Immortals Cover Poster - Relativity MediaImmortals
Netflix | Amazon | Google Play | SEN | Vudu | Xbox | YouTube
DVD | DVD
Directed by Tarsem Singh
Starring Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Mickey Rourke, John Hurt
Relativity Media
Originally Released: November 11, 2011

Coupled with delightful visuals and unreal effects, Immortals is a fantasy, with a reasonable cast and a good dash of battle gore. While it takes the lead from the likes of 300, Troy, and Clash Of The Titans; it also unfortunately butchers the original mythology upon which it is ostensibly based, taking the phrase "loosely based" to new levels of bullshittery.

Immortals follows the legend of Theseus (Henry Cavill), the founder-hero from Greek mythology, responsible for the formation and consolidation of Athens – and eventually Greece as a power in the ancient world. Centuries after the war of the Immortals, evil King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) seeks the Epirus Bow, the only weapon that could possibly free the evil Titans, antagonists of the Gods.

A Hero’s Journey, Immortals depicts Theseus’ rise to prominence, a reluctant mortal who would stand by the sides of Gods – and eventually fight in their names. In a blood-soaked battle that would determine the conceptualization of "souls" in Greek culture, the stakes are high – and may spell doom not only for the mortals, but for Immortal Gods as well.

Immortals

The latest trailer for Immortals, the upcoming 3D epic adventure from director Tarsem Singh (The Fall), has just been released for viewing on MSN Movies, Zune, and Xbox Live. You can check it out below this article.

The film follows a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) who is chosen by the Greek gods to battle the power-mad warrior king Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) when he declares war on humanity. Hyperion has assembled a massive army and is on a quest to find the Epirus Bow, a weapon of astounding power created by the gods that can unleash the Titans from their imprisonment in Mount Tartaros. If Hyperion takes possession of the Bow he can destroy the gods and dominate the world. Because the gods are forbidden by ancient law to intervene, only Theseus can defeat Hyperion and save his people from death and enslavement.

SDCC 2011: Tarsem Singh’s ‘Immortals’ Panel

Week of Geek: SDCC 2011 Coverage - San Diego Comic Con

SDCC 2011: Immortals panel: Henry CavillCinephiles have followed visionary director Tarsem Singh‘s stunning visual spectacles for years in films like The Cell and The Fall. As a fan of his films, my only regret has been that as an indie director his work has been somewhat overlooked by mainstream audiences. With Immortals being produced by the producers of 300, Tarsem finally has the opportunity to helm a true tentpole epic.

At the Immortals panel today at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 included Tarsem, 300 producers Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari, and cast members Freida Pinto as the Oracle, Stephen Dorff as Stavros, Luke Evans as Zeus, Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, and (future Superman) Henry Cavill as Theseus.

Tarsem revealed that the actual film is quite darker in tone than recent ads have revealed.

Footage shown was an amazing visual feast for the eyes. Imagine a cross between 300, Spartacus: Blood & Sand, or Troy, but completely in 3D, and on an exponentially more epic scale. Diamond arrows, golden armor, and thousands of warriors shed blood across the screen in terrific stylized slow motion.

The first trailer for Tarsem Singh‘s new Greek mythology epic, Immortals, showed us that the director was definitely bringing his stunning visuals master–touch to the game once again while setting up the story. Now a second trailer has been released to expand on that with even more to look at.

We don’t know if the movie is going to be bad or good, but one thing is for sure: you’d have a hard time finding trailers with more beautiful shots than the first two we’ve seen for this one.

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2011

Henry Cavill At WonderCon 2011Attention was focused on Henry Cavill during the Immortals panel today at WonderCon 2011 as it’s the actor’s first major public appearance since being cast as the Man of Steel in the new Superman movie directed by Zack Snyder.

“The new suit is still in development, so I haven’t tried it on,” Cavill said in response to the first fan question about what he feels like after putting on the Superman costume. He also talked about the training he went through to get in shape for Immortals, which no doubt made him an even more perfect candidate for Superman. “Lots of cardiovascular, lots of mixed martial arts, and eating very little.”

The trailer Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals was debuted. Cavil stars in the film as Theseus, who’s chosen by Zeus to protect the homelands from the threat of the titans and save the gods.

Geek Peek: First Images From Tarsem Singh’s ‘Immortals’

Immortals #1

We’ve covered all of the Greek mythology epics that have been in the process of being made over the past couple of years quite a bit. Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans came and went — to some pretty heavy negativity, no less — and now we wait patiently for Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals, which if you hadn’t heard, was formerly known as War of Gods.

The first set of images from Immortals have found their way to the internet by way of Rogue Pictures, and they’re good enough to make the November 11, 2011 release date sound just a little too far away.

Click on over to see the images.
