Three years after Underworld: Awakening, the trailer for Underworld 5: Blood Wars has recently been released and it shows a fight to the death between the vampires and the werewolves called Lycans. Death dealer Selene later on becomes someone that is seemingly invincible as she takes on the enemy.
As the previous Underworld movies suggest, the vampires and lycans have never been on good terms. The trailer shows some clips from the previous movies; the train station from where vampire-lycan hybrid Michael Corvin was first seen, the former lycan leader Lucian and Selene and Michael’s daughter Eve.
The title Blood Wars is enough to explain the plot of the 5th installment of the franchise, according to Cinema Blend. It is action packed, as the remaining vampires stick to their guns and weapons and as the trailer shows, the lycans have a new leader who goes by the name of Marius.
The war between the vampires and lycans is still ongoing with Selene right in the middle of it. As Variety suggests, Selene’s look remains the same all throughout the franchise but in the latter part of the trailer she sports some blonde highlights and a fur coat over her black leather catsuit. The additions to her appearance gives viewers a little hint that she has acquired some kind of power apart from her vampire attributes and the Corvinus strain that allows her to walk in broad daylight.
Underworld co-creator Len Wiseman remains on board as one of the movie’s producers. Anna Foerster is at the helm as director, Underworld 5 being her feature debut.
Kate Beckinsale stars as Selene, the death dealer whose blood is supposedly the key to winning the war.
Underworld 5: Blood Wars also stars Theo James, Tobias Menzies, Trent Garrett, Lara Pulver, Clementine Nicholson, Bradley James and Charles Dance.
Underworld 5: Blood Wars premieres on January 6, 2017.
