Kate Beckinsale will once again make fanboy dreams come true as she re-dons here black leather outfit for this winter's 3D supernatural action sequel, Underworld Awakening. Today we have a gallery of images and a reel of clips from Underworld 4 to share, along with a brief word from the stunning actress herself regarding the franchise's future.
It's a good day to be an Underworld fan, to be sure.
For those not already in the know: Underworld Awakening picks up over a decade after the events of Underworld Evolution, with vampire huntress Selene (Beckinsale) awakening from a cryogenic sleep, only to find herself in a brave new world where vampires and their hated foes the Lycans (werewolves) are now both hunted by humanity. Throw in a few subplots involving a new type of genetically-engineered Lycans, the remaining clan of vampire death-dealers, and a hybrid child with connections to Selene's past, and it all amounts to...well, Kate Beckinsale once again kicking ass in black leather.

Finally, check out what Kate Beckinsale had to day about the future of the Underworld franchise:
I’m the worst person to ask about this. I always said there wasn’t going to be a fourth one. So you can’t trust what I say at all. I don’t know. Part of me thinks that’s so peculiar to me. I don’t have a background in TV playing the same character for two years in a row. So playing the same character over and over again does seem a bit odd. But I am very fond of the character, and other people are pretty fond of her, too. So who knows? There’s part of me that thinks maybe it’s good to blaze a trail, to be the menopausal action heroine. Give me Underworld 12 and my little beard hairs. Me and Bruce Willis can go toe to toe.
Do vampire girls go through menopause? I mean, having that "special time of the month" would be both odd and delicious for them...but I (quickly) digress...
Underworld Awakening will be in theaters (2D and 3D and 3D IMAX) on January 20, 2012
