'Immortals' trailer: The working title was apparently 'Clash of the 300 Gods of War in Troy, and also Mickey Rourke'

Posted on

I was a total nerd for Greek mythology when I was a kid. Minotaurs and winged horses, super-powered heroes on epic quests, anxious gods who live on a glowy mountaintop — there was a lot to love. (I liked Norse mythology, too, but that’s another story.) So I’m pretty excited about Immortals, the Greek epic starring future-Superman Henry Cavill as a noble hero and Mickey Rourke as a vicious conqueror. The first trailer looks equal parts 300, Troy, and Clash of the Titans, with just a dash of the great God of War videogame series, but I’m hopeful that arty auteur Tarsem Singh will make Immortals something extra special. Check out the full trailer after the jump…
