Cape Town - Universal Pictures has released the trailer for the fifth installment in the Scorpion King franchise, Scorpion King: Book of Souls, starring Pearl Thusi.

Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Pearl writes: "Another one. Are you ready?"

In the movie, the Scorpion King (Zach McGowan) teams up with a female warrior named Tala (Pearl Thusi), who is the sister of the Nubian King. Together they search for a legendary relic known as The Book of Souls, which will allow them to put an end to an evil warlord. 

While visiting the set on location in Cape Town in December, Channel24 asked Pearl,why viewers should watch the movie, to which she responded: "You're going to get a fast-paced, younger and edgier version of the Scorpion King franchise. It's a good story with beautifully structured characters. For women, men and young children."

In the trailer the former Quantico actress shows off her staff wielding skills and impressive combat moves. 


Scorpion King: Book of Souls is set for release on 24 October on Blu-ray, DVD and digital.
