‘Immortals’ was one of the big hits at Wondercon this year. Not only are fans super excited about seeing Henry Cavill, the new Superman in action, but the movie is looking pretty damned awesome on its own. Tarsem Singh, the films director has created a feel that takes the hyper realism of movies like ‘300’ and elevates them to a level far beyond that of living comic book.
The teaser is a low res capture from TV last night, but even still, this movie looks epic!
Here’s the official synopsis:
The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion 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 vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra, 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.
