Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Selene wishes to expose the truth about the death of Viktor to the first true vampire Marcus that is hibernating. However, Marcus has already awakened and wants to release his savage Lycan brother William, who has been imprisoned for centuries. When Marcus tries to get the medal possessed by Lucian from Michael, Selene decides to visit Andreas Tanis, the exiled official historian of the covens, to understand his interest. When Selene and Michael meet Tanis, they disclose the truth about their bloodlines, and later with the support of Alexander Corvinus, Selene faces the powerful Marcus as the last hope left for the mankind.

- [from trailer] Tanis: You don't scare me, Selene. Selene: Well, we'll have to work on that.
[first lines] Marcus: My God. Brother, what have you done?
[William has been shot through his limbs by chains, and dragged to the ground. Marcus comes back unexpectedly.] Viktor: Marcus! Marcus: He was not to be harmed. Place him in my charge, as we agreed, or you will pay for your deceit. Viktor: And you will learn your place. Your sympathy for this beast is foolish. Your brother is entirely beyond control. It will be done *my* way. Marcus: You know well the consequences if your murder me. Or William. Viktor: If you so much as speak his name again you will have chosen that future for him. [Marcus looks to his sides - Viktor's warriors have their crossbows poised at him.] Marcus: What is thy will... my lord? Viktor: Imprisonment for all time. Far from you.
Marcus: Hello Father. Alexander Corvinus: You are unwelcome in my presence. Marcus: Ah. The predictable heart that never thaws. Pity it beats within such a fool. The eldest of the immortals, yet you have made no attempt to seize your destiny. Alexander Corvinus: We are oddities of nature, you and I. Nothing more! This is a world for humanity. Marcus: And that petty sentiment explains why you rejected your sons? Why you stood by for over half a millennium as William suffered alone in darkness? No, Father, I have no respect for your petty sentiment. Viktor's key. Where is it? Alexander Corvinus: Whatever plan you have for William is futile. You cannot control your brother. Marcus: Oh, I am stronger now. And our bond is greater than you have ever wanted to acknowledge. Alexander Corvinus: You're wrong. Soon you'll be drowning in Lycans just like before. Marcus: Oh, not Lycans, Father, or Vampires. A new race created in the image of their maker. Their new God. Me. [Marcus impales Alexander to the wall with his talon] Marcus: And a true God [picks up a sword] Marcus: has no father. [Marcus drives the sword through Alexander, then takes the key out of his top pocket] Alexander Corvinus: You will fail.
[Marcus has Kraven pinned to the wall by his talons] Kraven: Marcus? Marcus: The blood memories of this wretched creature... [indicates Singe's body] Marcus: ...have shown me that your treachery knows no bounds. Kraven: My lord, I can explain. Marcus: Why would I listen to your lies when the journey to the truth... is so much sweeter? [Marcus bites into his neck, and see's visions of Kraven's past, including his bargain with Lucian and Selene killing Viktor] Kraven: Please. I can assist you. Marcus: [smiles] Oh, you already have. [he pulls his talons free, then swipes Kraven's head off.]
- Had a 71-day shooting schedule.
Kate Beckinsale's chair had, instead of her name, "My Sweetie" on it surrounded by tiny hearts.
The name Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman) was originally the intended name for the main character in The Crow: City of Angels (1996), which was changed to the name Ashe Corven.
During the pub sequence, the presenter is reading out news on the television in Hungarian. In the first part (when it is only heard, not seen), the text explicitly refers to cheating discovered during the elections. In 2006 (the year of making) there were general elections in Hungary. The media campaign is already on in February, with the two largest parties accusing each other of criminal activity, lies, all in all they lead a very harsh negative campaign. As the present ruling power is a left-liberal and this movie has dozens of nationalistic connotations, this easter egg may not be incidental.
While filming a scene where Selene and Michael look at each other longingly, director Len Wiseman surprised the cast and crew by playing Bryan Adams' song "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)", at which everyone started laughing.
