Even if you can’t understand what is being said in the newest international trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars, don’t fret. You don’t have to speak the same language to see how action-packed the latest vampire versus lycan film will be.
This January, fans will finally see the fifth installment of the Underworld franchise hit theaters. Talent like Kate Beckinsale will return to the series as the actress suits up to shoot out from unsavory werewolves. The movie will follow protagonist Selene as she delves back into the bloody war between vampires and lycans, but she will first need to acquire some new and impressive powers before squashes the conflict.
Earlier this year, ComicBook.com’s Dallas Jackson had a chance to speak with the stars of Underworld: Blood Wars at New York Comic Con. It was there that Beckinsale talked about the new project and said, “If you make a fifth one [film], you want to make it one worth doing.”
Hopefully, fans of the franchise will side with the actress when Underworld: Blood Wars hits theaters and find the story to be an intriguing and electrifying one.
