The plot of Immortals seems a bit confusing to us, but maybe that's because we haven't dusted off our Bulfinch's Mythology since... OK, we never read that. We do know that a dashing young Henry Cavill (starring next year as the newest Superman) plays Theseus, a half-human, half-god, who is charged with stopping King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) from unleashing a slew of Titans. And unleashed Titans are never good news.
In an interview with Empire, director Tarsem Singh (the man behind The Cell and The Fall) describes the film's aesthetic:
"Basically, Caravaggio meets Fight Club. It's a really hardcore action film done in Renaissance painting style... I'm going for a very contemporary look on top of that so I'm kind of going with, you know, Renaissance time with electricity. So it's a bit like Baz Luhrman doing Romeo + Juliet in Mexico; it's just talking a particular Greek tale and half contemporising it and telling it."
That sounds intriguing. But even better, this film (from the producers of 300) promises the same number of sculpted bodies.
