Underworld: Awakening (2012)

 
Concept featured in clip: Genetic Mutation/ cloning
Location of clip: (DVD)


Summary of clip: The lycans (werewolves) have begun creating a vaccine that would make them immune to silver. The man is testing the vaccine on his own son for a long time to see the results of the vaccine as well as modifying his son’s DNA so he is bigger, faster, and stronger than any other lycan.

Connection of flickclip to the concept: Lycans are created through a virus transferred by a bite from another lycan. This virus changes the person into a werewolf who can change at will, however, they are still highly allergic to silver. They are using a hybrid girl to produce the antibodies for the vaccine to be able to eventually give them to all lycans.
Suggestions to teachers:

i. Suggested questions for students to when viewing the clip:
1. Why is the man getting a series of shots?
2. Why would they want to clone the girl’s DNA?
3. Why do they want to be immune to silver?
