Immortals Trailer: I. Am. SPARTA (Or Tarsem Singh's Weak Facsimile Thereof).

Apple has the new teaser trailer for Tarsem Singh’s (The Cell, The Fall) trailer for Immortals below, which you can watch by clicking on the image (I’ll replace it with an embed once its available). In the meantime, you can feast your eyes on this ripped-from-the-Sparta Press Herald Headlines 300 clone, another visually striking but ultimately dumb-looking project from Singh, who — if you think about it — was really the Zack Snyder before Zack Snyder: All flash, no substance. And the thing is, if you’re going to make a 300 clone, it’s difficult to out-flash Snyder on style, so at least you’d think that Singh would put a little substance on the bone. At least from the looks of the trailer — lots of sweaty men with bows and arrows and booby women with boobs — it looks like he’s done nothing for the sort.

But hey! Mickey Rourke, the future Superman Henry Cavill, and the lovely Freida Pinto star in the film.
