UPDATED With HD! IMMORTALS Trailer With The Single Most Awesome Bow Ever!

Published at: April 27, 2011, 7:51 a.m. CST by Nordling

Nordling here.

This isn't the official release of the trailer as it's not in HD, but Slashfilm was kind enough to embed this IMMORTALS trailer and so we present it to you in 360p glory.  Once we get the HD version, we'll post it up.

UPDATE: And now it's in HD!

I want that bow.  That shot alone sold this film to me.

Nordling, out.

    by Ashen Shugar

    at Apple's trailers. And sad to say, I loved the visuals of THE FALL, but here it looks like evrything was shot in a room. See the broken boulder ? Looks so fake. I guess the low-cost production of 300 does not fit the visionary director that is Tarsem...

  • That's why it looks off, Cobra. That indicates a thread of fail running through this thing.

  • Would've been far better and much more marketable than the Dungeons & Dragons film they did make. Oh, and this looks fucking awful. Bargain basement '300' anyone? What IS Mickey Rourke wearing?

    FROM THE PRODUCERS OF

    by zom-bot.com

    why do they think we care about that shit? o, it's from the same guys that bankrolled a similar movie- therefore it must be as good or similar because producers don't just invest in any old thing. oh and they are as important and influential to the film as directors and writers. pft. i can only imagine there are a handful of producers in hollywood anymore...a few that hold the monopoly on things...so it ould stand to reason that every film should say 'from the producers of' some other recent film. whoopie shit.

    by sfgeek

    Tarsem Singh really sticks to his vision... this looks a lot like The Cell and The Fall, which, when all is said and done, works for me. The Cell was poop, but The Fall was magical. I'm in for the vision of this film and Mickey Rourke. That dude was robbed of an Oscar a couple of years ago... I'll go to my grave believing that.

    by Andrew Coleman

    The action looks solid at least and not "lets shake the shit out of everything so you can't tell what's happening" or worse "lets blur everything to make it look real but what we're actually doing is covering up that we can't film an action scene". I'm for sure checking this out but 11/11/11 is a while from now so they have time to work on graphics.

    by Chewtoy

    From the effects to the design to the acting to the script... Everything about that trailer feels clunky. The 300 trailers had great pacing laying out a simple but compelling story through some good lines and imagery. This didn't have any of that. This had the villain in a spike-rimmed bunny hood.

    iTunes trailers

    by the_one_that_says_BADMUTHAFUCKER

    just caught the trailer there in HD and I liked it. I like Tarem as a director. His visual sense is amazing. The Fall was a highly underrated film. To those complaining that the film looks like 300, well shit, just about every movie has one or more other movies that has the same visual asthetic. I'm not going to NOT see a movie because the director or cinematographer chose to use filters on the lens giving the film a certain look that another film had. I'm not going to NOT go see a movie because the director chose to use CGI over practical effects like all other movies that used CGI over practical effects. The method used to make 300 and this movie is just that, a method. All films share a common method in one way or another. Fuck that, I'm going to see it. I got better shit to do than cry over a trailer.

    I was about to say the same thing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M130Wk25p4 Watch from 2:23 on. Virtually identical (minus the whole glowy bit). Seeing as a lot of people said he borrowed quite a bit from Baraka for The Fall, maybe Tarsem just like to reappropriate interesting shots from other movies.

    This looks like a lame rip off AND kind of awesome, I dont know how to feel either. Like meeting a really cool, wonderful fat chick. And I'm kinda shocked that Tarsem did this. Didn't he toute himself on not using any CG at all for The Fall but now turns in a CG fest? Odd polar opposite for his next film.

  • April 27, 2011, 12:03 p.m. CST

    Like it.

    by blackwood

    A lot. I liked (parts of) THE CELL and (all of) THE FALL. I'm genuinely digging the look - stylized and stagey and almost Julia Taymor-ian and I'm totally cool with that. Also digging that, so far, there are no CGI monsters that look like the same variation of LOTR trolls that have been in every single fantasy film since.

    by JillianneSix

    In every way. I still don't understand how the hell Worthington came out of nowhere and landed leading roles in THREE big budget movies. He probably sucked James Cameron's cock, because he sure as fuck can't act. Henry Cavill, on the other hand, is likable and jumps easily (almost chameleon-like) from role to role. Boy can act his ass off.

    While this is not the best traielr i ever seen (understatment there), i suspect this movie is far better then this traielr makes it out to be to some. I can smell a better movie hidden behind a bad trailer. I have seen too many bad traielrs of good movies, and this just look like one of those. Too often, traielrs aremade by idiots in the marketing department who have not a care to stay true to the mood of the movie but to imitate the trailer of the latest hype commercial sucessful dumb bullshit movie of the moment. This trailer reeks of this. I really don't think this trailer does the movie justice. I really don't. I have a better feeling for this movie then this trailer makes it look to be.

    Movies without sets

    by shran

    Are really starting to look dated. I'm pretty bored with the artificial look of the "scenery". It was a curiosity in Sky Captain or whatever the heck that was but it just never got much better. The fakeness of it takes me out of the story, personally. I understand it's use as a set extension but when the whole flick is computer generated it just looks flat and fake to me. Now you are in Toy Story territory without the charm, wit, and nuance. I have no real idea where all the particulars of budget a movie go but I think some of it ought to be spent on locations and sets now. You have an entire planet to choose from. It doesn't seem to work for me to create a fake version of something that actually exists. Build a world where the sky is green and the oceans are red and the plants float around freely on a computer. But a cliff overlooking an ocean? I can drive a couple hours from my inland home and see one. I guess it was easier to just use the one from 300.

