The recently released trailer for the new 'Underworld' film shows Kate Beckinsale partially nude in her role as the vampire Selene. This fourth installment of the sci-fi franchise, 'Underworld: Awakenings,' is produced by her husband Len Wiseman, who directed the first two 'Underworld' films.
After being held in a coma-like state for 12 years, Kate escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of vampires and Lycans (half werewolf, half humans) and are trying to eradicate both species.

Much of the trailer shows Kate in her leather cat suit and bright blue contact lenses as she engages in combat against her attackers, performs a few supernatural acrobatic stunts, flees from explosions and faces a ferocious-looking monster.
The film sees a return for Kate, who did not appear in the third 'Underworld' film, which was a prequel to the first two movies. She recently told Collider.com: “Initially, it was conceived as a trilogy, and the third one was always going to be a prequel where I wasn’t born. Like everybody, I and Len [Wiseman] and most people who are sensible, have a slight allergy to the number four coming after a movie title because it usually means it’s s***.”
