Underworld 5 trailer has crazy action

We really never expected the Underworld series to last as long as it has, but here we are thirteen years later and the fifth entry is getting ready to hit cinemas.

The movies have even mostly managed to retain a decent cast, with lead Kate Beckinsale only sitting out one entry - the rather fun Rise of the Lycans which still had Rhona Mitra, Michael Sheen and the delightful Bill Nighy.

2012's Awakening might even have been our favourite yet, with lashings of blood and a load of vampire nonsense set in the near future. Now it has a direct sequel which is all about blood.

Check out the trailer. It's kind of nuts.

That's a whole lot of lycans, and they're causing real trouble for Selene and the rest of the crew. Charles Dance lends some class and Game of Thrones and Outlander fella Tobias Menzies is the baddie. We're not so sure about that casting.

The film is the feature debut for director Anna Foerster, who has worked on Outlander and Criminal Minds, as well as shooting stuff for Roland Emmerich for many years. In cinemas in Ireland in January, 2017.
