'Underworld: Awakening' trailer: Kate Beckinsale and friends are really hard on the eyes

Since nobody anywhere has ever really enjoyed looking at Kate Beckinsale in a skin-tight black catsuit, the actress makes her triumphant return to the Underworld series in the nude. Poor, poor us.

The first trailer for Jan. 20’s Underworld: Awakening was released today, and our hearts are already palpitating for Beckinsale’s return for the fourth installment of the vampire series. (Beckinsale was absent from Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, the prequel released in 2009.) After the opening wardrobe snafu, however, Beckinsale is quickly back in her signature leotard to play butt-kicking, werewolf-slaying vampire Selene. Bummer, right? We know.

This chapter finds Selene, newly escaped from imprisonment, battling to save her species from evil humans working to eradicate both the Vampire and Lycan clans. And as a bonus, the trailer also features a tantalizing first look at a new addition to the series: Selene’s hideous new vampire pal David, played by 26-year-old British actor Theo James.

Watch Selene battles werewolves, pesky humans, and oh-so-inconvenient nudity below:

    While no one except them knows whether or not they have been trying, it is strange that after seven years of marriage, Kate Beckinsale still hasn’t had any children with Len Wiseman. He has selflessly helped raise her daughter for all this time and she seems solely focused on her career.

    • Just Wondering

      What if they have chosen not to have anymore children? It is not a requirement of marriage.

    • Liz

      Yes how strange that she doesn’t want to rip her body apart for another child that will suck the life from her. Shame that she only wants one child. She should have more, after all the Earth can sustain an infinite number of humans so we should all breed as much as possible. Heaven help her for wanting to have a career. What a selfish beeyotch.

        “Yes how strange that she doesn’t want to rip her body apart for another child that will suck the life from her. ”

        LOL okay. How’s therapy going?

      • Uu

        Your stupidity is………….scary

      • Uu

        I mean……WOW

      • Cronus

        Rip her body apart? Suck the life from her? Have you had kids, or were you in a deleted scene from the movie Aliens?

    • Jose

      You know what else is strange? You’ve posted that exact same comment on other sites, do you not have any thing else to do all day?

      • April

        Even stranger, the fact that you are following this troll across the internet. Jump off the rainbow, Mary.

      • Jose

        Is it following if those are my usual sites and he keeps appering and I just noticed? I mean this was the only time I replied on that comment

    • etm

      Nadine, that is so not strange!

    • Joanne

      It’s a pity, Nadine, that you are such a selfish person and are using your time on earth posting nasty personal attacks on people you don’t know. You should be ending world hunger or curing cancer. Selfish beeyotch!

    • Charlotte

      What a disgusting comment. Hate much?

    • AM

      I’m sorry but that truly isn’t anyone’s business but theirs. She may not want anymore children- have you considered that?

  • JPink

    Yeah…. where is Michael?

    • Bri

      I was thinking the same exact thing! I don’t know if I want to watch this without any Scott Speedman in it.

      • Asha

        It’s been a while since I’ve seen an of the Underworld movies and I was totally lost during this trailer. I’ll have to pick them up again.

    • Nerwen Aldarion

      Hmm I wonder if she will be looking for Michael throughout this film. This might be a continuation for another one. It would be interesting if it turned out Michael was taken too…

    • AM

      I thought the same thing. I’m not really into the new storyline.

  • Susan

    What’s with all the sarcasm? And what does Len & Kate not having kids have to do with UW4? I love the series and looking forward to this one too.

  • buddymoore

    I dont care if this is the worst movie ever made, I have no problem with staring at Kate Beckinsale for two hours.

  • David

    Kate Beckinsale= Hot!
    Kate Beckinsale in the first Underworld= Really Hot!
    Kate Beckinsale in this movie= Jaw Dropping Hot!!!

    • wtf

      Kate Beckinsale in person=mind boggling beautiful.
      I had the opportunity to meet this woman and in person she’s even more amazing.

      the underworld movies..not so much.

  • Nick T

    Damnnnnnnnn! He is beautiful!

  • DavidJ

    I’m all for vampires vs werewolves, but that first movie had to be the dullest, most humor-free thing I’ve ever seen. Can’t believe this series has as many fans as it does.

  • Barry

    Too bad that Bill Nighy & Michael Sheen aren’t in this one.

  • LOL

    They cancelled LA Ink and Kate plus 8 in the same week??? There must be a God as the worlds prayers have been answered! Maybe they remembered what TLC starts for.

  • LOL

    America loves Kate!

  • LOL

    LOL loves Kate!

  • Sarah

    I hope we get to find out the answer to Selene’s question at the end of the trailer… where’s Michael? I am hoping that while he is not in this movie that the character will be a huge factor in the plot.

  • Makeith

    One of the most naturally beautiful woman in Hollywood today. I would watch her paint a wall.

  • Ashlee

    I looked up the cast list and saw that Scott Speedman wasn’t in it…makes me sad. I hope they haven’t gotten rid of him completely but other than that the other Vampires they have in it look pretty hot.

  • MIK

    Love ALL UNDERWORLDS and this one will be great ! But wish Nighy and Speedman were in it ! BTW ~ What Beckinsale does in her personal life is HER business.
