PopWatch Previewer: '17 Again,' 'Underworld 3,' and more!

Posted on

17 Again

Plot: Down-and-out 37-year-old falls off a bridge and magically comes back as a 17-year-old version of himself (Zac Efron).

Looks like:
Big, but backwards.

Verdict:
Funny, charming, AND occasionally shirtless — we’d say Efron is graduating from High School Musical with honors.

More previews after the jump…

Push

Plot: A group of super-powered mutants (Dakota Fanning, Chris Evans, Camilla Belle) fight bad guys.

Looks like:
Heroes. Or X-Men. Take your pick.

Verdict:
Points for offbeat casting, but we like our superheroes to be a little more… super.

Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans

Plot: A vampire aristocrat (Rhona Mitra) falls in love with a werewolf slave (Michael Sheen), who leads an uprising.

Looks like:
Gladiator goes to the Renaissance Faire.

Verdict:
Kate Beckinsale’s gone, but fantasy/horror fans can still get their fix of monsters, fangs, and hot vampire-on-werewolf action. (Hope they have a safe word!)
