From the producers of “300” comes Immortal – an epic film about the story of Thesus as he defends his homeland and the gods against the Titan Hyperion who declared war on humanity. The plot screams gore, action, and a lot of slow motion fight scenes (haha). Here’s the official plot from Wikipedia:
Years after the Titanomachy, the Titan Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) declares war on humanity. He searches for the Epirus Bow, a legendary weapon created by the war god Ares, which will allow him to free the rest of the Titans from Tartarus and take revenge on the Olympians who brought about their downfall. In accordance with ancient laws, the gods are unable to take a side in the war between Hyperion and humanity. It is left to a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill), chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) and accompanied by the priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and a slave (Stephen Dorff), to protect his homeland and save the gods.
To get a better feel for the movie, check out this trailer. It reeks of awesomeness.
I’ll definitely be monitoring the development of this movie. In a year filled with comics superhero blockbusters it’s refreshing to see something like this.
Here’s one of the posters:
Immortals will hit theaters worldwide on November 11, 2011.
