With the release of the trailer, for the latest entry into the UNDERWORLD Franchise, UNDERWORLD: BLOODWARS, we see the return of some old friends. It features Kate Beckinsale back in action as Selene, the vampire regulator — who continues to fight to end the war between the Lycan and Vampire.
If you’re a fan of the first three films, then you’re already in. The films have stayed consistent to the look, style, and ambience that come along with an UNDERWORLD film. As soon as you see that blue hue, coupled with some amazing images of Beckinsale taking on Lycan and vampire alike, you know you’re seeing an Underworld flick.
Here’s the official synopsis — provided by the wonderful people at Sony:
The next installment in the blockbuster franchise, UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS 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.
The film is directed by Anne Foerster and is written by Cory Goodman & Jayson Rothwell — Goodman also wrote THE LAST WITCH HUNTER and PRIEST, while Rothwell is credited for writing the characters and story for the UNDERWORLD films.
Seriously though, I’m a huge fan of werewolves so any indication or version of them that I can get, I will take. I know there have been werewolf flicks that have come out recently, but when you grew up watching practical flicks like AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, THE HOWLING, or SILVER BULLET it’s kind of hard to set your eyes on a CGI beast. Times are changing and so are flicks — for better or worse. With that being said, I always look forward to the UNDERWORLD films because the highly stylized action sequences and gothic imagery are amazing.
