The first full trailer of "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" has been uncovered. Focusing on introducing the two unlikely lovers, privileged-born vampire Sonja and slave-born lycan Lucian, and what they are capable of, the video traces the background story behind the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires, Death Dealers, and their onetime slaves, the Lycans.
Opened with a scene where vampire elder Viktor praises his daughter, Sonja, as the fiercest warrior he has ever seen, the trailer displays Sonja and Lucian breaking all the rules by becoming lovers. Then, it moves on to the time when Lucian is fed up of being slave and rallies his fellow lycans to rise up against their enslavers and thus, the second half of the trailer shows mostly the battle between the vampires and the lycans.
A prequel to "Underworld", "Rise of the Lycans" is a Screen Gems action fantasy about the fight between the two damned races. Starring Rhona Mitra, Michael Sheen and Bill Nighy as the three main characters, Sonja, Lucian and Viktor, the film is scripted by Danny McBride. It is set to be screened across the U.S. on January 23, 2009.
