So Sony supposedly in January is doing Underworld again. The limited edition is supposedly out in Jan, 19.94 SRP, the Extended Unrated plus an Evolution preview disc. Is this the same cut with an Evolution promo or something else entirely? I can't fathom a triple dip on this, any word?

Wouldn't it actually be a quadruple dip at this point? There was the original release (OAR and MAR, but it's probably fair to count that as a single "dip"), the Superbit edition, and the extended edition. DJ

It was a cool movie, but it really isn't even worth a double, triple and certainly not a quadruple dip, IMO. Even at $10, the SB wasn't worth it already. I sold the original version when the SE came out.

Why do superhuman supernatural beings like these vampires and werewolves need... guns to kill each other? I never understood that. But, I forgive so much for my Kate in tight black vinyl... MC

I thought Kate looked better in Van Helsing though, but she's pretty much the main reason why I went to see and purchased UW Posted Image

Hmm. But a werewolf IS vulnerable to a silver bullet, no? Actually, I think that folkloric tradition renders any number of supernatural beings vulnerable to a silver bullet, but its specific association arose from the 1941 WOLF MAN film. Anyway, guns are de rigueur in Hollywood, eh? But I agree that it's lame to think a gun could kill, say, Count Orlock! No!
He's got the bit between his teeth... all right!

Hey, what's it matter whether someone's head is taken off by a blade or an Uzi? The way I figure it, it's lame to think vampires and vampire hunters would still be using wooden sticks while the rest of the world is availing themselves of far more effective weapons.

Yeah man, nobody ever heard of using fire agaist them? Posted Image If they have the technology to create those cool bullets, then why can't they just come up with better weapons?

Same reason all movies get REreleased on DVD when a SEQUEL is about to be released... If you don't already own the extended cut, this is a good opportunity to get it + some additional stuff for U: Evolution. I wonder if a free movie ticket will be included? I just ordered the SUPERBIT b/c of the BB sale. I'd get a Trilogy DVD boxset once the 3rd film is done, supposively they want to do a trilogy?
