I know, I know, the fact that they’re even filming the movie at all is hellaciously exciting, –since for some reason, big budget werewolf movies seem to have a hell of a time getting off the ground. But we finally have something to howl about, and damn it, I mean to do some howling! The photos depict Kate Beckinsale getting ready for serious stunts, –or at least, a fairly convincing stunt double getting ready to do serious stunts. And a bunch of crew members hanging out around the set, working, and hardly working. Personally, I get the biggest kick out of seeing the stars dressed liked tired, normal people who just want to crawl back in bed and pass out, –because it looks like it’s frickin’ cold as hell where they are. Oh, and, not to gush, but I love seeing the set itself, and the environment they’ve created for the film.
“Here is where we had a few photos, but Sony sent us a Cease and Desist Anti-Piracy notice demanding we remove them.”
ComingSoon.net has a few details on what’s happening at the set, and for those of you still in the dark about the story, a short plot summary:
“Currently shooting in Vancouver, a first look at Underworld: New Dawn has hit in the form of behind-the-scenes photos, courtesy of Vancouver is Awesome.
Though Kate Beckinsale returns to the franchise for this fourth outing, the woman pictured in the stunt harness below is her stunt double, tackling an armed leap from the Simon Fraser University Library, apparently doubling as an Antigen corporate building.
The plot, per the original article, is described as follows:
“Sorry readers, we were asked politely by Sony to remove the leaked plot details.”
Underworld: New Dawn is set for release on January 20, 2012 and is being directed by Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein…”
The office buildings and urban atmosphere is so much more realistic than the typical giant green environments where action usually takes place these days. So it’s pretty cool to watch people actually interacting with their environment for the film. Anyway, I’ve chosen some of my favorite photos from the huge collection of images, —that you can find here, –and put them in the small gallery above so you can peruse them at your leisure, dear readers. No sign of werewolf action yet, but if the photographers keep shooting this well, we can expect to see pictures of our favorite monsters any day now!
