Everyone’s Getting Upgraded in the New ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ Trailer
The wars in the next Underworld movie (can you believe there are five of these now???) are about blood, as evidenced by the subtitle “Blood Wars.” But whose blood? Selene’s, of course, who else’s? According to this new trailer, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is “the purest of them all,” although she says she’s not that pure. The Lycans have a new leader, and he believes that drinking Selene’s blood will give him powers stronger than any Lycan has ever had before.
But that’s not all: apparently it’s possible for vampires to level up too. When Selene realizes she won’t be able to battle this new threat with just guns and leather jumpsuits, she learns she has to travel north and be reborn as an Ultra Cool And Fast Vampire with ombre hair in order to defeat the Lycans’ new leader. Obviously, lots of fighting ensues. Fans of both Underworld and Game of Thrones have a lot to be excited for, as two Game of Thrones alumni — Charles Dance and Tobias Menzies — have joined the cast, as well as Divergent’s Theo James and Sherlock’s Lara Pulver.
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.
Underworld: Blood Wars hits theaters January 6, 2017.
