About Underworld Awakening

Underworld Awakening brings a stunning new dimension to the epic battle between 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 Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.

Directed by Marlind & Stein. The film is produced by Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, Len Wiseman, and Richard Wright. Based on characters created by Kevin Grevioux and Len Wiseman & Danny McBride. Story by Len Wiseman & John Hlavin. The screenplay was written by Len Wiseman & Hlavin and J. Michael Straczynski and Allison Burnett.
