Happy Monday, everybody!
Ooooh, lookie here. As you surely already know, I’ve been anticipating this movie for some time (you can see all my coverage on Immortals here). Last April I put up the first trailer and last night, director Tarsem Singh released the second one via Ryan Seacrest’s website. Check it out below:
I love swords & sandals genre and Greek mythology tales, and having one of my fave British actors Henry Cavill in the lead as Theseus just makes me anticipate this all the more! The trailer definitely is an improvement from the first one and Henry already looks much more expressive and engaging than Sam Worthington in Clash of the Titans. The rest of the cast is ok, apart from Mickey Rourke as the bloodthirsty King Hyperion and Luke Evans as Zeus, I’m not overly enthused about Stephen Dorff or Kellan Lutz. Indian actress Frieda Pinto as Phaedra seems fitting though, she’s such an unearthly beauty and I’m glad to see a person of color getting the female lead in this movie. Both Henry and Luke are two up and coming Brits high on my to-watch list, and I hope I get to meet them next month at San Diego Comic Con! 😀
I was bummed out when I heard news last week that Marvel Studios won’t have a big presence at SDCC this year. But… that disappointment is short-lived when I read reports that IMMORTALS will indeed be in Hall H!!! According to Stars Entertainment website, Relativity Media has announced their lineup for Hall H that includes Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire (too bad one of the cast members Michael Fassbender won’t be in the guest panel), The Raven with John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe, AND Tarsem’s Immortals! Evans’ star power is surely on the rise as he’ll be amongst the panelists for the period thriller The Raven as well. Looks like everyone from Immortals will be present at the Con… AND there’ll be an official autograph signing at the Convention Center, wahoo!
Man, oh man! Just the thought of being able to shake hands with the future Superman just gets me all giddy! 😀
Ehm, now that I got that out of my system… what do you think of the second trailer?
