Before mortals inhabited the earth, immortals fought wars for mythic supremacy. Evil King Hyperion has amassed a bloodthirsty army of soldiers in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. 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 and they remain powerless to stop Hyperion… until a peasant named Theseus comes forth as their only hope.
Combining classical Greek mythology with 3D technology, The Immortals was released to theaters last November. Based loosely based on the Greek myths of Theseus and the Minotaur and the Titanomachy, The Immortals grossed over $200 million, most of it outside the US while garnering mixed reviews. Rated R, it was directed by Tarsem Singh and starred Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto, and Mickey Rourke. Critics gave good marks to the settings and computer graphic tech work but felt the story was boring, even for Greek mythology.
On March 6th, The Immortals became available on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D formats. It was released in a DVD/Blu-ray/Digital Copy set and also in a Blu-ray/Blu-ray 3D/Digital Copy set. The disc has a running time of 110 minutes and includes the following extras and features:
