Underworld Awakening brings a stunning new dimension to the epic battle between the Vampires and Lycans, as the first film in the franchise to shoot in 3D. Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both the Vampire and Lycan clans and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.
