She began to seek film work in the United States in the late 1990s and, after appearing in small-scale dramas like ‘The Last Days of Disco’ in 1998 and ‘Brokedown Palace’ in 1999, she had starring roles in the war drama ‘Pearl Harbor‘ in 2001 and the romantic comedy ‘Serendipity‘.

In case, you were wondering what is the next Kate Beckinsale movie or tv show, you are in the right place. Here’s the list of upcoming Kate Beckinsale films scheduled to release in the near future. Hopefully, her new performances will be as good as her recent ones.
4. Jolt (2020)
‘Jolt’ is an outright action movie that should be right up Kate Beckinsale’s lane after she has made a name for herself with the ‘Underworld’ movies. Coming from Tanya Wexler with a story by Scott Wascha, the protagonist of this upcoming movie is a woman with anger management issues.
In fact, she serves as a bouncer, which is a great way to vent out anger at unruly drunk people. However, this bouncer’s anger management problems even make her murderous. The extent of the issue is clear when we understand that she has to put on an electrode-lined vest. Making use of the shocks from this vest, she remains normal, getting jolted out of her murderous phases. However, when the first man she falls in love with is killed, all bets are off the table. The vest comes off and the rage comes on, as this bouncer embarks on a rampage fueled by pure rage and revenge.
While she will stop at nothing to find the killer or killers responsible and make them pay, she does not realize that her anger issues have made her a suspect in the killing, and the law is after her. The premise is interesting and promises to be a fast-paced story. Beckinsale will probably be seen in the role of the bouncer so the story will rest on her acting, and action scenes. Knowing her, she will pull both off flawlessly. Also joining the cast is Bobby Cannavale, who is always a pleasure to watch.
3. The Widow (2019-)
On March 1, 2019, Amazon Prime Video premiered Kate Beckinsale’s new show, ‘The Widow.’ The fans can see a daring Beckinsale, as the widow Georgia Wells, fights rapists, badmen and other life-threatening situations. Georgia is a woman whose husband died three years ago in a plane crash. The remorseful widow lives a lonely life in a distant cabin in Wales. However, things take a turn when Georgia sees an image of her dead husband, Will Mason, flashing in some strange TV footage from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where he had disappeared after the crash three years ago.
She risks everything left in her as a woman and a fighter and embarks on a dangerous journey in search of the truth behind the TV footage. The series consists of eight episodes with the narrative oscillating back and forth through Georgia’s memory lane. She lives through the pain and joys from the couple’s past life, which includes the birth and death of their baby girl. Thoroughly convincing herself that Will is still alive, Georgia lands straight in the eye of a storm of bomb blasts, shootouts, rape threats, and all the more reason to make a Beckinsale fan eagerly wait for the upcoming season.
