When they rebooted the 'Clash of the Titans' franchise, I was a bit confused. While I loved the original (sure it was cheesy... but it was great!!!) I didn't see the need to rehash the story. That was not the first time a version of Greek Mythology had been told on the big screen, and surely it wouldn't be the last. Then the reboot came out, and the story was completely different then the original. So why share the title? That made me confused as well. Then I heard news of visionary director, Tarsem, wanting to take on the Greek Mythology angle for his next movie... and I knew that I would get my wish. Looks like this one will be a good one!
Here is the official synopsis for the film:
This past weekend at Wondercon 2011 Tarsem introduced 5 new posters featuring key characters from the film. Henry Cavill, the new Superman, will be the lead hero named Theseus. His main adversary will be King Hyperion, played by Mickey Rourke. The posters that were released are of Theseus and four of the gods featured in the film. Enjoy:
In Immortals, the ruthless King Hyperion (Rourke) leads his bloodthirsty army on a murderous rampage across Greece to find a deadly weapon that will destroy humanity. A mortal chosen by Zeus named Theseus (Cavill) must lead the fight against Hyperion and his evil army with the fate of mankind and the Gods at stake.
