I LOVED the “Underworld” film series and was actually only just looking into purchasing a Blu-ray set of the films for my media library. I wasn’t up to date as much as I might have liked about another installment for the franchise so that made the discovery of the trailer for the upcoming “Underworld: Blood Wars” all that much more special. Take a look at the trailer and some cast and then I’ll offer up some additional thoughts.
About The Film: Underworld: Blood Wars is an upcoming 2017 American action horror film directed by Anna Foerster and written by Cory Goodman. It is the fifth installment in the Underworld film series and the sequel to 2012 film Underworld: Awakening, with Kate Beckinsale reprising her role as Selene. The other main cast included Theo James, Tobias Menzies, Trent Garrett, Lara Pulver, Clementine Nicholson, Bradley James, and Charles Dance. Principal photography began on October 19, 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: What I loved about these films was that it was a lot of action-packed monster against monster stuff. Yeah sometimes the story line was a tad “out there” but how realistic should we expect stuff about vampires and werewolves to be anyway. I love Kate Beckinsale and think she would make a nice addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe if they can find a proper role for her to be so I will definitely be seeing this one in the theaters when it opens up in 2017. What did you readers think of this exciting trailer? Are you fans of this franchise at all? Let me know in the comments section below.
