Oooooo… Kate Beckinsale is back to reprise her role as Selene in the fourth installment in the horror/action hybrid ‘Underworld’ series, ‘Underworld: New Dawn’. Now, at the age of 37 and after skipping out on the third movie, ‘Underworld: Rise of the Lycans’ (which was a hot mess), Kate is as stunning as ever in skin-tight latex body suit and a grey pea coat. The photo above (the first with Kate as Selene) was take in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada where the movie is shooting. You all know how much iGT adores Kate Beckinsale, so its a “no brainer” than we would feature any picture of Kate in some latex. For curious Underworld fans, below is the plot for New Dawn:

After being held in a coma-like state for fifteen years, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) learns that she has a fourteen-year-old vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter, Nissa, and when she finds her they must stop BioCom from creating super Lycans that will kill them all.

BioCom sounds a lot like “The Umbrella Corporation”. Go figure. There no word on the return of Scott Speedman as Michael, but Michael Sheen (Lucian) and Bill Nighy (Viktor) is set to return and actor Michael Ealy (For Colored Girls, FlashForward) will be playing  the lead male role as an FBI agent that is hunting Selene, who later becomes her ally. The team behind, ‘Shelter’, Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein are directing.

‘Underworld: New Dawn’ opens on January 20th, 2012

‘Game of Thrones’ is one of the biggest things to hit television for many (including myself). Game of Thrones is an epic fantasy series based on the books of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ by American author George R.R. Martin. HBO has adapted the books into a ten episode (for the rookie season) series that will start airing on April 17th, 2011. The series stars the amazing Sean Bean as Eddard “Ned” Stark who is also known as the “Lord of Winterfell”. The poster titled “Winter is Coming” (also the title for the pilot episode), Ned is featured gazing into his sword “Ice” while sitting on the “Iron Throne of Westero”. Just from the look of the posters, you can find that it is going to be an amazing treat for the senses. I will be tuning in on April 3rd at 9:00 EST when the first fifteen minutes of “Winter is Coming” airs for our enjoyment on HBO. Cheers!

Warner Bros. recently released an animated short titled ‘Sucker Punch: The Trenches’ follows the story of who the men behind the masks of the mechanized soldiers are that the lovely gun-toting dames of ‘Sucker Punch’ are fighting.

In Sucker Punch, the girls face off against an army of mechanized WWI soldiers. Through the use of clockwork and steam technology, human soldiers who die in battle are reanimated and sent back to the front lines. Although seemingly indistinguishable and soulless, the zombie army is not just made of gears and steam, but also of human flesh, bone, and memory. In “The Trenches” there is a tragic tale behind each lifeless mask.

Ben Hibon (the man behind the animation) does an amazing job showing the life of a common soldier with a family cut-down by a sniper in war, only to be revived into a steampunk-type machine of war. As he continues to battle, his life passes before his eyes has the vicious circle of death by war victimizes him again. Even though, it is only inspired by Zack Snyder and Sucker Punch, Hibon does an amazing job recreating the world of Sucker Punch. It is definitely worth watching and it makes me even more excited to check out Sucker Punch on March, 25th, 2011.

I love it when people take LEGO fandom to the next level. Poster designers, OldRedJalopy created a pretty impressive collection of posters featuring the 2011 Oscar “Best Picture” nominated films with a LEGO twist. Each nominated film’s respective posters such as ‘Black Swan’, ‘Inception’, and ‘The King’s Speech’ are recreated integrating “LEGO people” in place of the human actors. I especially love the work done on Danny Boyle’s  ‘127′ hours as it features an 8-bit style background featuring a LEGO cliff side. Unfortunately, unlike Aron Ralston (played brilliantly by James Franco) who cut his hand off to escape, LEGO Aron would only have to unplug his hand.

Sucker Punch

As you can tell, I am quite excited for Zack Snyder’s ‘Sucker Punch’. A lot of you are as well. Opening day is coming up fast and the studios are at full force trying to push the movie. Warner Bros. released a full press kit which included 45 high resolution stills from the movie. Whats really impressive is that considering these are basically screen caps, how amazing the images are. I would never expect anything less from Zack Snyder, but even than, you can’t help but be stunned from the visuals. Below is the press release for Sucker Punch.

Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared.

“Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.

She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung)—to band together and try to escape a terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac) and Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino), before the mysterious High Roller (Jon Hamm) comes for Babydoll.

Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey—if they succeed—will set them free.

Born from the creative vision of filmmaker Zack Snyder (“Watchmen,” “300″), “Sucker Punch” features an ensemble cast of young stars, including Emily Browning (“The Uninvited”), Abbie Cornish (“Bright Star”), Jena Malone (“Into the Wild”), Vanessa Hudgens (the “High School Musical” films) and Jamie Chung (“Sorority Row”). The film’s main cast also includes Carla Gugino (“Watchmen”) and Oscar Isaac (“Robin Hood”), with Jon Hamm (“The Town,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Scott Glenn (“The Bourne Ultimatum”).

Zack Snyder directed “Sucker Punch” from a screenplay he wrote with Steve Shibuya, based on Snyder’s story. Snyder and Deborah Snyder produced, with Thomas Tull, Wesley Coller, Jon Jashni, Chris deFaria, Jim Rowe and William Fay serving as executive producers.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Academy Award®-winning production designer Rick Carter (“Avatar”) and “Watchmen” and “300″ veterans director of photography Larry Fong, editor William Hoy and costume designer Michael Wilkinson. The music is by Tyler Bates and Marius DeVries.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Cruel and Unusual Production, a Zack Snyder film, “Sucker Punch.” Opening nationwide in theaters and IMAX on March 25, 2011, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

One of the couple things I took away from these photos were: 1. Emily Browning is so adorable. 2. Jon Hamm is in Sucker Punch?! You can hit the jump to check out some of the high-resolution photos from Sucker Punch and hit up Collider.com for more!

Los Angeles based illustrator, Reza Rasoli AKA rezatron (@rezatron) like to doodle zombies in his spare time. Reza takes some of our favorite pop culture iconic characters like Link from ‘Legend of Zelda’ and Marty from ‘Back to the Future’ and puts a nasty zombie spin on each one. While most “zombie” illustrations are gross and hideous, I find Reza’s zombies to be humorous and whimsical. There is something very endearing behind the blood and gore. You can see Reza’s various work on his website.

Matthew Vaughn has been quoted that ‘X-Men: First Class’ will be the ‘Batman Begins’ of the X-Men universe. When comparisons like that is made, we expect excellence. Well, we didn’t get that yesterday at the ‘X-Men: First Class’ Facebook page. What we got were probably the two ugliest fucking posters of ALL TIME. All it was, is a black silhouette of “Future” Professor X and Magneto with a large face of the “First Class” version of themselves floating at their crotch. I have to ask. What dumb bastard at the studio made these and why do they still have a job when there are tons of artists that can do better sitting on a toilet that can’t find a paying job? For example, “Duckala” created two awesome fan-made ‘X-Men: First Class’ posters that blew my mind. It was simple, but beautifully done. It serves as a great tribute to classic poster art from movies like ‘Vertigo’. Fox needs to get their shit together and scrap these. It’s not like a lot of work went into them.
