Kate Beckinsale Returns in First Trailer for 'Underworld: Blood Wars'

"This day was bound to come." Sony's Screen Gems has unveiled the first official trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars, the fifth movie in the Underworld series that originally started in 2003 with the action movie starring Kate Beckinsale. Beckinsale is back, again, to play vampire death dealer Selene fighting to finally, hopefully, end the eternal war between the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. The cast includes Lara Pulver, Theo James, Charles Dance, Tobias Menzies and Trent Garrett. Selene was the star of the first two films, then disappeared until 2012's Underworld: Awakening in an attempt to get people to care about the series again. I'm still not interested, and it still looks too dark (visually) and boring.

Here's the first trailer for Anna Foerster's Underworld: Blood Wars, direct from YouTube:

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 is directed by filmmaker Anna Foerster, a cinematographer turned director making her feature debut after work on "Outlander" and "Criminal Minds". The screenplay is by Cory Goodman. Screen Gems will release Underworld: Blood Wars in theaters starting on January 6th, 2017 early next year. Anyone?
