WWWOOOOWWWWW!! – Tarsem’s ‘Immortals’ Trailer
Every once in awhile there is a director out there that really pushes the envelope and creates a style of filmmaking where regardless of the subject matter, you just want to sit there and watch it.
Tarsem is one of those directors. This brilliant man can be called nothing short of an artist with some serious vision. Having got his start directing the Losing My Religion video for R.E.M., he went on to direct The Cell and The Fall, both extremely poetic and awe-inspiring films.
His latest one is The Immortals which tells the tale of Theseus going up again King Hyperion with a little help from the God of Mt. Olympus.
This trailer is nothing short of spectacular. The closest thing I can use to describe it is that it is a living piece of art. There are some fantastic imagery and a fluidity to it that draws you in.
That is Tarsem.
This is a must-see and very high up on my list of the most anticipated films of the year. The fact that the new Superman, Henry Cavill is in the film and does a fantastic job makes me salivate for the reboot of The Man of Steel even more now.
Oh and the fact that Frieda Pinto is in it just adds to the dopeness of it all.
Check out the trailer:
Here is the overview:
Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and producers Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter) unleash an epic tale of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and spectacular 3-D adventure. As a power-mad king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful. The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission. As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity.
