Universal has released a third trailer to Immortals, the new action adventure based on Greek mythology. Starring the next Superman Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), recent survivor of the ape revolution Freida Pinto (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and recent survivor of Mickey Rourke, Mickey Rourke (The Expendables)
The singularly named Tarsem, last seen with his fantasy adventure film The Fall, is perhaps best known for his debut feature The Cell with J.Lo, is undoubtedly bringing his trademark brand of avant garde crazy to the film.
Yet one can’t help but see 300 in this, mixed with liberal doses of Clash of the Titans. With a sequel to the latter also coming out next year, and Cavill the star of 300 helmer Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, perhaps Tarsem is just tapping into the zeitgeist with another serving of glistening man-flesh fighting impossible odds.
Immortals is released on 24 November 2011 in Australia from Universal.
