This new featurette has been released online for Tarsem Singh’s awesome looking mythical adventure flick ‘Immortals,’ taking an in-depth look at the film’s lead character Theseus (Henry Cavill). With both ‘Clash Of The Titans’ and ‘Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief,’ the Greek God’s must have been twisting their surly beards in disgust with 2010′s cinematic offerings based around Greek mythology. From the looks of it ‘Immortals’ seems to be profoundly better than those two flicks. ‘Immortals’ is set for release November 11th, 2011. The film stars Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto, Mickey Rourke, John Hurt, Isabel Lucas, Kellan Lutz, Robert Maillet, Luke Evans and Corey Sevier.

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.
