About Underworld Movie Script

The first movie in the Underworld trilogy was made in 2003. The story appeals to science fiction fans as well as those who enjoy stories about vampires and werewolves. The movie is about a centuries old war between vampires and werewolves, referred to as Lycans. In this story, vampires and Lycans trace their beginnings to the two sons of Alexander Corvinus. One of the sons was bitten by a bat and became the first vampire; the other was bitten by a wolf and became the first Lycan.

The central cast plot focuses on the conflict that arises when female vampire "death dealer" Selene has an experience that makes her question where her loyalties should lie. Selene meets and later falls in love with Michael, a human (who later becomes a Lycan) who is descended from Alexander Corvinus. The Lycans have a plot that involves using Michael's blood to eliminate the vampire race. Selene and Michael band together, along with other vampires, to prevent the Lycans from posing an even more deadly threat. During the movie, Selene questions the reasons for the war and begins to have doubts about which group deserves her loyalty.
