Slash Film got their hands on a top quality version of Tarstem’s latest opus, Immortals, starring Henry Cavill (the next Superman) and Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke.
Starring Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, John Hurt and Rourke, the film is a Greek epic styled in the vein of 300 but with Tarstem’s signature touches.
Plot Summary: Years after the Titanomachy, the Titan Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) declares war on humanity. He searches for the Epirus Bow, a legendary weapon created by the war god Ares, which will allow him to free the rest of the Titans from Tartarus and take revenge on the Olympians who brought about their downfall. In accordance with ancient laws, the gods are unable to take a side in the war between Hyperion and humanity. It is left to a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill), chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) and accompanied by the priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and a slave (Stephen Dorff), to protect his homeland and save the gods.
Immortals is scheduled for release November 11, 2011
