For centuries, two races have evolved hidden deeply within human culture - the aristocratic, sophisticated Vampires, and the brutal, feral Lycans (werewolves). To humanity, their existence is no more than a whisper of a myth. But to each other, they are the lifelong mortal rivals, sworn to wage a secret war until only one race is left standing.
In the midst of this ongoing struggle, a Vampire warrior, Selene (Kate Beckinsale), discovers a Lycan plot to kidnap a young human doctor. After shadowing Michael (Scott Speedman) through the city, she forms an unprecedented bond with him, and when the Lycans make their next move, Selene is there to try to fend off their vicious assault.
As she races to save Michael and unravel the Lycan plot surrounding him, Selene discovers a secret that has terrifying repercussions for both tribes - a plot to awaken a new invincible species of predator that combines the strengths of both creatures and the weaknesses of neither, which threatens to tip the balance of power in favor of the werewolves, who have been on the losing end of the struggle for centuries.
Kate Beckinsale (SERENDIPITY, PEARL HARBOR) and Scott Speedman (DARK BLUE, FELICITY - TV series) star in a sweeping tale of deadly action, ruthless intrigue and forbidden love, all set against the backdrop of an ancient feud between the two tribes in a timeless, Gothic metropolis.
Selene must now decide where her loyalties lie as the end of an eternal war finally beckons.
