Screen Gems/Lakeshore Entertainment sent us new images from Underworld: Blood Wars, opening in theaters on January 6, 2017.
Kate Beckinsale once again returns as Selene, while Theo James (Divergent) is also back as Selene’s ally David, reprising the role he played in Underworld: Awakening. British actors Tobias Menzies (“Outlander”, “Rome”) and Lara Pulver (“Sherlock”) take on the respective roles of a formidable new Lycan leader and a fiercely ambitious Vampire, and Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”) again plays Vampire elder Thomas.
I really dig these images that show some impressive stage work; it looks like a sequel to The Matrix. Beckinsale looks as good as ever, and it’s really great to see some shots of Anna Foerster directing the latest battle between the Vampires and Lycans.
Rounding out the film’s stellar international cast are: James Faulkner (“Game of Thrones”), Peter Andersson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), newcomer Clementine Nicholson, Bradley James (A&E’s upcoming “Damien”) and Daisy Head (the upcoming Fallen). Foerster, who previously directed episodes of the television series “Criminal Minds” and “Outlander,” is widely known for her work as cinematographer on epic blockbusters such as Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and White House Down.
The ten-week shoot took place entirely in the Czech capital and areas surrounding. Jon Barkan visited the set; you can read his report here.
