting the personalities of vampires and werewolves. Vampires are masters; werewolves are their slaves. Their war is ancient and brutal.

You can watch the official trailer below:


Stay tuned to my movie review in 2009!
