Underworld Delayed

Kate Beckinsale’s latest outing as the vampire Selene has been pushed back from the second half of 2016 and into early 2017. The new film will reunite her with Theo James who appeared in Underworld: Awakening, with direction by relative newcomer Anna Foerster. Underworld: Bloodwars is the fifth film in the Underworld series which has been running since 2003, the move takes the film closer to its traditional early in the year release window, which has likely benefited the series by keeping it away from strong opening weekend competition.

There were earlier reports that Kate Beckinsale would not return for Bloodwars, and there has been further speculation that this will be her final Underworld outing. Whether that turns out to be true, we’ll have to wait and see.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
