Officially my own most anticipated movie of 2011 "Immortals" has been given a release date and a very interesting one - 11.11.2011. Directed by visual genius Tarsem Singh (who brought us amazing visual feasts in "The Cell" with Jennifer Lopez and in "The Fall" with Lee Pace, and he also directed REM's "Loosing My Religion" video) this epic adventure will be set eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, but now a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, king Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares.
Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope.
Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders, including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff), one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.
As you've noticed the cast consists of some super gorgeous young stars including also young Kellan Lutz ("Twilight") who will portray the Greek God Poseidon, John Hurt will be Old Zeus, Luke Evans ("Clash of the Titans") the young Zeus, Corey Sevier is Apollo, Isabel Lucas ("Transformers") is Athena, Steve Byers is Heracles....
