Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment have released the trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars, the fifth film in the long-running franchise. You can watch the trailer below! The franchise sequel, which features Kate Beckinsale returning as Selene, will arrive in theaters on January 6, 2017.
Theo James (The Divergent Series) returns as Selene’s ally, David, reprising the role he played in Underworld: Awakening. British actors Tobias Menzies (Outlander, Rome) and Lara Pulver (Sherlock) take on the respective roles of a formidable new Lycan leader and a fiercely ambitious Vampire, and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) again plays Vampire elder Thomas. Rounding out the film’s stellar international cast are: James Faulkner (Game of Thrones), Peter Andersson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), newcomer Clementine Nicholson, Bradley James (Damien) and Daisy Head (Fallen).
As one could likely gather, there’s a whole lot of story going on here but the trailer thankfully keeps to what we’ve come to expect from the Underworld franchise, which is a lot of vampires and werewolves beating the bejesus out of each other, or simply murdering one another. The trailer itself looks amazing!
