Get an early look at the trailer for Immortals

Apr. 26, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Can you stomach the blathering of an E! News anchor for about a minute or so? Then you'll be OK to sit through this first look at the trailer for Tarsem's IMMORTALS, which debuted on E! last night. I'll never understand the thinking behind getting an exclusive trailer and talking over it but that's another story for another day.

The film looks pretty incredible (loving that fiery whip) but beyond that it just seems like a sequel to 300 by way of CLASH OF THE TITANS. It's hard to tell if I'm underwhelmed because I want to see the visuals (which will likely be the best thing about this project) in HD or because I'm annoyed by the voiceover which talks about "British hottie" Henry Cavill and "TWILIGHT star!" Kellen Lutz.

Take a look below and let me know what you think. As soon as an HD, non E! News version pops up online, I'll make sure to share.

This movie was filmed in my city. I have a friend who worked on it and has been telling me for almost a year now just how bad this movie is. That it's actually no good.

Now, from what I just saw I would say it looks better than I was expecting but since my friend actually worked on it I will trust his judgment over this trailer as trailers are made to make movies look good.

YEEEESSS!!

I am thinking of starting smoking just to spite the florida quitline commercial before every video!!!!

In other news, Tarsem can do no wrong! The stories are great, visuals are stunning and he is still under the radar enough that he can still do what he wants with a film!

Something's off....

I dunno but this trailer is a bit weird. Is it just me? The effects and action?

Well then.

I understand that some people can have the same idea and not realize it's been done before, but I find it pretty amazing that the the whole 'arrows flying in slow motion and hitting four different opponents simultaneously' scene in the end of the trailer is literally taken shot-for-shot (even the same angles and close ups) from House of Flying Daggers.

The scene is here, just skip to the 2:23ish mark:

The voice over is less annoying than the advertisement I had to watch to get to see the voice over on the trailer advertisement.

Don't know about the style yet

I think I need to get used to it, but I am looking forward to see our new Superman in an action role!

So this is the 5th trailer in a row that will not play for me. Does anyone have any ideas as to why?

The lack of the famous Tarsem visuals is somewhat disheartening

Cheers Tarsem

It looks like a cross between BARON MUNCHAUSEN and 300... and I'm perfectly okay with that. I'm a huge Tarsem fan and loved THE FALL... So, bring it!
