BEHOLD THE EXCLUSIVE FIRST PICTURES FROM TARSEM SINGH'S EPIC "IMMORTALS"

Thanks to the Gods themselves, we finally have the hottest item ever - the first pictures from my most anticipated movie "Immortals" which is set to premier in November 2011. Directed by visual master genius Tarsem Singh ("The Fall", "The Cell"), this epic adventure stars Henry Cavill (as Theseus, the first picture), Mickey Rourke (as King Hyperion, the third picture) and gorgeous Freida Pinto (As Phaedra, the second picture).
"Immortals", which is currently being shot over in Montreal, and should be an epic action with luxurious Caravaggio style visuals, is basically a mythological tale set in war-torn ancient Greece where the young warrior, Theseus, leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek Gods to defeat evil and the powerful elder gods the Titans in order to save mankind.

  3. Alex if you've ever seen any of Tarsem's movies, you would know that this movie cannot be compared with CLASH OF THE TITANS when it comes to quality and depth.

    I knew you'd like it, Avalon :)

  4. Looks nice. :) Even Mickey Rourke looks decent. :)
    I'm also glad Henry Cavill is wearing pants, and not only skirts.

  6. As I said many times before, this cannot be compared with CLASH OF THE TITANS in any way. The only similarity is the genre and the setting.

  7. Tarsem Singh is undoubtly a visual genius, but most of his movies are messy and terribly-paced. Fingers crossed, it won't be the same case with this one.

    Neb, my friend, Tarsem has only two movies behind him. He always goes for quality not for quantity. None of those two movies were messy nor ill-paced. They were perfectly logical. Maybe you got the impression because those films are very imaginative, spread between reality and dreams, and thus have unusual and totally unique approach to the storytelling. They were both slow, because it had to be like that, that's the main point of their stories.
    THE CELL was about dreams, being lost in them, it was about exploring human psyche and thus it had slow parts and then shockingly disturbing ones, just like a real dream. THE FALL was told from the point of view of a little girl, and thus has the rhythm of a story for children in which imagination defies logic.
    I must admit that I've found THE FALL a bit less than what I expected (although I still love the film dearly), but for me the problem was in visuals, they were amazing but too desert oriented, and extremely minimalistic, while in THE CELL, Tarsem had spoiled us with luxurious, unbelievable, breathtaking visuals.

  9. Dezz, I know he has only 2 movies behind him. I've seen them both and, yes, they were sharp, colorful and dazzling, yet somehow cold and lifeless, and maybe too artsy for my taste. I respect your opinion and your emotional analysis, but I have to disagree here, because I think Tarsem movies are stunningly beautiful, but drowned in pretentiousness. And sometimes, looking good just isn't enough.

  10. the warmth and lively spirit is exactly what they have and what THE FALL ,for example, is always praised for, but it might be true that them being artsy influences your opinion about them, since we all know how much you love ultrafast kick-ass action :)

  11. Fast-paced kick-ass action always get me so excited, and my adrenaline starts pumping. Only true love gives me bigger adrenaline rush :) Oh, I'm so sentimental... :) :D

  12. I think we'll both agree that the romantic and sexual adrenaline rush is far more better than the cinematic one :)
