FILM: Underworld: Awakening 3D (18)

Prior to starring alongside Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel in the big-budget remake of Total Recall, Kate Beckinsale squeezes back into her skin-tight leathers as an avenging vampire in Underworld: Awakening.

The fourth chapter in the franchise, which began in 2003, is set more than a decade after the events of the third film Underworld: Evolution.

Governments around the world and the public learn of the existence of Vampires and Lycans, and the bitter war that has raged unseen for centuries between the two immortal clans.
