Immortals - First look images and other things

Hollywood. Please, from a film fan, stop making this sort of film and be inventive. You should have learnt from the lackluster reviews and audience number from the remake of Class Of The Titans. However if you make it in 3D (unlike Class where you tried to 3D the film with mixed results) you can charge a lot more per seat and make more money that the film deserves. With that off my chest I can say that this look like a cracking film. It does have a huge Zak Snyder 300 feel to the film after watching the trailer. This can be easily explained as the film "produced from the makers of 300".

Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, 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. The 3-D epic adventure Immortals is directed by revolutionary visualist Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and produced by Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton, the producers of 300, as well as Ryan Kavanaugh (Dear John, The Dark Fields).
