Golden Gods and Action Galore in the New 'Immortals' Trailer

The teaser trailer for director Tarsem Singh's epic 3D take on Greek Mythology gave a sense of the film's distinct, showstopping visuals, along with impeccably-shot and choreographed action.  A newly released theatrical trailer for the Relativity Media film contains even more of Singh's signature style and crowd-pleasing action, while laying out more of the plot.  It seems Superman-in-waiting Henry Cavill's Theseus is chosen as a hero not simply to stop the ruthless King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) from conquering the world of men, but to save the gods themselves.  Of course, we also get to see Luke Evans as Zeus laying a thorough hurting on some bad guys.

The trailer debuted this morning at Ryan

Here's the film's official 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.

Immortals hits theaters in 3D on November 11th.
