For a thousand years vampires and werewolves have fought a bitter war.  Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is among the vampires committed to destroying lycanthropes.  She has discovered a secret that jeopardizes the fate of both species, however.  The vampires' leader, Kraven (Shane Brolly) is conspiring with the head of the werewolves, Lucian (Michael Sheen) to create a half-man half-vampire hybrid.  To prevent this, Selene must summon Viktor (Bill Nighy), an ancient vampire noble.

Kraven and Lucian's target is a young man named Michael (Scott Speedman), a werewolf in the making.  A forbidden romance forms between Selene and Michael, creating an additional layer of complications.

Underworld was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards.  The picture earned an impressive $95 million internationally.
