Underworld

Sept. 20
By Beth Accomando and Cinema Junkie by Beth Accomando

In Underworld, Beckinsale plays Selene, a vampire warrior whos devoted herself to hunting down Lycans since she believes they slaughtered her family. The vampires scored a major victory a few hundred years back when they disposed of the Lycan leader Lucian. Now the vampire warriors have hunted their enemy to the brink of extinction. Or have they? Selene discovers a gathering of the wolfen creatures and suspects that they are gearing up for an attack. Caught in the crossfire is Michael (Scott Speedman), a human that they Lycans think may be the key to their rejuvenation if they can turn him. The handsome human also catches Selenes eye. A human-vampire romance is scandal enough but when Michael is turned by the Lycans, Selenes affection for him really challenges centuries of prejudice.
