I previously called Underworld: Blood Wars “Game of Thrones with vampires” due to its cast but we're getting close to parody with Tywin Lannister telling Selene to go North towards a wall of ice.
Kate Beckinsale is back for a fifth time as the Lycan hunter, this time directed by Anna Foerster. It's set to hit theaters on January 6, 2017 and Donna Dickens and I agree we'll see it no matter how “bad” it is. It's still good trashy fun. If I'm being honest, I don't even remember what happened in the last one but I'm sure they'll give a quick catch-up at the beginning of this one anyway.
Scott Speedman is not reprising his role as Michael this time; instead they've recast him with Trent Garrett. Underworld: Blood Wars also stars Game of Thrones actors Charles Dance and Tobias Menzies as well as Sherlock”s Irene Adler, Lara Pulver, and Theo James. Newcomer Clementine Nicholson is playing Lena, a warrior from a Nordic Coven.
Here's the official synopsis:
The next installment in the blockbuster franchise follows Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Who knew there were vampire super power levels to unlock? Will they all come together and live in peace at the end? Will there be a latex shortage?? We'll find out soon.
