Just over two weeks to go until Tarsem Singh’s Greek epic Immortals arrives in our cinemas, 11th November to be exact! A new clip has been revealed today in what will no doubt be an intense build up to its release, and I say bring on as much stuff as you can. I expect this film to be amazing, and so far it has looked like everything I was hoping for.
This new clip see’s Theseus and King Hyperion meet for the first time, and clearly it is a tense and hateful encounter. Mickey Rourke appears to be relishing in his role of the evil King, whilst Henry Cavill looks the perfect actor to play the part of Theseus. A new TV spot was also released a week ago, and that is also included, after the first clip. Enjoy!
Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders-including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff)-one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.
