After four films, you'd be forgiven for wondering if the Underworld franchise has run out of steam. I mean, really, how long can one werewolf vs. vampire battle drag on for? The answer, according to this newly-released Underworld: Blood Wars trailer, is "For at least five installments".
Here ya go.
Full disclosure: of the four Underworld movies which have already been released, I have seen zero Underworld movies. So for all I know, this franchise has a rich, compelling mythology, and I'm the fool for having avoided it for this long. I don't think this is the case, but I will concede that it is a possiblity.
If you're wondering, here's where things stand in the Underworld timeline:
Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) fights to end the eternal war between the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her.
Is that not the same basic plot of every Underworld movie? Folks, tell me what I'm missing in the comments below.
Oh, and Underworld: Blood War opens on January 6th. Mark your calendars.
