Well, two years have passed which means it's time for another "Underworld" movie aka the other female-led supernatural franchise that isn't "Resident Evil." And note, this one brings Kate Beckinsale back to the fold after the origin story flick "Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans."

Well, two years have passed which means it's time for another "Underworld" movie aka the other female-led supernatural franchise that isn't "Resident Evil." And note, this one brings Kate Beckinsale back to the fold after the origin story flick "Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans."

"Underworld: Awakening" has unleashed its first trailer and it seems Swedish directors Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein were determined to give the entire film an icy blue look. It's kind of weird, giving the whole thing a dull but shiny monochromatic color scheme that, even worse, has been done before. But it's the least of the problems with the trailer, as the whole thing feels like a movie Milla Jovovich turned down. Isn't one movie with a lithe woman sliding on her knees in slo-mo enough? Guess not. But what do we know? The films are fairly inexpensive to make, and have done pretty well with "Underworld: Evolution" cracking $100 million worldwide. Clearly, the fans are out there.
