Underworld Wiki

The Warehouse was a location that appears in Underworld: Evolution. It was part of an abandoned mining facility[1], located somewhere in the wooded mountain area outside of Budapest. It was closed years earlier due to "environmental concerns".[2]

The mining complex consisted of the mine, the main building, the warehouse and a garage. The facility was accessible from an access road turnoff that connected the mining facility to a road that went through the mountains.

Underworld: Evolution

Selene and Michael Corvin, racing against time and the rising sun, crashed their truck into the warehouse in a desperate bid to keep Selene safe from the sun's rays. Once in the warehouse, Michael tore open several cans of black paint and covered the windows with them, hoping to block out the sun. He and Selene then hid in one of the semi-trailers left behind when the mine was closed.

Safe from enemy attacks for the moment, but emotions still running high, Selene and Michael acted on their affections for each other, consummating their relationship in the warehouse.

The warehouse acted as protection for Selene and Michael, keeping them safe from both the sun and their enemies. After having spent the day there, Michael fixed the truck and he and Selene then left the warehouse.


  • The love scene in the warehouse was originally intended to be longer and more explicit, including a moment where Selene's behind is visible, as well as her getting on top of Michael as they continue to make love, but Kate Beckinsale was uncomfortable with the amount of nudity that was originally filmed, so she asked that the scene be watered down, especially since Len Wisemen feared that the love scene would get the movie an NC-17 rating, in addition to all the blood and gore. The studio cut the scene down, as the original scene was apparently filled with choppy edits that made it appear messy, though they were able to sneak two frames of the scene into the finished product when Marcus drinks Selene's blood.


  1. "An access road led to some sort of huge mining facility, which looked like an enormous brick warehouse built into the side of a mountain. An unmoving ore breaker climbed the slope to one side of the warehouse. Smokestacks rose from the roof of the complex, but Michael didn't see any fumes billowing from them." ~ Underworld: Evolution novelization, chapter 12
  2. "A sign posted just before the turnoff announced that the mine had been shut down due to environmental concerns, which probably explained the lack of activity." ~ Underworld: Evolution novelization, chapter 12
