UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS
Underworld: Blood Wars, the newest installment of the blockbuster franchise,
finds Vampire Death Dealer Selene (Kate Beckinsale) fending off brutal attacks
from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that has betrayed her. Aided by
her only allies, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), she
must end the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means making
the ultimate sacrifice.
The fifth film in the hugely successful action-horror series picks up the action
where Underworld Awakening left off. The Lycans have found a powerful new leader
in Marius (Tobias Menzies), who has injected a fanatical sense of purpose and
discipline into their previously ragtag ranks. Marius will stop at nothing to
track down Selene in order to learn the whereabouts of her daughter Eve, a
Joined by David, Selene barely manages to elude her Lycan trackers until a truce
negotiated by David's father Thomas allows her to take refuge at the Eastern
Coven, ruled by the ambitious Semira (Lara Pulver). In abject fear of the
escalating Lycan threat, Selene's former Vampire adversaries hope her legendary
fighting skills will help them eradicate the Lycan scourge once and for all. But
when Selene discovers that some of her Eastern protectors have traitorous
agendas of their own, she and David are on the run again, forced to seek
sanctuary behind the walls of the mysterious Nordic Coven, a peaceful sect of
Vampires living in monk-like seclusion in the northernmost regions of the earth.
But their newfound sense of security in the snow-covered lands of Var Dohr is
fleeting, for wherever Selene goes, the centuries-old war between Vampires and
Lycans always follows.
