Resident Evil or Underworld? Alice or Selene? Which Gun-Wielding Creature-Destroyer Do You Prefer?

Some of you have a sick fascination for the Resident Evil films. I get that. They’re not great films (or even decent), but Milla Jovovich, big guns, and zombie creatures? There’s something appealing about that. The Underworld movies have a similar appeal, only you can trade out Milla for Beckinsale and zombies for werewolves and vampires. They’re not good, but they are infinitely watchable. Part of that, at least in my experience, was the presence of Michael Sheen. Kate Beckinsale returns after taking off for the prequel, but here in Underworld: Awakening, Sheen does not , although I briefly wondered if, at the end of this trailer, when Beckinsale yells, “Where’s Michael!” if she meant Sheen?

Presumably, she means Michael Corvin, who was played by Scott Speedman. Scott Speedman is not in this movie, either, which suggests that Michael will not be found. Spoilers.

Here’s the trailer: It’s got leather, Beckinsale, and weaponry. Oh, and a blue filter.
