Tarsem's 'Immortals' Getting First Look at WonderCon
If all the Green Lantern goodness doesn’t convince you to go WonderCon, maybe this will:
Immortals, the Tarsem Singh-directed Greek god epic from Relativity, will have its first-look at the San Francisco event, which runs April 1 to 3.
Also there will be some of the cast, including Henry Cavill, the British actor recently cast as Superman. Also on tap are Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz and Isabel Lucas. Singh will be there as will the producers, Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton.
Details are still being worked but April 2 will be the day footage will be shown and the cast does a panel.
In case you’re wondering what Immortals is all about, here’s the synopsis:
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 (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.
The movie is slated to open Nov. 11.
