A centuries-long blood feud erupts between two powerful and immortal tribes in Underworld: The Rise of The Lycans. The third film in the epic Underworld saga goes back in time to depict the origins of the conflict between the aristocratic Vampires, known as Death Dealers, and the barbaric Lycans, a line of fierce werewolves. With more eye-popping CGI and astounding creature effects than either of its predecessors, Underworld: The Rise of The Lycans reveals some of the hit franchise's most compelling secrets. We recently met up with actress Rhona Mitra to find out more about the making of this highly anticipated sequel.
