Relativity has released more images from Tarsem Singh’s Immortals. The movie centers on the mortal Theseus (Henry Cavill) joining forces with the Greek gods to defeat the power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke). As you’ll see from these set photos (or really almost anything released to promote this movie), the costumes are goofy beyond all reason. It’s one thing to think outside the box on costuming, especially for the gods, but this looks painfully distracting. At least the mortals look alright. One of the images has Theseus casually holding a spear and probably thinking, “I’m pretty sure I can stab that guy in the face even though his helmet has a visor.”
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Joseph Morgan, Kellan Lutz, and Stephen Dorff. Immortals opens in 3D on November 11th.

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).
