It is now less than a month until Tarsem Singh’s glorious looking Greek epic, Immortals, arrives in UK cinemas. 11th November is the date so get that marked down on your calenders, this is gonna be a big one! Singh has a unique style and vision to his films, and if you have see either The Cell or The Fall, you will know what I mean. I am bursting with excitement to see this film, and it just might be the film to persuade me that 3D aint all that bad! I have seen the trailer in 3D and it was breathtaking!
We have covered a mountain of news on this film with a number of trailers and pictures. I have included one trailer here, and the rest you can find here
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.
