Trailers: Tarsem Singh’s ‘Immortals’

- Advertisement -

The trailer for Tarsem Singh’s Immortals, his long anticipated follow up to The Fall, has hit the web today in preparation for it’s premiere in theatres before Fast Five.  This epic tells the story of the ancient Greek Theseus and his quest for vengeance against the bloodthirsty King Hyperion.  The film stars Superman himself Henry Cavil as Theseus and Mickey Rourke as Hyperion.  Joining them is an incredibly stacked cast including Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, John Hurt, Kellen Lutz, and Freida Pinto.

The trailer doesn’t disappoint either, showing off Tarsem’s trademark beautiful imagery with some impressive action sequences.  The story also looks interesting enough and there are some modern parallels to be drawn.  The trailer is really pushing the 300 aspect but unlike that film, most of this film was shot on location and the effects are practical, something Tarsem prides himself on doing.  He shot The Fall on 26 locations in 18 countries and very little CGI. I think Tarsem is two for two with his debut being The Cell, an extremely ambitious and haunting visual orgy of a procedural thriller that is sorely underrated, and 2008’s The Fall, an even more ambitious family film that combines breathtaking visuals with a beautiful and moving story of friendship between a stuntman and a young girl.  That film showed Tarsem’s strengths as a visual storyteller as well as someone who can work on an intimate scale.  He also got an incredible performance out of child actress Catinca Untaru as the young girl.

It will be interesting to see what Cavill does with his first post-Superman announcement project.  If this film, which is coming out November 11th, does well, he will have some name recognition going into Man of Steel and they might be able to partially sell the film on his name.  Also, I have attached Tarsem’s introduction to the trailer from Rogue’s official YouTube page.
