Excuse us a minute while we clean up the main deck, a few of us made a bit of an excited mess when we first watched this trailer for Tarsem Singh’s, (The Fall, The Cell), latest piece of eye porn, entitled Immortals.
Starring Mickey Rourke, (who appears to have had his head trapped in a brass statue of a Cephalotus Follicularis), Henry Cavill, (Stardust), Freida Pinto, (Slumdog Millionaire) and Stephen Dorff, (Blade, Space Truckers) Immortals, at first glance looks like the Clash Of The Titans movie which should have been made. The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
As a power-mad king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful. 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.
So it’s a guys on a mission movie with added leather tunics, sandals, swords, shields, monsters and Mickey Rourke’s head in a plant. Consider our tickets bought! (via Slash Film)
