Fans of the Underworld franchise will no doubt be keen to see Underworld: Blood Wars, which brings back Kate Beckinsale’s Selene on a mission to stop the war between Lycans and Vampires for once and for all.
The new trailer shows off plenty of action, with Selene this time earning herself some nifty new powers. There’s high-energy stuff going on, but it’s all very familiar, which could bode well for fans that have been following the series since the first film dropped in 2003. Yep, it’s been 13 years already. Fingers crossed it isn’t too tiresome for those approaching it without much to go on.
Underworld: Blood Wars, also starring Theo James, Charles Dance, Lara Pulver, Tobias Menzies, Bradley James and James Faulkner, arrives in Australia on December 1 and hits the US on January 6.
Synopsis for Underworld: Blood Wars:
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.
