To Do....

...and sleep...

Just to prove how tired I really was after a lot of non-stop work recently and with Spiele in Essen thrown in over the last few days my body told me to get some rest around 6/7pm-ish last night and and I slept for about 12 hours. I usually sleep about 6 or 7 on average. I was well and truly wiped.

Still, I'm now up nice and early on a Sunday morning - having technically been given 1 hours free sleep courtesy of shifting from Biritsh Summer Time back to GMT for the winter months - and have the whole day ahead of me to catch up on a load of work backlog. I *might* see about treating myself to a movie later this mroning or early afternoon depending on how well I'm doing.

Hopefully last nights sleep will have perked me up for the rest of the week now!

(Trailer) Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

The Underworld franchise is returning to the screens in early 2009 with a look back at the past. The story of the Lycan Uprising is explored - which we'd been told about in previous films. No Kate Beckinsale - her character hasn't been born as of that time - but Bill Nighey returns as Viktor and Michael Sheen as Lucian - the werewolf who falls in love with the vampire Sonja (played by Rhona Mitra) who is Viktor's daughter.

Change also at Director level with Patrick Tatopoulos taking over the reins from Len Wiseman. Patrick is much better known as a special effects guy and has previously worked on a host of films such as Silent Hill, I Am Legend, the earlier Underworld films, Pitch Black, Stargate, 10000 BC to name but a few. So the film should look stunning.

So, if you are up for some dark ages vampire vs werewolf action then I guess you'll be as eager as me to see this film on the big screen when it's released :)
