8 Clips from IMMORTALS Starring Henry Cavill and Mickey Rourke

     October 29, 2011


We’ve been provided with eight clips from The Fall director Tarsem Singh’s new film Immortals. The pic centers on Theseus (Henry Cavill), a mortal, who teams up with the Greek gods in order to defeat the power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke). Instead of depicting the gods as ginormous otherworldly creatures, Singh has taken a different route and instead the gods take the form of chiseled immortal beings that don’t look dissimilar from humans.

The film also stars Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Joseph Morgan, Kellan Lutz, and Stephen DorffImmortals opens in 3D on November 11th and we’ll have exclusive interviews with the cast the week of release.  Hit the jump to watch the clips.

Here’s the official synopsis for Immortals:

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).

    This article is decidedly lacking in clips.

    I was finally getting excited about this movie and wanted to see these clips to get a better feel for the visionary orgy that was going to take place in my eyes.

    Thank you Collider for depriving me of an orgy in my eyes.

    P.S. I blame Matt

    Did you even click play?

      The first time i came to this article, there was no video player, just the poster. I assume that the compiler misread the http script and omitted the player.

      That being said, upon the page properly loading the script, I am no longer psyched about this movie.

    This Tarsem is just another Snyder. I will hate this immortals

  • dogg

    Flat and empty environments and it all looks like it was filmed on a sound stage. I don’t know who they were hoping to impress with these spoiler-y clips.

    the facebook logo on all the posters ruins them. i know its small but it sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Wow, just wow…what a remarkably poor grasp on the classical rules of editing, – there’s real lack of continuity through poor cutting/framing…the first scene alone is so confusing it almost gave me a headache.

    • Sean

      thats not the way the scenes actually unfold in the film. A lot of clips for movies are like that they cut out parts of that scene so it looks choppy and inconsistent.

  • jake

    Also, is it me or are Singh and Snyder mirroring each other? Snyder made an original Greek epic and Singh made an original film featuring a girl in a hospital with a wild imagination. Then Snyder does a film about a girl in a mental institution and Singh does a Greek epic. It’s like they’re trying to steal each other’s thunder, but failing, hmmm?

      Singh and Snyder probably influencing each other. They’re both attend the same College (Art Center of Chicago I think).

      There’s some difference between Zack Snyder and Tarsem Singh. Zack Snyder’s style of movie is so…male-like. Strong, full of actions, you get the meaning.

      Tarsem Singh is more theatrical. The Fall, The Cell, both have these settings that shows surrealism which usually can be found at a contemporary theater. Same thing for the costume (allthough because most of his movies got their costumes from the same costume designer, Eiko Ishioka)

      They probably somehow inspired each other, but they have their own *language*.

    Looks like 300, which most seemed to love, so why the fanboy hate?

  • Mik

    By the way this is 8 clips put together in a 6 min preview. Duh!

    Why do film directors who want to make an epic Greek mythology movie just simply take the story and make it into a movie instead of making a movie which has absolutely no relation to the story. When you read ancient Greek mythology you simply fall in love with the originality and imagination the ancients had. They are fantastic stories in their own might with lots of creativity. These blockbuster movies do no credit to the original mythology nor really give any credit to the film directors.
