G4 has announced that the Blade Anime series will premiere on Friday, Jan. 13 at 11 p.m. (ET/PT).

Harold Perrineau stars as Eric Brooks, aka the supernatural Daywalker known as Blade, in the series, which will have 12 half-hour episodes.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Blade's mother was bitten by a vampire while pregnant, imbuing her unborn son with vampire strength and a thirst for blood, but without the vulnerability to sunlight. A master of weaponry with a desire to avenge the death of his mother, Blade finds himself in Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia in an effort to take down the evil villain, Deacon Frost. With vampire hunter Makoto at his side, they will stop at nothing to destroy Existence, a vampire organization with roots deeply embedded in Asia."

Blade serves as Marvel's final anime chapter with G4. Since debuting in October, as a part of G4's Friday night line-up, X-Men has reached more than 1.2 million total unique viewers, increasing 55 percent among G4's key demographic of males 18-49, while tripling with males 18-34.

Summit Entertainment has released two clips from The Darkest Hour, arriving in theaters on Dec. 23.

For the "Stuck" clip, CLICK HERE.

Here's how the movie is described:

"Welcome to Moscow.

"The Darkest Hour is the story of five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects from the minds of visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov and director Chris Gorak.

"Arriving amidst a mysterious lightening storm, young Internet entrepreneurs Sean (Emile Hirsch) and Ben (Max Minghella) land in the vibrant Russian capital to pursue their business dreams in the international economic center, full of new money but unscrupulous business practices. Travelers Natalie (Olivia Thirlby) and Anne (Rachael Taylor), stranded in Moscow by an unscheduled stop over en route to Nepal, make the best of it by seeking adventure in one of the nightlife capitals of the world.

The two pairs of best friends meet amid the glitz and glamour of the Zvezda Nightclub, the hot spot for the international and the beautiful in Moscow, including the young turk Skylar (Joel Kinnaman), the Swedish businessman who duped Sean and Ben. A mecca for the globe trotting youth, supermodels, and business elite congregating in Moscow, the club is quickly transformed to a scene of terror when the aliens invade and everything goes dark.

"After surviving the initial attack hiding underground, days later the five emerge into the confines of a Moscow that's become increasingly alien -- the once pulsating city is now without power and is all but deserted, yet occupied by a force they don't understand. Made up of electromagnetic wave energy, the alien beings kill brutally by shredding earthly life forms, reducing those in their way to their molecular structure instantly. The aliens are also basically invisible to humans, however anything electrical gives them away. Daytime is now dangerous, so the survivors learn to travel across the city in the safety of night, while confronting their individual reactions to these extraordinary circumstances where everything familiar is gone.

"Throughout their journey across a foreign city to find help, the dwindling band encounter various Russian survivors who help them start to unravel the mysteries of the near-invisible invaders, their goals and weaknesses, and most importantly, how to fight back.

"Courage survives."
