Trailer Watch: Immortals trailer #2

Via (weird, right?) comes the second trailer for Tarsem Singh’s 300-style swords-and-weird-accents spectacle, Immortals. It still looks kinda cool, but we’ll see if Tarsem Singh can actually work some real storytelling into all this style, where Zack Snyder failed.

The film stars Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Freida Pinto, John Hurt and Mickey Rourke, and it opens (in both 2D and 3D) on November 11.

    I wasn’t impressed by trailer one, so this doesn’t do much for me. It’s as though we’re only supposed to focus on the hunky actors and effects and not notice that they don’t seem to inhabit a real, concrete, believable world. Hercules the TV show had more of a sense of place.

    • I don’t think that a believable world is necessary for EVERY movie. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, for instance, wasn’t designed to look realistic at all, but it was super spooky and beautiful. Art direction can be used to all sorts of different effect.

        That’s actually why I didn’t enjoy The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari very much, either.

        Plus, I would argue that, although I didn’t enjoy it much, TCoDC was innovative and surrealistically art directed and not comparable to another 300-esque hack-n-slash.
