A few weeks back I wrote about a pile of new movie posters and that pile included the first official poster for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Here we have the second official poster for the prequel of the vampire franchise thanks to UGO.

The first poster featured Bill Nighy who reprises his role as Viktor, a leader of the vampire nation. This new poster features new-to-the-series Rhona Mitra (of Doomsday fame) who plays Sonja, daughter of Viktor of whom the story focuses on.

The poster looks fine to me, although nothing special, it fulfills its purpose. Much like the first poster, we’re again treated to the blue overlay, some medieval stylistic clothing and background, and the infamous light-blue eyes of the vampire protagonist as we’ve come to expect from the series.

Take a look for yourself:

What do you think? Do you dig Rhona Mitra as the new lead femme fatale, or do you miss and prefer Kate Beckinsale’s Selene as the lead vampire?

I don’t know about you, but I’ll be glad to see Lucian back in action with his lycan friends. Don’t forget to check out the trailer if you haven’t yet. That can be found here.