    The fake scenery looks like shite. And the Venus Flytrap Mandible Helmet may be the single dumbest looking piece of costume nonsense in a year that includes Thor and GL. And what is it this 'hem" of which you speak? Do their trousers need fixing? Seriously, I could try to read your typing all day. Loads of fun and it's a good interpretive mental workout.

    I FOR ONE CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE THIS

    by Spudwick30

    I've loved everything Tarsem has done...so far The Fall and The Cell are both awesome fantasies. The one thing I don't like about this is: I wished they kept the original title of the film.... THE WAR OF THE GODS.... that would've rocked.

    I'm Sorry, But That Looks Fucking Horrendous

    by Crow3711

    I mean, really. And you can even tell in every shot that the actors have no idea what they are doing or acting with, because absolutely nothing in that movie besides the actors actually exists. I predict a 22% RT rating.

  • He had his comeback shot, and he went ahead and made a bunch of shit. One of the best actors on the planet, and he loves movies where he doesn't have to act. I don't get it.

    Bunny helmet

    by quentintarantado

    The one meant to look like scissors. From afar, it looks like bunny ears. It belongs in a Playboy commercial

    this is the weirdest combination of cheap/expensive ever

    by soma_with_the_paintbox

    Like they only had money for rubber armor, latex rocks and mylar capes because they spent too much money glazing every shot with HDR cum. I do like the shot of the soldiers tumbling through space; reminds me of Rembrandt or Michelangelo.

    This is the most derivitive trailer I've ever seen...

    by Johnno

    The slo-mo, the spartan-esque stuff, the inspirational speech to the soldiers, except the dialogue sounds dumber and more cliche, and the action looks crappier, and even the yelling doesn't sound loud enough... Why not just replay 300 in a theatre with a different colour filter intersped with some action scenes of Ishida from Bleach? Maybe they can keep some of the more original cool shots from the trailer in too, but those will be far and few between...

    TO-DAAAY we fight for honor!

    by NoHubris

    TO-DAAY was a good day! No barkin from the dogs, no smog! Mamma made breakfast with no hog! All kidding aside (along with apologies to ICE CUBE), I think the line "Today we fight for HONOR!" is meant to be their version of "This is SPARTA!"

  • April 27, 2011, 9:39 p.m. CST

    umm.. that was crap folks

    by MurderMostFowl

    That looked entirely like outtakes from 300. And is there even a story? Yes, the bow looks cool... like the bow from the guy on the old Dungeons and Dragon's cartoon actually. But um.... does the guy have a "shoot 3 arrows get one free!" coupon or something? ( the sequence near the end... yes I know this was probably just an editing mistake on the trailer )

  • In other words...its more McDonalds cinema for people who never ate an Apple... sure, rots yer teeth, but its still shit Stop pretending a single ticket sale says anything about the quality of ANYTHING You sound like a fucking 12 yr old i hope for your sake that IS your age

    Totally Gay

    by Queefer Sutherland

    Maybe even more gay than 300. That's not a big deal, but the fact that it looks as STUPID as 300 is DEFINITELY a big deal. That looks FUCKING stupid. Anybody excited over this limp dick of a movie has got to be a fucking idiot.

  • I'm ashamed of you all.

  • You could tell he had his own distinctive skill behind the camera in THE CELL and THE FALL, flawed as they both were. This looks like the studio forced him into making a watered-down '300' clone almost shot-for-shot. The slo-mo whip, the sea cliffs, a lot of this looks really almost intentionally redundant -- and I can't imagine why they would want it to look like it was stolen, so I'm pretty mystified.

    is this direct to DVD?

    The Cell ...

    by GINGE_MUPPET

    Underrated .... recently watched it again and only Lopez stops it from being full-on fantastic. She did her best but most people can't get past her casting and slate the movie for it.

    Video games did that bow better

    by wellk

    Kratos has the same exact thing in the God of War games except he can fire off arrows 10x faster. Hell, even Legend of Zelda had Light Arrows. Nothing new. Movie looks alright at best.

  • Then dont blow on about how 'big it will be' nobody with a brain gives a fuck and it will prove nothing if Transformers - Fart of the moon is HUGE. shit is shit, people love shit

  • It's hardly Saint Crispian Day's Speech material, is it?

    That Rourke accent is fucking terrible

    by Ray_Tango

    Right up there with all the shit accents in Alexander. Thinking of Angelina Jolie's Transylvanian accent still makes me laugh. Why do people keep casting Rourke in roles where he can't just play himself? It NEVER EVER works. He's simply got no range, whatsoever or doesn't anymore anyway.

    I am a fan of everything Tarsem has done.

    by Ironhelix

    I am not so sure about this though. Rourke was a fucking AWFUL choice. Some of it comes off downright silly. I smell someone meddling with Tarsem's work to make it more "mainstream". I don't know... a little disappointed.

    Dude, you expecting the new Superman actor to be in a movie set in mythological ancient greece dressed up and looking like Superman? Thjey are actors, being chamelonic in their apearence is their stock in trade. And british actors are excelent at that, the chameleon thing.

    by AsimovLives

    Angeline Jolie's accent in ALEXANDER was albanian, which is fitting since Olympias, the mother of Alexander, was from the place where in today's time lies Albania. There was far more though put to the accents in ALEXANDER then what online smart-ass geekoids might even imagine.
