Poseideon isn't Wet in IMMORTALS
Gossip Boy drew my attention to this entirely-not-wet-image of Kellan Lutz from the upcoming IMMORTALS. Lutz plays Poseidon, god of the seas, which should give us lots of opportunities to see him emerging glistening from the ocean. Directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell) and written by Charles Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides, Immortals also stars Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”), Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), Luke Evans (Robin Hood), John Hurt (Hellboy) and Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2).
In IMMORTALS the ruthless King Hyperion (Rourke) leads his bloodthirsty army on a murderous rampage across Greece to find a deadly weapon that will destroy humanity. A mortal chosen by Zeus (Evans) named Theseus (Cavill) must lead the fight against Hyperion and his evil army with the fate of mankind and the Gods at stake. Lutz portrays Poseidon while Pinto takes on the role of Phaedra, an oracle who can see possible futures, but only if she remains a virgin.
As usual, I’m a bit nonplussed by the actual story. I’m glad that it’s a fairly original picture, but it feels a bit like a do-over for CLASH OF THE TITANS (which is already getting a do-over with TITANS 2). Plus, it’s also a 3D flick. And 3D is another of those warning alarms that screams “DANGER WILL ROBINSON! DANGER!”
