Relativity Media has released a new poster along with some new images for their upcoming film Immortals. The film is looking to capitalize on the highly visual style that made 300 so successful, while mixing it a bit more with fantasy, like Warner Brothers Clash of the Titans. I’m still not sold on this one yet. For me it all comes down to the perfect mix of great visuals, lots of action and a story that is engaging. It looks like they got the visuals down, but can they get the other two?
We’ll see when Immortals hits theaters on November 11th, 2011. Or 11-11-11 as all the trailers and posters say!
Immortals stars Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto and Mickey Rourke.
Check out the new poster and images below.
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) transports us in this epic tale 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).
