Over the weekend Rogue Pictures released a few production stills from their upcoming Greek epic, Immortals. The film is directed by Indian helmer Tarsem Singh and features “The Tudors” Henry Cavill, Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke, and Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto. The film’s premise is very similar to Clash of the Titans and aesthetically it looks like the yet to be released Neil Marshall film, Centurion. Take a peek at the photos and tell us what you think…
Immortals centers on a young warrior named Theseus (Cavill) who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat the evil and powerful elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind. Rourke stars as the film’s villain King Hyperion, while Pinto plays Phaedra, an oracle priestess who aids the young warrior on his quest.
We have to admit, Rourke’s blind eye is a bit distracting in his photo but it adds a badass factor to his character. He looks batsh*t crazy, which makes us wonder what type of psycho antics King Hyperion will be involved with. Cavill is ripped as Theseus but he looks like a standard Greek action hero, we’ll need to hear some dialogue and see him fight before we judge him.
Immortals also stars John Hurt as Zeus, Twilight’s Kellan Lutz as Poseidon (rolls eyes), Isabel Lucas as Zeus’ daughter Athena, and Stephen Dorff as Stavros a “master thief.” The film will debut in theaters on November 11, 2011 (yes, its release date is the gimmicky 11-11-2011).
