Underworld: Blood Wars Trailer #3: Selene Is a Hero Reborn
Just a few weeks after the new poster for Underworld: Blood Wars debuted, Sony Pictures has unveiled the third trailer, packed with brand new footage from this action sequel, arriving in theaters early next year. The war between vampires and the lycans (werewolves) continues in this fifth installment of the Underworld franchise, which is shaping up to be its most explosive entry yet. As you can see in this trailer, while this war has been waged for quite some time, it's still just getting started.

The next installment in the blockbuster franchise, Underworld: Blood Wars 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 5 Poster Has Selene Ready to Protect Her Bloodline
Just days after the first trailer for Underworld Blood Wars arrived, we have the first poster as well, featuring Kate Beckinsale as Selene. This iconic character is seen sporting a different look, wearing winter gear as she goes hunting in the woods, presumably for her Lycan enemies. We still have a few months left until the January 6, 2017 release date, so we'll hopefully see much more of this iconic character either on new posters or trailers.

Kate Beckinsale herself debuted this poster on her Twitter page earlier today. This will mark the fifth installment of this beloved franchise, which started in 2003 with the hit Underworld, where Kate Beckinsale played the vampire Selene for the first time. This new installment also brings back Theo James as David from 2012's Underworld: Awakening.

Horror Sequel Underworld: Blood Wars Pushed Back To 2017

Kate Beckinsale’s triumphant return as Selene has been postponed, now that Screen Gems has opted to nudge Underworld: Blood Wars back three months and into 2017.

Once on course to scurry into theaters in time for October 14, 2016, the horror sequel (franchise revival?) has now been delayed until January 6, 2017.

Beckinsale is in line to return as the famed Vampire Death Dealer for the franchise’s fifth installment, rubbing shoulders with Divergent breakout Theo James as they navigate the historic battle between vampires and werewolves. Last time we saw the actress take point as the series’ badass lead she had reached the ripe old age of 632. That was Underworld: Awakening in 2012, though Screen Gems will surely be aiming for a more effective sequel in time for 2017.

This time around, it is Anna Foerster who will call the shots from behind the lens. Best known for helming episodes of Criminal Minds and Outlander,

Underworld 5 Delayed Until Early 2017

Underworld 5 Delayed Until Early 2017
Back in April, Screen Gems released the first teaser poster for Underworld Blood Wars, although it didn't featuring returning star Kate Beckinsale or any of the other cast members. Since the release date had already been set for October 14, most assumed that the first trailer was just around the corner, but the studio still hasn't released any footage as of yet. Today we found out why, with Screen Gems officially pushing the movie from October 14, 2016 to January 6, 2017.

Variety reported on the release date shift, but there was no reason given for why the date was pushed into 2017. In its new date on January 6, 2017, Underworld 5 will be going up against The Weinstein Company's Amityville: The Awakening, starring Bella Thorne and Universal Pictures' Mena, starring Tom Cruise. The first weekend of January is typically quite slow at the box office, but that could change next year, with three high-profile projects hitting theaters.

Sherlock Alum Lara Pulver Recruited For Horror Sequel Underworld 5

Despite all signs pointing to the franchise bowing out after 2012’s forgettable Awakening, the vampires vs werewolves saga rages on. Lakeshore Entertainment is poised to continue the cult horror series next year with the as-yet-untitled Underworld 5 – rumors suggest it may be branded as Next Generation – bringing back series stalwart Kate Beckinsale once again for the role of Selene.

She won’t be alone, however, with Divergent alum Theo James poised to star opposite the actress for Anna Foerster’s (Outlander) soft reboot along with, as of today, Sherlock and True Blood‘s Lara Pulver. An actress who is no stranger to the supernatural scene, Pulver is perhaps best known for her part as Claudine in HBO’s sexy horror series, while also appearing on Da Vinci’s Demons and the Tom Cruise-fronted actioner, Edge of Tomorrow.

Plot, story elements and Pulver’s exact role are being kept behind
