UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS on DVD and Blu-ray

The prequel story traces the origins of the centuries-old blood feud between the aristocratic vampires known as Death Dealers and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, a young Lycan named Lucian (Sheen) emerges as a powerful leader who rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and his struggle for Lycan freedom.

From Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS features vfx from Duran-Duboi, Luma Pictures, Intelligent Creatures, Celluloid and Furious FX.

A veteran of the two previous movies, Visual Effects Supervisor James McQuaide enjoyed a great collaboration with Tatopoulos. "One of the unique pleasures of UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS (UW3) was working with a director who had both production designed UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION (UW2) and had designed/built all the creatures for all of the UNDERWORLD pictures. As a result, there was a knowledgeable attention to detail that provided the visual effects (and the movie, for that matter) with a level of reality that it very likely would never have had. Patrick knew exactly the shape of the werewolves' necks, precisely how he wanted the werewolves to move their hind legs when they ran, where the CG rocks that we added to the meadow in front of the fortress should be placed, what the clouds in the fortress assault sequence should look like, etc. And that he could draw what he was looking for, made its execution immeasurably easier." During production, McQuaide worked alongside On Set VFX Supervisor Charlie McClellan.

Special Features Include:

-- UNDERWORLD RISE OF THE LYCANS -- From Script to Screen Featurette -- Director Patrick Tatopoulos, and Producers Len Wiseman, Gary Lucchesi, Tom Rosenberg and Richard Wright discuss all aspects of the filmmaking process and how RISE OF THE LYCANS came to life as a prequel from script to screen.-- The Origin of the Feud Featurette -- Rhona Mitra, Michael Sheen, Bill Nighy, Director Patrick Tatopoulos and Producers Len Wiseman, Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg examine the relationship between Lucian, a Lycan slave and, Sonja, Elder Viktor's daughter, and how their forbidden love began the deadly feud.-- Re-Creating the Dark Ages: The Look of UNDERWORLD RISE OF THE LYCANS -- Director and special effects veteran Patrick Tatopoulos takes us through his process of creating the look of the prequel by building on the aesthetics established in the first two films.-- Filmmaker Audio Commentary -- With Director Patrick Tatopoulos and Producers Len Wiseman, Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg-- Music Video -- "Deathclub (Wes Borland/Renholder Remix)" By William Control Feat. Matt Skiba

Blu-ray-Exclusive Special Features:

-- A Digital Copy of the film for PC, PSP, Mac or iPod-- Picture-in-Picture Commentary -- Take a behind-the-scenes look into the pre-visualization process and delve into a storyboard to animatic to film comparison with Director Patrick Tatopoulos, the VFX Supervisor and pre-viz technicians.-- Interactive map -- Interactive map of werewolf sightings around the world over the last five centuries. Users can select locations in the United States, Asia and Europe on a map to learn about specific sightings and local lore.-- CineChat: Send on-screen instant messages to your friends around the world while you watch the movie together.
