‘Immortals’ Red Band Clip: Gods Vs. Titans

immortals red band clip Immortals Red Band Clip: Gods Vs. Titans

Filmmaker Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) offers his own take on the swords and sandal epic with Immortals, which features a pretty well-to-do cast that includes Henry Cavaill (the new Superman in Man of Steel), Mickey Rourke, Stephen Dorff, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, and John Hurt.

Trailers and TV spots released for Immortals have largely focused on playing up the film’s evocative visual style, while also hinting at a plot that utilizes elements similar to those in recent ancient world action flicks – be it 300, Clash of the Titans, and even (to a lesser degree) Conan the Barbarian.

Today we have a red band clip from Immortals that is (stylistically) reminiscent of 300 and Conan in particular – judging by the sheer plethora of digitally-enhanced bloodshed, decapitations, and brutal killings on display here. Early word pegs Immortals as being far from a nonstop action-fest; nonetheless, when there is fighting to be done, it seems safe to say the film will deliver some brutal bang for your buck.

To clarify – in this early Immortals clip, deities are decked out in sleek gold armor and led by none other than the good ol’ god of sky and thunder, Zeus (Evans, who also played Apollo in Clash of the Titans). Their charcoal-colored opponents here are none other than… well, actual Titans.

Watch that NSFW Immortals clip below and see what we mean:

Here is an official synopsis for Immortals:

The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army rampage 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 his mother, who was killed in one of Hyperion’s brutal 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.

  1. That was legendary!

  2. It looks so unfathomably stupid, cheesy and over-the-top that it just might be fun, if this clip is anything to go by.

    • I completely agree, stylistically it looks fantastic, but the whole hero for the gods plot is Stupid!

  3. Who are the gods in this clip? Zeus, Poisidon, Athena, and who…

    • I thought the dude with the hammer was Hephaestus (hammer is associated with him) but he is normally depicted crippled. So I guess he is Zeus.

      I thought the girl was Demeter (goddess of harvest because of her scythe). Or Artemis only because after she dies the expression from the next dude face — whom I asssume is Apollo (her brother). But she could still very well be Athena.

      All and all, the only one im sure about is Poseidon. lol.

      • The Dude with the hammer was Zeus, the girl was Zeus daughter Athena, Ares was killed so he cant be there so idk about the others

    • The one with the Hammer is Zeus, obviously the one with the trident is Poseidon, The girl was indeed Athena, Guy with the sword was Aries and the big fella who used the chains with devastating effect was Heracles, or Hercules.

      • the guy with the sword was not aries aries was the guy with the mohawk helmet who was killed by his father zeus for helping the humans. he basically got wipped by like a fire wip in the middle of the movie.

      • Ares was killed by Zeus so your wrong about Ares others are right though

  4. Somehow I pictured the gods of greek mythology to look older, wiser, and just look physically imposing, giving off the image of “not to be screwed with.” And the Titans are pretty much universally thought of as, well, titanic. What I see here is a bunch of pretty boys fighting the “God of War” zombies.

    • Agreed. Not really a fan of the visual design. The titans were the former “gods” before the Olympians so I dont know whats really going on here. They are nirmally depicted as giant like.

      • I agree with both of you guys. And man, what a CGI-fest – I felt like I was watching a video game.

        Vic

    • I remember them saying that if you were a God that could control all things (such as your age) you would keep yourself in your “prime” (aka 25-35) and not be old. That was there vision of things anyway.

      I wish they were more physically imposing though instead of being stick figures.

      Stille xcited for this though looks fun

    • Speaking of God of War, their Titans and gods look 10,000 times more awesome than what we have here. At least GoW’s titans were huge and monstrous.

  5. These titans seem far to easy to kill.

    • Well, they are getting punched, slammed, stabbed by GODS. Not like they are being hit with the strength of a normal person

  6. Wow, epically brutal. Though I do agree about the gods and titans not looking exactly right. The over the top action and well I’ve got to use the word again brutatility is jaw dropping.

  7. The action will be good and fairly entertaining but I agree the look of the gods is a little off.

  8. @shadow
    Ye but I thought the Titans were always the biggest threat to the gods?
    I’m probably wrong!

    • No, you’re not wrong. According to myth, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades were born from a Titan, Kronos. The Titans were suppose to be as strong as the gods. The scene was good but I felt it would have been better if the Titans were shown to be harder to beat (more than 1 hit).

