The fifth installment of the popular series, in theaters January 6, 2017, follows Vampire death dealer, Selene 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.
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. 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).
Anna Foerster, who previously directed episodes of the television series “Criminal Minds” and “Outlander,” and is widely known for her work as cinematographer on epic blockbusters such as Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and White House Down, directed Underworld: Blood Wars from a screenplay by Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter, Priest), based on characters originally created by Kevin Grevioux, Len Wiseman and Danny McBride.
