The first four films in the series charting a battle for supremacy between vampires and werewolves. 'Underworld' (2003) stars Kate Beckinsdale as Selene, one of the sophisticated group of vampires known as Death Dealers who attempt to keep the feral Lycans (werewolves) in check. When Selene discovers a Lycan plot to kill one of the rare humans to have witnessed a vampire and werewolf battle, young doctor Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), she sets out to protect him and finds herself increasingly drawn to the doctor and the plot that surrounds him. In 'Underworld 2 - Evolution' (2006) Beckinsdale reprises her role as Selene. With Michael (Speedman) now half-werewolf and the vampire elder, Markus (Tony Curran), planning to awaken a long-lost brother who is a Lycan, Selene and Michael face a race against time to unlock the secrets of their bloodlines and prevent a potentially deadly war between the Lycans and Death Dealers. The events of 'Underworld: Rise of the Lycans' (2009) take place centuries before those of the original film and tell of the origins of the feud between the vampires and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. In the Dark Ages, charismatic young Lycan Lucian (Michael Sheen) rallies the werewolves to rise up against Viktor (Bill Nighy), the cruel vampire king who has enslaved them. Lucian is joined by his secret lover, Sonja (Rhona Mitra), in his battle against the Death Dealer army and quest for Lycan freedom. 'Underworld: Awakening' returns to the present day and the issues faced by vampire warrior Selene (Beckinsdale). When humans discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, Selene must escape imprisonment and lead the battle to protect both species from the threat of extermination by the forces of humanity. It may well prove her toughest challenge yet.
