Smashing success patterns prompted the director to shoot the continuation saga about vampires and werewolves, "Underworld 2: Evolution".

DIRECTOR Len Wiseman ("Underworld"):

What you decide to change or add to the "Underworld 2", given the experience in the production of the first film?

The first film was a breakdown of the pen and, logically, that much I knew and I had little experience. Filmed in Budapest, and in my team were only 15 people who spoke in English - it was quite difficult to communicate. I made a lot of the first film. With the increased budget for the second film I came up with grandiose ideas, and I managed to achieve, I think, much better.

At what point did you decide to do a sequel?

As soon as the idea - I realized that I could not fit the whole saga and, therefore, already considering a sequel and a prequel, but it was only a distant plans. After evaluation of box-office receipts have laid siege to the studio with a proposal to shoot a sequel, and we began to think about their offer. And after the success of sales of the DVD doubt there could be, and we started to work.

What can you explain the similarity of the appearance of the characters in the film "Another World" and "Matrix"?

With regard to the style of the trilogy "The Matrix", then I will not hide, I like black and dark imaging in general. Generally, it is very funny: when I watched video of the film "Matrix", I said to myself: "How can they" rip off "suits at the" Blade "?", And when I saw "Blade" I said "How can they copy clothing from the Terminator 2? ". Do not forget about "Ketvuman. I think that after the "Matrix" black skin has become the standard for all, so that disputes are irrelevant.
