"Underworld Awakening" In IMAX 3D

VancouverFilm.Net reports that IMAX Corporation and Sony Pictures Entertainment will release "Underworld Awakening", the Vancouver-lensed fourth installment in the supernatural-action franchise produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and creator Len Wiseman, to IMAX digital theatres, simultaneously with the film's worldwide release, January 20, 2012.

The newest chapter in the "Underworld" vampires vs werewolves saga marks the return of actress Kate Beckinsale in the title role as vampiric heroine 'Selene', who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both the 'Vampire' and 'Lycan' clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both nocturnal species.

"'Underworld' is one of Screen Gems' most important franchises, so it's important to us to present the movie as its fans want to see it: on the IMAX screen," said Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures Releasing.

"The 'Underworld' franchise has established a dedicated fan following and we think 'Underworld Awakening' will serve as a terrific kick off to our robust 2012 film slate," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment.
