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.

Chris Hemsworth in Red Dawn

Since the Red Dawn remake was finished two years ago, Josh Hutcherson became a participant of The Hunger Games, Chris Hemsworth became a humbled hammer-wielding demi-god and a member of The Avengers, Jeffery Dean Morgan became a hotel owner mixed up in mob affairs, and Adraianne Palicki became a member of G.I. Joe. But before all of that, they were Wolverines and after seeing a couple of promotional images, we now have our first trailer for Red Dawn. And you know what, it doesn’t look half bad, even if the film had been shelved for two years. Check it out below.

Like the first Red Dawn film, this remake centers on a group of youthful citizens and a capable soldier as they fight to regain control of their small town from the hands of international enemies, in this case, it’s the North Koreans. As you can see, they will be severely out numbered, out classed, and out gunned, but that won’t stop them. Based on the trailer alone, the new Red Dawn looks like one of those fun popcorn action flicks.

Red Dawn Cast Header

What a difference a couple of years make. After sitting on a shelf for the better part of two years, the remake of Red Dawn hits theaters this Thanksgiving. The film features a new generation of American’s youth defending their land against the forces of the North Koreans. Originally the film’s antagonists were the Chinese, but the film was digitally altered so that the antagonists would be North Koreans. We previously posted two new images from the film, and now we got our first look at the poster for Red Dawn, which looks like one of the options you would see on an instagram photo. Check it out below.

As you can see, MGM and Open Road are slowly pushing out the promotional material for the film. With this poster, this brings out print promotions to a grand total of four (the header image above, the two images, and now this poster). So if you are tired of photos and are just itching to see a trailer for the film, then you’re in luck, because the first trailer for the Red Dawn remake premieres tomorrow.

The first image of the cast of MGM’s ’80s movie remake, Red Dawn, has shown up online. It’s unclear where the picture comes from, when it was taken, or how official it is, but it’s definitely the cast dressed for the part.

In the picture you’ll see some of the stars like Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Edwin Hodge, and Alyssa Diaz as they do their best to mirror stars of the original movie like Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Leah Thomson, Jennifer Grey, and C. Thomas Howell.

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.

‘War Of Gods’ Becomes ‘Immortals’; Adds John Hurt & Isabel Lucas

Theseus

It was a little strange when we were informed that two movies based on Greek mythology were coming — one an adaptation of popular video game God of War; the other being Tarsem Singh‘s War of Gods — with such similar titles. Though the Brett Ratner-directed God of War has since been put to sleep for now, it looks as if they don’t want to take the risk on title confusions among movie-goers.

In a press release put out by Relativity Media, it was announced that War of Gods will now officially be called Immortals. The new title doesn’t sound quite as epic (more like a Highlander sequel), but is effective enough for what they need it to be. Another possible title was Dawn of War.
