As one of the film's promotional partners, Snapchat's augmented reality, immersive experience is spreading awareness and excitement for the film. The 3D Lens transports users into Underworld and drops them into a 360-degree environment. By panning to the sides, fans can explore the various worlds from the movie. In addition, the Lens transforms the user into a vampire similar to the film's lead character Selene, played by Kate Beckinsale.
Coming to theaters nationwide on January 6, 2017 from Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment, UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS 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 (played by Theo James) and his father Thomas (played by Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice. The film is directed by Anna Foerster, and the screenplay is by Cory Goodman, with story by Kyle Ward and Cory Goodman, and based on characters created by Kevin Grevioux and Len Wiseman & Danny McBride.
