Relativity has released eight new character posters for director Tarsem Singh’s (The Cell) Immortals. Starring Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Kellan Lutz, Mickey Rourke, John Hurt, Stephen Dorff, and Freida Pinto, the film centers on a stonemason named Theseus (Cavill) as he attempts to keep the long lost Bow of Epirus out of the hands of the ruthless King Hyperion (Rourke). As for the sheets themselves, I think that character posters are a great way of introducing unknowing audiences to the individual personalities of characters they may not already be familiar with. As one of those unknowing audience members, I’m not sure I know more about the characters after seeing these promos.
Check the posters out for yourself after the jump. Immortals hits 3D theaters later this year on November 11th.
Here are the new posters [click to enlarge]:
Here’s the official synopsis for Immortals:
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and producers Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter) unleash an epic tale of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and spectacular 3-D adventure. As a power-mad 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 are rampaging 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 the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s 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.
