Beckinsale, Blades, and Bullets in Four New 'Underworld Awakening' Stills

Screen Gems has released four new official images from Underworld Awakening, two of which focus on Michael Ealy, who would seem to be playing a human in the film, and two which rightly include Kate Beckinsale in the signature black leather catsuit of Seline.  That is, as mentioned, a tally of four new stills from the first Underworld picture to get the 3D treatment.  With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 having already become the fifth-biggest movie of 2011, it's as if Screen Gems wants us to know that next year will include a much sexier vampire who wields automatic weapons with aplomb and beats the hell out werewolves who don't spend all their time moping and imprinting on babies.

The fourth installment in the Underworld franchise finds the death-dealing vampire Seline waking up after years in cryogenic imprisonment at the hands of humans.  The world she finds is one which humanity has discovered the existence of both vampires and werewolves and is in the midst of winning an all-out war on both species.  Ass-kicking and whatnot naturally ensues.

Beckinsale was last seen as Seline in 2006's Underworld: Evolution, but she sat out the 2009 prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, in which Rhona Mitra played a variation on the requisite lead role of sexy lady who also kills lots of people.  Though Beckinsale is back, original director Len Wiseman is busy helming next year's Total Recall remake starring Colin Farrell and Beckinsale.  In his place are Swedish directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein, overseeing a cast that includes Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy, India Eisley, Sandrine Holt, Kris Holden-Ried, and Charles Dance, who Game of Thrones fans recognize as Tywin Lannister, a man who generally likes to pay his debts.

Underworld Awakening is set to hit theaters in 3D on January 20, 2012.
