By Jolt17 - 11/8/2011



The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion and his murderous Heraklion army rampage across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission. As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus vows to avenge his mother, who was killed in one of Hyperion’s brutal raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra, her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final, desperate battle for the future of humanity.

I think this movie could be entertaining...not oscar material, but could be good.

I like the fact they are putting the gods in the action, they never put the gods in the fights in movies.
Isabel Lucas (Athena) is damn sexy
l0rdleg0las - 11/8/2011, 8:04 PM
That looked [frick]ing awesome!
TerminatorMode - 11/8/2011, 8:15 PM
that was sick....like wow - i mean i dunno that was just super cool for me haha

the more i see of tarsem singhs work makes me think he would have been the perfect choice for the last airbender...certainly better than m. knight
TerminatorMode - 11/8/2011, 8:21 PM
ayah "the more i see of tarsem singh's work the more i think..."
JDUKE25 - 11/8/2011, 8:35 PM

Valar1 - 11/8/2011, 8:58 PM
looks like every other one of his movies- ass
SanDevil77 - 11/8/2011, 9:41 PM
damn...that looked good
BlairCo - 11/8/2011, 11:04 PM
For some reason, I don't like the look of this film. The costumes look ridiculous and the cinematography looks atrocious. But the choreography looks rather good. I'm not really excited in seeing this film.
superman7 - 11/9/2011, 3:40 AM
noooo! I missed it!
superman7 - 11/9/2011, 4:21 AM
you can still watch it at:
http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00045144.html

I thougth that was badass though!

@ BlairCo:
It does take some getting used to. When i first saw the style i thought it looked horrible, but i've come to like it. Alot actually.

but does anyone know who the god with the sword is? The one that gets killed?
We have Poseidon, Zeus, Athena, Heracles, and...?

Its probably not apollo since he's not supposed to appear in this. Not Ares, that's someone different. Dfinitely not Hephaestus... Is that Hermes?
calin88 - 11/9/2011, 5:46 AM
that ... was ... horrible, but still, can't wait for the movie
Greengo - 11/9/2011, 5:58 AM
Wow. I wasn't really excited to see this film until this.
gambgel - 11/9/2011, 6:00 AM
the action here has more detail than the action in most of action movies, like the ones from this year, specially Thor
EarOne - 11/9/2011, 6:14 AM
nope, gotta give credits to where it's due. and based on this clip, Tarsem deserves all of it. sure, since this came after 300, you just can't deny some similarities, but, the fighting style is rather different and cooler here.

after being disappointed by his previous work (yes, talkin bout THE CELL), i'm glad Tarsem can finally show that he does have the stuff. i'm really looking forward to the day when the powers that be hire him to do an adaptation of the ancient Indian epic, MAHABHARATA. he seems to be born to do the definitive film version of that story.

but, after seeing this clip, i'm scratching my head as to WHY Marvel didn't sign him up for Thor 2..instead this Jenkins gal... this clip's pretty much a BETTER and clearer version of the thor & the gang vs. the frost giants scene.
shadow314 - 11/9/2011, 6:15 AM
holy crap I am even more excited now
GUNSMITH - 11/9/2011, 6:20 AM
NICE...NICE!
BackwardGalaxy - 11/9/2011, 6:56 AM
Um, I don't get the hate. What was so bad about that?
PapaMidnite - 11/9/2011, 7:02 AM
Ok, cool, but i'm getting tired of slo mo
nordberg - 11/9/2011, 7:15 AM
Looked pretty goofy but I admit that I'm not a fan of Tarsem's work (The Cell, The Fall). For me, he epitomizes the cliche of style over substance.
ThaMessenger07 - 11/9/2011, 7:22 AM
Stupendous! Zeus(Hammer), Heracles(Bare Hands/Chains), Athena(Twin Kama), & Apollo(Sword)

That was wicked awesome! Beautiful Choreography!
ThaMessenger07 - 11/9/2011, 7:23 AM
Oh & Poseidon(Trident)
soberchimera - 11/9/2011, 7:32 AM
Why does Zeus have a hammer? Thor's gonna sue somebody. It would make sense if Hephaestus had a hammer since he's a blacksmith, but Zeus? C'mon man.
REDSTORM - 11/9/2011, 7:42 AM
I wanted to like it... but I honestly didn't.
nordberg - 11/9/2011, 8:00 AM
@Jackson

I hear you and I too enjoy the occasional big, dumb, guilty pleasure action movie when it's done well. I guess I just don't much care for Tarsem's visual style or the pretentiousness that's inherent to his films. And here he seems to be doing nothing more than aping Snyder... and not very well at that.

I suspect there's a reason why this hasn't been prescreened for critics...
Fantine - 11/9/2011, 8:10 AM
I really hope its not panned :( It looks good and fun.

And that cinematography looks like a painting come to life.
ThaMessenger07 - 11/9/2011, 8:19 AM
@ soberchimera61, Hephaestus would use a hammer to make Zeus's lightning bolts. But before Hephaestus Zeus used the same hammer to make his own.
NightmareB4 - 11/9/2011, 8:26 AM
I was a little confused...Athena and Heracles...they're just fine right?
Emjeed - 11/9/2011, 8:41 AM
I love this! going to get my ticket right now... i love how some parties are moving in slo mo and some are at fast pace.. very nice.. very nice indeed..

@Teabag I like Snyder too.. btw.. how was your cherry dip yesterday? ;)
ThaMessenger07 - 11/9/2011, 8:43 AM
Athena Got Impaled and Apollo was dropped with a blow to the head. Not sure what happens to the rest.
BmanHall - 11/9/2011, 8:46 AM
That scene just screams God of War movie.
NightmareB4 - 11/9/2011, 8:53 AM
@ThaMessenger07

But they're fine right? They're gonna make it home for Christmas this year?
Shaman - 11/9/2011, 8:59 AM
Tarsem does share a style with Snyder but i'll always prefer Snyder over Tarsem. Their execution is where their visual differences lie and i feel Tarsem is slightly grittier where as Snyder is cleaner and sharper. They are both visual masters but my heart belongs to Snyder.
Action - 11/9/2011, 9:03 AM
the action scenes look good, i love how they slow it down so you see the gore.
joeker - 11/9/2011, 10:02 AM
i loved it i werent expecting something like that and it does remind me of 300 which isnt really a bad thing
126thst - 11/9/2011, 10:56 AM
Does anyone else find something off with the special effects? Good choreography, but graphics seem low budget to me..and it feels like i'm watching 300..having said that, i'm still gonna give it a shot..Cool idea.
jimoakley666 - 11/9/2011, 12:30 PM
Gore? Seriously? This is steps away from being a cartoon, it's so fake and flaccid. Boring crap.
superman7 - 11/9/2011, 12:57 PM
@ BmanHall:

YEAH IT DOES! hahah

I think its heracles with the chains that makes it so god-of-war-esque
superman7 - 11/9/2011, 1:01 PM
I love the people that say that this looks fake... have you ever seen a titan's skull split open because a god slashed it through his skull?

I didn't think so. It doesn't look SciFi Channel fake. It just looks sort of CGI.

I don't have a problem with that, as long as the choreography behind it is cool.
And this choreography looks better than 300. I think this looks awesome!

Even though its completely historically inaccurate!
superman7 - 11/9/2011, 1:02 PM
* slashed it through it with a trident?
