Oh Hai, I’m Mickey Rourke, Do You Like my Hat?
Calling it right now, this will get Cosplay by a whole bunch of nerds at the rest of the years comic conventions. Oh, and other movie posters for ‘The Immortals’.
So, what you’re looking at is the new set of character posters for the possible geek boner film ‘The Immortals’. Henry Cavill is Theseus, Mickey Rourke is King Hyperion, Freida Pinto is Phaedra and Stephen Dorff is Stavros. What all of that went over your head? You need to do some Greek Mythology research. Also, you can’t deny the coolness that is Mickey Rourkes Evil Bunny Hat.
Here is a synopsis that is laden with Greek Myth Errors, not due to me, but this is the actual BS that the movie company is using, and really changing Greek Mythos to suit their needs. (Sorry, but I looove Ancient Greece and it’s History, get off my lawn.):
Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes…
