Relativity Media presents “IMMORTALS.” It comes out on, now get this, 11-11-11! This is a sword and sandal epic that pits an evil monarch (Mickey Rourke) against a rebel peasant (Henry Cavill). “Immortals” is directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and produced by 300‘s Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton along with Ryan Kavanaugh.
Here is the synopsis from the press release:
“On 11/11/11, witness the 3-D epic battle as mere men become Immortals. Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares.
Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope.
Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders–including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff) — one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.”
It’s hard to go wrong with Mickey Rourke. On top of that, you’ve got John Hurt who gave a great performance, although perhaps unnecessary, in the last Harry Potter spectacle. Anyway, this one should be fun. If you’re superstitious, then definitely go see it on 11-11-11.
