TARSEM SINGH'S GREEK EPIC "IMMORTALS" WITH HENRY CAVILL AND MICKEY ROURKE TO PREMIERE IN NOVEMBER 2011

Officially my own most anticipated movie of 2011 "Immortals" has been given a release date and a very interesting one - 11.11.2011. Directed by visual genius Tarsem Singh (who brought us amazing visual feasts in "The Cell" with Jennifer Lopez and in "The Fall" with Lee Pace, and he also directed REM's "Loosing My Religion" video) this epic adventure will be set eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, but now a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, king Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares.
Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope.
Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders, including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff), one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.
As you've noticed the cast consists of some super gorgeous young stars including also young Kellan Lutz ("Twilight") who will portray the Greek God Poseidon, John Hurt will be Old Zeus, Luke Evans ("Clash of the Titans") the young Zeus, Corey Sevier is Apollo, Isabel Lucas ("Transformers") is Athena, Steve Byers is Heracles....

  1. I don't understand why there is no movie release in 10.10.10? I think this is also a sacred date.

    actually Jaccsy, now that you ask, that's the date when I'm planning to release my penguin army upon the unsuspecting world and start my intergalactic domination. You should join my side before it's too late :)))

    @Alex

  6. Oh man, that sounds freaking awesome. Reading through that for some reason I thought it would be a series, which would just be awesome. But movie is still wicked.

  8. I happen to like Stephen Dorff and not because he's naked...though that helps. I first saw him in a TV movie entitled, I Know My First Name Is Steven and kept up with his films since then.

  9. This looks to be pretty cool. If it had John Hurt in it, then you've got the older, Classical feel down :P I'm with Bry, I assumed it was a TV show too...

    yep, I'm sure that pic helps in spreading love for Dorff :)

    @Jamie
    I wouldn't expect a classical film. Tarsem is probably the most stunning director when it comes to visuals and he said that he will make this movie in the mix of baroque and rock'n'roll style :) So we may expect grandiose, lavish and spectacular sets and dynamic action.

  15. Oh man, I can't wait that long!! I can't wait to see the trailer for this. With Tarsem the visuals will be off the charts... oh and Henry... swoon...

  16. Hey, Tarsem...shouldn't Hephaestus have been the one to make the Epirus Bow? Just curious.

    Anyway...hopefully it's a good flick, niggling details aside.
