“Immortals” trailer: Gorgeous Greek action!
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Relativity Media has posted the first official teaser for Tarsem Singh’s 3-D film “Immortals” on Apple Check. We have posted a link to the trailer below.
Tarsem is a stylish, visual director (rent “The Cell” to see a whole new side of Jennifer Lopez), and this clip lives up to expectations. It looks like it could be Julie Taymor’s “Thor,” or a better looking “Clash of the Titans.”
Henry Cavill, or the man who will be Superman, joins Stephen Dorff, Freida Pinto, John Hurt and Mickey Rourke in a story about one man’s search for the weapons of the Greek Gods.
Here’s an official synopsis:
The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.
As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity.
