Underworld: Awakening opens in theatres today, so as a release day treat, here is part two the Dark Lord Bunnykins’ chat with lead actress Kate Beckinsale:

 

Regarding Selene, what is about her that you like and does she serve any particular function for you as an actress, like getting out your aggression for instance?

No, not really. I do think I’m attracted to female roles that are kind of empowering and interesting and complicated, in whatever kind of movie, whether it’s a comedy… I think it’s important to have those criteria to make it interesting for yourself, or drama or whatever. It just happens to be in a genre movie. But that genre tends to also be one of the few that really does celebrate an empowered woman. So it’s not necessarily something that I want to only do, and I wouldn’t only want to do a comedy for the rest of my life either, but the fact that I get to play these kind of women I think is very attractive.

Frontiere(s) director Xavier Gens’ apocalyptic thriller The Divide gets a release today in Toronto and Winnipeg, the city in which it was filmed. Genre stalwart Michael Biehn (Aliens, The Terminator) stars as the caretaker of an apartment building who takes several residents into the building’s basement shelter when nuclear war devastates the outside world. But dwindling supplies and hope leads to a breakdown of both civility and civilization.

The DLB recently spoke to Gens from Morocco where he was filming a commercial.

EXCLUSIVE! KATE BECKINSALE TALKS “UNDERWORLD AWAKENING”: PART ONE

Posted in Fetish, Goth, Interviews, Monsters, Movies, Sequels, Vampires, Violence, Werewolves with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 18, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

The DLB recently spoke to Underworld Evolution star Kate Beckinsale about the fourth entry in the ongoing werewolf/vampire franchise. Here are a few excerpts:

 

After you made Underworld Evolution, how did you feel about the possibility of making another Underworld film, and at what point did playing Selene again start to seem like a good idea?

Well, I didn’t think I was going to. I was told that the plan was to do a trilogy. I knew that the third one was a prequel and my character wasn’t around for that. I honestly didn’t think about it at all apart from occasionally when I was promoting another movie somebody would ask me about it, and I’d constantly say, ‘No, no, no. That’s it,’ because I thought it was! So it was only a little before we shot the movie that they came and asked, ‘Would you think about it?’ And I thought, well, okay, but it would have to be quite a different journey for the character to go on to make it interesting for people to watch and also to play the part.

WRETCHED REVIEWS: THE DEVIL INSIDE

Posted in Devils, Gore, Movies, Reviews, Violence with tags , , , , on January 6, 2012 by darklordbunnykins

THE DEVIL INSIDE

Starring Fernanda Andrade, Suzan Crowley and Simon Quarterman

Directed by William Brent Bell

Written by William Brent Bell & Matthew Peterman

Paramount

 

It’s not that The Devil Inside could not have been an entertaining film. The idea of a young woman (Andrade) traveling to Rome to find out the truth about why her mother was committed to a mental hospital in Rome after killing three people twenty years earlier in what appears to be an exorcism gone wrong holds promise. But coming as it does thirteen years after The Blair Witch Project, two years after Paranormal Activity, and one year after The Rite, the idea of a found footage exorcism movie seems about as fresh as the pea green puke Reagan projectile vomited onto Father Karras in The Exorcist back in 1973.
