Right when you thought this franchise was finished, Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment have released a brand new trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars. This will be the fifth film in the long-running franchise featuring the return of Kate Beckinsale as Selene.
Stick To Your Guns
Many franchises are rebooting themselves and reinventing the wheel. However, Blood Wars looks like its sticking to what it does best: Guns, Vampires, Lycans, and…more guns. In this outing, Selene will be ending the Vampire and Lycan’s eternal war with the help of Theo James‘ David and her father. While the trailer doesn’t offer anything new, if you enjoyed the last four films you most likely will enjoy this one. Plus isn’t lead female action heroes a thing now?
First Feature Film?
Anne Foerster is taking the helm of Blood Wars. Her previous directorial outings have mostly consisted of television shows like Criminal Minds and Outlanders. While she might not have much feature film experience, this film will prove her might for future titles. She will also be working on a future sequel to Source Code, which is exciting.
The screenplay for Underworld: Blood Wars is written by Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter, Priest) and based on characters originally created by Kevin Grevioux, Len Wiseman and Danny McBride. Lakeshore Entertainment’s Tom Rosenberg (The Lincoln Lawyer, Million Dollar Baby), Gary Lucchesi (Million Dollar Baby, Underworld), and Richard S. Wright (The Lincoln Lawyer, Underworld) are producing along with David Kern (Underworld: Awakening) and Len Wiseman (Underworld, Total Recall).
Underworld: Blood Wars will release on January 6, 2017.
