"Immortals": The 2011 Action Movie You Didn't Know You Wanted To See
...Here's the basic plot outline: It's a mash-up of ancient Greek mythology - primarily Theseus (the guy who killed The Minotaur) and The Titanomachy, i.e. the pre-humanity war between the Olympian Gods and their predecessors, The Titans. In this variation, in addition to slaying man-bulls, Theseus is tasked by Zeus etc. to lead your basic D&D campaign team (Frieda Pinto as a priestess, Stephen Dorf as a slave) to find a Magic MacGuffin before the Titan leader Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) can use it to set his imprisoned brothers free.
In other words: It sounds A LOT like the remake of "Clash of The Titans" - which everyone saw but nobody was really over-the-moon about. So, it was probably for the best that they've held back on the media-blitz until right about now: A set of posters hit Fandango tonight, and tommorrow it's having a big "debut" panel at Wondercon; so a trailer will likely soon be in the offing. Until then, here's the trailer to "The Fall" - which you should really check out.
