The comparisons between "Immortals" and "300" are inevitable, but the stars of Tarsem Singh's big budget take on Greek mythology say that the flick is a lot more than "just a guy movie." Sure it's got lots of violence, slo-mo and special effects, but it's also got the impressive visual stamp of Singh which is something that can be appreciated by everyone.
"This is Tarsem Singh we're talking about here, it's a visual spectacle, and the 3-D only adds to that," leading man Henry Cavill said. "I will say in the past I've been skeptical of [3-D, but] after seeing this, the technology has come along so far. This is incredible, and all the violence in the movie, if people don't like that, it's actually art-ified. It becomes a 'beautific' ballet of blood if you will."
Plus, the ladies will love the film's "incredible love story."
"You often think of these Greek epics -- it skirts over all that stuff -- but you've got an incredibly hardened man who's hardened his heart to anything at this stage, and there's a woman who manages to soften him so much so that he starts to think of things which he's never even considered in the past," Cavill added.
His costars were similarly enthused about "Immortals." Cavill's onscreen love interest, Frieda Pinto, found the visual effects to be its best selling point.
"I think it's a different take on the whole Greek mythology and that's going to be the biggest surprise," she said. "Visually it's not like anything, it's not like any of the big-budget action-packed films that you've seen before."
And Luke Evans, who is currently filming "The Hobbit" in New Zealand with Peter Jackson, made the big statement that "Immortals" is "like nothing I've ever seen."
"Like Henry said, Tarsem at the helm with his imagination and his enthusiasm and his ideas, it just married so well with what he was doing and the final production," Evans said. "The values of it are just incredible, and we've got this 3-D thing and it just comes alive, it really does."
