Wahooo another look at some trailers for a few movies that I am excited to see. This week another sword and sandals send off with Immortals and what I though was another Tony Scott movie, but it’s not, Colombiana.
You know, I liked 300. I enjoyed the graphic novel stylization and monochromatic color choices. Immortals…looks exactly like 300. I get that the producers and studio is wanting to have another hit on their hands, but I guess since this is a property that isn’t well known and they need to anchor it on to something people might recognize, I can forgive. To be honest, the Immortals looks stunning. I wouldn’t expect less in the visuals department since Tarsem Singh is attached to this movie. If you haven’t checked out “The Fall” or “The Cell” from director Singh, you are missing out on some delicious eye-candy. While the movies weren’t strong in the story department, you will be amazed at what he can do art and style wise.
Immortals looks like it will be a good time, visually of course, as I am sure that the movie will be filled with a lot of yelling towards the sky and “hoorahs” all around. Also what the fuck is up with that venus fly-trap looking helmet that Mickey Rourke has on?
Woah woah woah, you mean to tell me that this movie has Zoe Saldana slinking around in various catsuits, dispatching people ruthlessly, and is written by Luc Besson? I might as well just make the check out now to Besson and call it a day. Although this is not directed by Besson, but rather by Olivier Megaton (really, Megaton) I am in just to see Zoe Saldana kicking ass and looking drop dead gorgeous in the process. How dare you all appeal to the red-blooded American in me. DAMN YOU!!!
