I just saw the preview and it looks awesome. Kate has said no more catsuits & corsets for her; I guess this is supposed to be a prequel with Rhona Mitra (sp?) as the lead female. She was in Boston Legal, and the werewolf movie Skinwalkers. Not sure if she's playing the same character as Kate or not, cause they do look similar!
This prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers and their one-time slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor, the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja, in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom.
I had the opportunity this week to watch the first two Underworld movies on dvd. I'd not seen them before this, just heard about them. First one was great, second one was ok. I'll give the third one a try when its out on vid.
