Underworld: Blood Wars trailer arrives, as the war between the Lycans and Vampires wages on.

Sony Pictures has sent over the first trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars, featuring the return of Kate Beckinsale as Selene.

I rather liked the first entry into the Underworld franchise, from Danny McBride and Len Wiseman, but since then – and over the course of four movies – it’s been a bit hit and miss. It’s also worth noting that another director is on board for this instalment, with Anna Foerster taking the helm.

The first two entries into the saga – Underworld and Underworld: Evolution – were directed by Len Wiseman, but since then, the franchise has changed hands more than once, with Underworld: Rise of the Lycans having being directed by Patrick Tatopoulos and Underworld: Awakening by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein.

Underworld: Blood Wars follows Selene as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. Joined by her only allies, David and his father Thomas, she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.

If there’s one thing Underworld: Blood Wars has going for it, then it is its cast, of which includes Charles Dance (HBO’s Game of Thrones, Gosford Park), Theo James (Underworld: Awakening, Allegiant), Lara Pulver (Edge of Tomorrow, Starz’s Da Vinci’s Demons), Tobias Menzies (HBO’s Game of Thrones, Starz’s Outlander), Bradley James (BBC’s Merlin, A&E’s Damien), and James Faulkner (Bridget Jones’ Diary, Starz’ Da Vinci’s Demons).

Produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and Sketch Films, Underworld: Blood Wars will feature screenplay by Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter, Priest) and Jayson Rothwell (Silent Night, Malice in Wonderland). It will be Foerster’s first feature film.

Having originally been scheduled to be released by Screen Gems this year, it has since been moved to 2017. It won’t be the last we see of Beckinsale’s Death Dealer, Selene, either. A six movie is already in development.
