Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans tops Box Office
With the box office results pouring in from this weekend, Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans has come in at number one, grossing $7.9 million. Coming in at #2 is the Kevin James Comedy, Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Check out the trailer for Underworld here.
Rise of the Lycans is the third film in the ongoing Underworld franchise and is a prequel of sorts, showing how the vampires came to war with their former-servants, the Lycan werewolves. With the popularity of the film franchise solidified, perhaps we can expect some good Underworld costumes to hit the market sometime soon? So far, only a movie-quality Underworld Selene cosplay costume is available, based off of Kate Beckinsdale’s vampire warrioress. (Actually, Kate Beckinsdale isn’t in this third installment. Go figure!)
However, there are several important characters that could deserve a turn with their own costumes made available to fans. If you have any ideas as to how to make some Underworld costumes… Head on over to the Costumzee forums to discuss the film or what costumes you’d like to see… or how to make ’em! For now, craft your own Lycan costume with werewolf prosthetic makeup or masks!
As Costumzee had predicted, it looks like 2009 is shaping up to be the Year of the Wolf! With Rise of the Lycans pulling in strong, first-week box office numbers and films like a remake of The Wolfman starring Benicio Del Toro and the X-Men: Wolverine film around the corner, these hairy hellhounds are hot!
