Default Underworld (2003)


Selene (Beckinsale), a beautiful vampire warrior, is entrenched in a war between the vampire and werewolf races. Although she is aligned with the vampires, she falls in love with Michael (Speedman), a werewolf who longs for the war to end.
Background: 1400 years ago, Vampires had decided that the best way to ensure the survival of their species was for three Elders--Viktor, Marcus, and Amelia--to 'leap frog' through time, one ruling while the other two slept, each being awakened at their appointed time according to a never-to-be-broken covenant. 1,000 years ago, during the reign of Viktor, the oldest and strongest of the Elders, the Vampire-Lycan War began. 600 years ago, Kraven set the 'great blaze' which killed Lucian, the leader of the Lycans. Kraven brought back a brand cut from Lucian's arm as proof of his death, a deed which earned Kraven high favor with Viktor, who put Kraven in charge of their coven. The great blaze caused the Lycans to scatter. Vampire Death Dealers, armed with silver bullets and shuriken, have been picking Lycans off one by one until very few remain.

Present time: Three Death Dealers--Selene, Rigel, and Nathaniel -- follow two Lycans into the subway. A firey battle ensues in which Rigel is killed, one of the Lycans gets away, and Nathaniel comes up missing. In the fracas, Selene [Kate Beckinsale] makes two discoveries: 1) the Lycans have devised an ultraviolet bullet, and 2) there appears to be a large band of Lycans amassing under the subway. Selene hurries back to alert the Vampires, but they are more interested in the clothes they are going to wear at tonight's party with the coven from across the 'great ocean' in celebration of the upcoming awakening of Marcus by Amelia, the current reigning Elder. Not interested in their gaities, Selene views some digital photos Rigel took of the Lycans and notices that they appear to have been following a human. A computer search reveals the human is Michael Corvin [Scott Speedman], an intern at a local hospital. Meanwhile, the wounded Lycan` has returned to the Lycan den with the bad news that he lost the candidate he was tailing, as well as to have the silver bullets and stars dug out of his body so that he can regenerate.

Selene pays Michael Corvin's apartment a visit. While snooping, she overhears a phone message about his involvement in some 'shoot out.' Now convinced that she is right about the Lycans stalking Michael, she tries to interrogate him just as his apartment is raided by a pack of Lycans. While Selene holds them off, Michael escapes in the elevator, but the doors open to a face-to-face confrontation with Lucian [Michael Sheen], the current leader of the Lycans. Selene attempts to shoot Lucian, but he is intent on biting Michael and spitting the blood into a vial which he takes to Singe [Erwin Leder], who has been researching humans with the last name of Corvin, so far with negative results. He analyzes Michael's blood and pronounces it 'positive.'
