Trailer Time: Underworld Blood Wars (2017) *Beckinsale, Vampires, and Werewolves…SWEET!*

I have loved the Underworld series since the first installment.  You have vampires.  You have werewolves (Lycans).  You have them fighting a war through the ages.  You have Kate Beckinsale in skin-tight leather.  You can call them a guilty pleasure, but I the first 2017 movie I see is probably going to be the fifth (and likely final) film in the franchise, Underworld: Blood Wars.

The next installment in the blockbuster franchise, UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS follows Vampire death dealer, Selene (Beckinsale) as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (James) and his father Thomas (Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Not every film has to be about Oscars and advancing the craft.  Some films are allowed to just be fricking cool, and I’ll be there when it opens January 17, 2017.

One thought on “Trailer Time: Underworld Blood Wars (2017) *Beckinsale, Vampires, and Werewolves…SWEET!*”

  1. There are no guilty pleasures like vampire guilty pleasures, but I tend to like my vampires totally evil, even when it comes to self-aware, campy excersises like From Dusk Till Dawn and John Carpenter’s Vampires. The relationship between vampires and vampire hunters is a perfect expression of the eternal conflict between good and evil (and if you don’t buy that, From Dusk Till Dawn features Cheech Marin in something like five different roles).

    But try to tell a story from the vampire’s point of view, and you’ve lost me. Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula is almost one of my favorite movies, because of the profoundly bizzare and unique visual aesthetic, but it comes too close to making Dracula too sympathetic.

    I only saw the first Underworld, but I would have liked it better if neither side had been positioned as the good guys. From what I remember, the vampires were clearly the ones you were supposed to be rooting for.

    Hope life is treating you well.
