‘Underworld’ Franchise Comes To 4K Ultra HD In October

by Thomas Tuna

One of the great constants in the horror genre is that vampires and werewolves don’t particularly like each other.

Of course, that’s the premise for the entire five-film Underworld franchise. And now, just in time for Halloween, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is bringing that collection home in one set in 4K Ultra HD, as reported by comicbook.com. The limited edition set will be available Oct. 5–in plenty of time to view them all before the big day.

The special box set release–priced at $95.99–includes UnderworldUnderworld: EvolutionUnderworld: Rise of the Lycans, Underworld: Awakening and Underworld: Blood Wars.

The films, as explained, have been fully remastered and include HDR and Dolby Atmos audio, plus the original theatrical audio mixes. The set also includes archival special features and rare featurettes that haven’t been previously available to fans.

The Underworld franchise–created by Len Wiseman, Kevin Grevioux and Danny McBride–follows characters caught up in a frenzied war between vampires and werewolves (or lycans). The original 2003 Underworld introduces Selene (Kate Beckinsale), an elite vampire warrior, and Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), a human who becomes involved in the conflict.

The series–which received generally negative reviews–still attained cult status with fans and earned $539 million on a combined budget of $207 million.

With Beckinsale recently saying she was not opposed to reprising her Selene role in another film, keep reading Horror News Network for the latest on any possible continuation of the Underworld franchise.
