(WSVN) - So now it’s time to look ahead to the movies of this year. Two films hit theaters this weekend — one with a good monster and the other with some very bad vampires. Here’s a look in this week’s Showtime.
Kate Beckinsale (as Selene): “I’m finished with this war.”
Theo James (as David): “Well it’s not finished with you. He wants the blood of you and your daughter.”
“Underworld: Blood Wars” is the fifth installment in the series. Kate Beckinsale is back as Selene, a vampire death hunter who is still fighting off the Lycans, who are sort of half-man, half-werewolf-looking beasts. As the title suggests, it’s a war for Selene’s blood — and if they get it, they’ll be invincible.
Chris Van Vliet: “I always wonder in these movies, what does that blood taste like?”
Kate Beckinsale: “I think what it is is the syrup you make cotton candy out of.”
Chris Van Vliet: “This sounds amazing.”
Kate Beckinsale: “It’s actually not terrible. It just sticks in your armpit. You don’t want it in anywhere that touches other skin.”
Chris Van Vliet: “Why would it be in your armpit?”
Kate Beckinsale: “Because it goes down your thing, down your costume and pools in your armpit. Hazard of the job.”
Lewis MacDougall (as Conor): “How does the story begin?”
Liam Neesen (The Monster): “With a boy too old to be a kid.”
Felicity Jones and Sigourney Weaver star in “A Monster Calls.”
The film tells the story of a young boy who finds a friend in a tree monster voiced by Liam Neeson.
It’s a heartwarming tale of love and loss.
Sigourney Weaver: “It’s just very hard for her to express her love, and the great thing about this story is it shows how in the course of an experience like this, a family can come together.”
Toby Kebbell (as dad): “Most of us just get messily ever after, and that’s all right. Even I’m happy you turned out like her.”
