“If you anger the gods, prepare to have your ass handed to you.” That’s what Immortals director Tarsem Singh (The Cell) appears to be saying in this clip from the upcoming Greek epic. Definitely not approved by the MPAA for primetime promos, the 80-second fight scene features glowing golden gods rending creatures apart in spectacularly bloody fashion. I don’t recall the Greek gods having chain whips or kamas, but I’m not complaining.
Immortals follows Theseus (Henry Cavill) as he teams up with the Greek gods to take down the power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke). The film also stars Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Joseph Morgan, Kellan Lutz, and Stephen Dorff. Immortals opens this Friday, November 11. Hit the jump to check out the clip.
Check out the gloriously gory clip below:
I’ve watched it like 5 times just for fun, but I’m not sure who all the gods are or who the creatures are supposed to be. They appear to have just been released by someone (Hyperion?) and they seem to be equal to the challenge. If you guys want to play “Spot the Gods” and let us know who’s who in the comments.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) transports us in this epic tale of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and visually spectacular 3D action adventure. As a power-hungry king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful.
The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army rampage across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.
As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge his mother, who was killed in one of Hyperion’s brutal raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final, desperate battle for the future of humanity. Immortals is produced by Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter).
