Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke and Kellan Lutz in the Immortals trailer
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) is mad with power and wants to eliminate the gods of Greek lore by releasing the Titans. Since the gods can’t interfere with human problems their only hope is a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) who they choose to be their champion and save humanity from the crazed king. That is the story of the upcoming film IMMORTALS in a nutshell, it’s a bit of a cross between 300 and CLASH OF THE TITANS and looks better than COTT, but not as good as 300. With a supporting cast that includes: Frieda Pinto, John Hurt, Kellan Lutz, Luke Evans and Stephen Dorff, this film could really fall into either the decent or not so great category. IMMORTALS hits theaters on November 11, 2011.
One of my favorite subjects to read on is Greek Mythology (which may make me a bit of a nerd) so even though this film should interest me, I couldn’t get into the trailer at all. I hope I’m wrong, but my gut says “bored now”. Watch the trailer below.
