Another 3D film, Immortals is set to hit the theaters with a bang. The film has a decent cast and is likely to make a step up compared to the Clash of the Titans.
Here is a brief peak: Pitiless King Hyperion (Rourke) heads his ruthless army on a cutthroat rampage over Greece to get hold of a lethal weapon that would demolish humanity. Zeus chose a mortal named Theseus (Cavill) to spearhead the fight versus Hyperion and his vicious army on the destiny of the human race and also, the gods are at stake here.
Director Tarsem Singh heads the filmmaking team, and his work includes The Fall and The Cell, so the movie will bear a very specific visual style. Perhaps he won’t be the first person you’d think of when you think of a big budget classic movie like this. Seeing Tarsem direct a movie with Olympus gods and monumental battles may blow our minds, considering he did a pretty good job at The Fall. Mark Canton produced this film. He also produced 300.
John Hurt is also in the movie, and we can only hope that it stands out based on his performance. From the title War of Gods, then after that became Dawn of War, finally the title is Immortals. The best title is the last one and we can only hope that the title can stand up to its reputation in the cinemas.
