Immortals Synopsis
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.

I won't pretend to be excited that The Faculty has become available on Netflix Watch Instantly, but only because doing so might imply that I didn't already own the 1998 alien-invasion film on DVD, which might not be entirely true. ("Crash and burn, Casey.") The Elijah Wood starring body snatchers teen sci-fi/horror is just one of a few movies that's been added to Netflix's Watch Instantly.

Immortals Gifts Mortal Man With A March DVD Release Immortals Gifts Mortal Man With A March DVD Release
Based -- very loosely -- on the legend of Theseus, Immortals sets the legendary Greek hero (played by new Superman Henry Cavill) against the villainous King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke), who is trying to get his hands on a powerful magic bow that will allow him to "unleash war on both Heaven and Earth." From his beginnings as a lowly villager, Theseus rises in power and soon gathers an army of warriors determined to stop Hyperion's plans.

Weekend Box Office: Audiences Hand Victory To Immortals Weekend Box Office: Audiences Hand Victory To Immortals
From the stylized fighting to the over abundance of enhanced abs, it's hard not to draw comparisons between 300 and this weekend's new entry Immortals. But one place where the two diverge is box office performance. While Immortals banked a decent $32 million, it fell short of the $70 million the highly anticipated 300 opened to back in 2007.

Immortals Director Tarsem Singh Talks About The Ill-Fated Horses In His Films Immortals Director Tarsem Singh Talks About The Ill-Fated Horses In His Films
Tarsem Singh has only made three movies in his career, debuting his first, The Cell, in 2000, but watching his films you begin to notice a pattern: horses don’t have the greatest amount of luck. From the dissection scene in the Jennifer Lopez thriller, to the titular accident in The Fall, species of the Equus genus aren’t treated like pretty ponies in Singh’s world. So when a pair of horses in Immortals once again experience tragedy, I felt inclined to ask the director about it.

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Immortals Ticket To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Immortals Ticket
Welcome to our 33rd edition of “To 3D Or Not To 3D.” Since we started this feature paired with the release of Clash of the Titans [shudder], we’ve analyzed some of the best 3D movies have to offer (like Legends of the Guardians) to some of the worst (like Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides). This week marks the release of Immortals, a new epic starring Henry Cavill, Luke Evans and Mickey Rourke. But is the 3D up to snuff?

Immortals TV Spot Emphasizes The Evil That Is Mickey Rourke Immortals TV Spot Emphasizes The Evil That Is Mickey Rourke
As if you couldn’t tell, this Immortals clip -- like every Immortals clip -- reminds us it’s “from the producers of 300.” But you have to love Mickey Rourke boasting about having plenty of women, and plenty of weapons. Singh’s cinematography is beyond eye-catching and Cavill appears to be emerging as an action hero who demands our attention (take note, Sam Worthington).

Immortals Director Tarsem Singh Admits He Didn't Want The Job At First Immortals Director Tarsem Singh Admits He Didn't Want The Job At First
If you’re like me, you were left scratching your head in wonder at the news that Tarsem Singh, who is currently directin an untitled Snow White project, was going to direct a Greek God fantasy film. His previous films, The Cell and The Fall, had slight elements of fantasy but everything has always been grounded in reality. More to the point, the director does next to no special effects in post-production, so why would a movie about Greek Gods, a film that will most definitely be laden with post effects, appeal to someone like Tarsem?

New Immortals Trailer: A Ton Of Voiceover To Finally Explain The Plot New Immortals Trailer: A Ton Of Voiceover To Finally Explain The Plot
Now there's a new trailer that explains a little bit more by way of copious voiceover, but it all still seems a bit muddled to me. There are enough striking visuals thrown in there, though, to make it seem like it might be worthwhile anyway-- after all, did any of us really follow the plot of The Fall all the way through
