Immortals Movie Trailer

 

Nobody would EVER compare Star Wars with Immortals. But one cool special effect featured in Immortals might draw comparisons to when audiences first saw the lightsaber effect. The featured weapon in Immortals is a lightning bolt bow. Seriously. A bow that shoots lightning bolts.

It’s awesome.

As far as the rest of the movie trailer…well let’s just say that it looks like a lot of fun. To be honest, this film may sneak in as a sleeper hit. It’s scheduled for awards season and around that time many filmgoers are itching for some fun to get away from the shameless awards season marketing and dramatic fare usually in theaters during that period of time.

The film looks really pretty. Almost too pretty. It’s obviously an artistic choice and not accidental. It should be even more impressive in 3D. Although it’s a period piece, I almost get a science fiction vibe from the film. Are the so called “Gods of Olympus” featured in the movie…really… aliens in this film? I’m getting that vibe. I could be wrong though.

Most of the buzz surrounding the film concerns the lead actor in Immortals Henry Cavill. Who, if one isn’t aware, is playing Superman / Clark Kent in the upcoming Christopher Nolan produced film Man of Steel. He certainly looks the part based on this trailer.

Immortals stars Henry Cavil, Freida Pinto, Mickey Rourke, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Stephen Dorff and John Hurt. It is directed by Tarsem Singh. It is scheduled for release November 11, 2011.

 

Official Synopsis:

Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) transports us to a mythical world of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and visually spectacular 3D action adventure. As a power-hungry 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 rampage 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 his mother, who was killed in one of Hyperion’s brutal 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. Immortals is produced by Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter).
