Trailer: Wrath of the Titans

Perseus embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, who has been targeted for capture by his traitorous son, Ares, and his brother, Hades.

First Impression: To say the first one was a bad movie is doing it justice i thought it was terrible so i have very little confidence on how well this going to turn out, it might be good but the trailer to me doesn’t look that special.

Trailer: Underworld – Awakening

Kate Bekinsale returns for the fourth Underworld movie due out next year, though Len Wiseman, who helmed the first two movies, does not return, instead this movie is being co-directed by Måns Mårlind & Björn Stein.

First reactions? I Enjoyed the Underworld movies, and am interested to see where it goes, but after the events at the end of the last movie following Seline I had expected her to become more than just a vampire, but looks in the trailer like they haven’t followed up that storyline? Guess we’ll find out next year.
