U.S. director and writer of the original Blade and its sequel, Blade II, David S. Goyer, returns to the superhero genre with Blade: Trinity (2004).
Ryan Reynolds, Jessica Biel, Kris Kristofferson, Dominic Purcell, Parker Posey, and Triple H in his acting debut star alongside Wesley Snipes as Blade in this film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name.
The fight between humans and vampires rages on in this, the final book in the Blade trilogy. Danica Talos, head of the vicious vampires, is set on achieving victory at any cost, including framing Blade for a string of killings.
For Blade to defeat Dracula, his most formidable foe yet, he must join forces with a group of renegade vampire hunters.
Upon its initial release in the United States on December 8, 2004, Blade: Trinity received overwhelmingly positive reviews.
The film garnered largely unfavorable reviews from reviewers for its predictable themes, direction, and acting; it is the worst-reviewed film of the trilogy, grossing $132 million worldwide on a budget of $65 million.
Reynolds’ first superhero role and first cooperation with Marvel Entertainment, the film was followed by Blade: The Series in 2006. In 2012, Marvel was able to reclaim the rights to the character’s film adaptations.
