Underworld 2: Evolution
In Underworld Evolution, the long-running feud between vampires and werewolves takes on new dimensions as a blood feast, a battle of forbidden love and a time for spectacular revenge begin. Carefully guarded secrets have been revealed, and the determination of one betrayed vampire warrior has rekindled the flame of a centuries-long war between vile predators. An insatiable undying desire to discover the root cause of the feud between vampires and werewolves uncovers disturbing new facts. The past, in short, was very messy, and the future may reveal an entirely new race, one that has never been seen before. As the saga continues, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) seeks out vampire king Marcus (Tony Curran), hoping to bargain for her life with him. The mongrel Michael (Scott Speedman) joins Selene in her fight, only he doesn't trust himself because he can't tame the werewolf blood within him, so Selene rejects his alliance. The moment Marcus ambushes Selene so he can destroy her, their love proves to be stronger than genetics. In the ensuing struggles, Selene discovers that she has been betrayed by her own family and decides to seek revenge.
Selene seeks out Adrian Tanis (Steven Mackintosh), a vampire chronicler, to help her penetrate the web of lies spread by Marcus and Victor (Bill Nighty) as they fight for the ruling position. Things get complicated when Tanis uncovers the origins of the first true immortal. Contrary to expectations, it is neither Marcus nor Victor, but Alexander Corvinus (Derek Jacobi), the father of Marcus and his twin brother, William. An omnipresent god, Corvinus has watched everything from afar, covering up the traces of the fighting so that his descendants can remain hidden from the human race. Side by side, Selene and Michael fight against the immensely powerful and determined Marcus, who has decided to set his imprisoned brother William free and use his bloodlust to take over the world. Each confrontation reveals new truths, sheds harsh light on previous events and delves into the painful memories of those buried in the past. Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman reappear in the sequel to Underworld; enriching the legend with new insights, revealing new secrets and possibly a new race far more powerful than any before.
