There are three genres I like most, United States History with emphasis on the Civil War, Greek Mythology with emphasis on Hercules and Poseidon, and Science Fiction with emphasis on Star Trek Captains, Kirk and Janeway.
Coming on the 11th day, of the 11th month, in the 11th year of the millenium, The Gods Need A Hero and it's in the form of the IMMORTALS.
And the storyline?
Years after the Titanomachy, the Titan Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) declares war on humanity. He searches for the Epirus Bow, a legendary weapon created by the war god Ares, which will allow him to free the rest of the Titans from Tartarus and take revenge on the Olympians who brought about their downfall. In accordance with ancient laws, the gods are unable to take a side in the war between Hyperion and humanity. It is left to a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill), chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) and accompanied by the priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and a slave (Stephen Dorff), to protect his homeland and save the gods.A trailer hasn't been released, but the images down below will give you an insight into what you can expect from the creator (Tarsem Singh ) of 300 and The Cell. He will be creating a masterpiece and I'm really excited about it.
The movie is going to be chock-full of gorgeous guys, with equally gorgeous bodies. So many, I can't even post all of them at this time. I will use these images and comments courtesy of blogger, Tyrell who put these together.
First up, the picture at the top of the page is Daniel Sharman who plays Ares in the upcoming flick. In Greek Mythology, he is son of Zeus and lover of Aphrodite (playa playa). I think that him and Luke look very similar proving the apple clearly doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Or in Greek terms, thank Zeus lightning struck twice.
Meet Luke Evans who will be taking on the heavy duty role of Zeus. No big deal, just playing Greek mythology’s “Big Man Upstairs”. I wonder how big his lightning rod is? Luke also played Apollo in Clash of the Titans. This man loves to be a god.
I couldn’t let this gorgeous gal’s movie poster go to waste. This is Isabel Lucas who plays Athena, goddess of of civilization and warfare among other things as well as Zeus’ daughter and brother to Ares. She’s a big player of power in this film so watch out.
We are all very familiar with this hunk of a man, Superman's Henry Cavill. He takes on the role of the peasant, Theasus, who will soon become an Athenian hero. With a body like that, he can be my hero any day (or time period).
And finally, Kellan Lutz who will be taking on the role of Poseidon. Doesn’t he put the motion in your ocean?
