Ever since the first Twilight movie, Kellan Lutz has been a sight to behold. His acting talent (or lack thereof) matters little when he gives us this and this and this just by standing in front of a camera and fending off clothing.
It comes as no surprise, then, that director Tarsem Singh, master of movie spectacle, would want to utilize Lutz's jaw-dropping form in his Greek myth extravaganza, The Immortals, hitting theaters on November 11 (yes, that's 11/11/11). Known simply as Tarsem, the auteur has previously only made two feature films -- The Cell (2000) and The Fall (2006) -- both of which are epics of cinematic surrealism but nightmarishly failed attempts at storytelling.
Judging from the trailer, it looks as if The Immortals promises the lush visual landscape we'd expect from Tarsem (thank God!), but will he finally succeed in marrying style and substance in a story well-written enough to deserve his sublime artistry? Probably not, and... who cares. Not long after The Immortals dies we'll have this to chew on.