  9. How would this scene go if Kratos was in it????

    • Everyone would die… Man, God, Titan, it makes no difference haha

  10. That was epic!

  11. Wait a second! The Titans were suppose to be as strong as the gods; why were they easily ripped apart but when a Titan hit a god, they didn’t seem to be hurt that much? The scene looked good but I think it would have been better if the Titans were harder to beat.

    • Im hoping those are not the “real” titans. Immortal lackies.

  12. Pros: No shaky cam (aka Greengrass-cam)

    Cons: Whoever it was getting killed left and right werent much of enemies. The slayers looked like normal young people. Too much slow motion action.

    • I also thought same about slow motion, but then I realised that slow motion is “normal” speed, because in the scene gods and titans are fighting in super speed. When titans die they slow down from super speed to normal speed. So it actually makes sense.

  13. My God! They look like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz!

    When a man’s an empty kettle
    He should be on his mettle
    And yet I’m torn apart
    Just because I’m presumin’
    That I could be a human
    If I only had a heart

  14. Looks like fun.

  15. too much complaining.. enjoy the movie for wat it is, Mortal Kombat!!

  16. OMG!!!I am so game!!!

  17. junk :(

  18. Don’t F*ck with Poseidon!

  19. Reviews are coming in and it doesn’t look promising. I’m still going to see it, though (but not in 3D).

  20. I’m surprised that my girlfriend [eagerly] wants me to see this with her this weekend. The whole “from the producers of 300″ thing is the selling point of this movie, I feel like. This looks awful (in my opinion, I know it’s not fact). And I’m not one to criticize unjustly, for sure, cause no one likes a downer, and I hate those guys that just say every movie looks bad. But really? The costume design looks terrible in my opinion (soooo cheesy looking) and like said before, these are just skinny dudes (with an uncharismatic presence) in helmets that and armor that happen to look incredibly like plastic.

    I was gonna go into detail about the scene, but I know that no one wants to hear it. I hope this movie is really good, because I have to see it this weekend, but every single thing I see regarding this movie really is not convincing. I loved 300, and even Sucker Punch (which was virtually panned by critics), but this just looks like rubbish at every turn.

    I want Henry Cavill to succeed, as well as everyone attached to the film, because I know their careers are affected, but for some reason this one just doesn’t look like a keeper to me.

    This is definitely not aimed at any of you guys who are eagerly anticipating this movie, so I don’t mean to offend anyone. It’s just that after seeing so many eager responses, I felt the need to air a dissenting opinion.

  21. The titans in this movie are supposed to have strength in numbers. Remember the Gods are technically stronger because they did win the war and have enough power to kill thousands of titans. Personally when I saw this movie I was disappointed to not see giant monsters who shook the earth. As I love God of War that’s sort of what I was expecting but then I thought about it.. The reason God of War worked was because it was a video game and more things can be achieved in a virtual world. Many people generally hate giant climactic boss fights at the end of movies and video games (cheesy & stereotypical) so it takes a lot of movie savvy to pull them off. making the titans huge overwhelming creatures would have been more CGI and the fighting would have been not as smooth and visually impressive. the titans would just be storming around smashing things. and those of you who have played God of War know what I’m talking about. So i think i know why the writers did what they did with the titans.

  22. I was also slightly disappointed to not see the gods use their powers that they possess but this also makes sense. It would just not be fair or make for as much of a fight. Although it would have been cool to see.

  23. I was so disappointed in this movie. The Titans are supposed to be Monstrosities that gave birth to the Gods. These titans were like zombie Gods. And Zues with all his power released not one bolt of lightning that we all know he’s capable of producing. Was it me or did the Male Gods look a bit aadrogynous. They talked too much and not really enough action for me. I felt like I didnt see anything different from 300

  24. POESEIDON damn man i thought Zeus was powerful now that i look a Poseidon god i don’t wanna screw with him DUDE he just dived into the water KA-BAM water nearly killed every1 Zeus looked small well Poseidon did jump from the heavens but i was expecting more gods like hypnoses,Hades,Demeter,Artemis,etc.I was just disapointed that their weren’t many gods in their plus none of them used their true power like Zeus didn’t the myth say that Zeus was given a master lightning bolt or lightning bolts the action was awesome but like if u have watched the movie continue reading this comment but like they were in a mountain right at the end of the battle everything falls to the ground the whole mountain instead why doesn’t Zeus just like shoot a big lightning bolt down when he goes back to Olympus ya know blow all the titans up.
