UPDATE: And now, the first trailer for the film has hit, and it looks really great.  Just like the preview footage, sans annoying voice over.  Check it out below!

Now, if only TV voiceovers weren’t so damn annoying, this would kick major ass.

Thanks to E! News, we have our first look at Tarsem Singh’s upcoming film, IMMORTALS, in action, and if you can get past the aforementioned announcer talking over it, you should be relatively impressed. At least I was.

The film stars Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, John Hurt, and Mickey Rourke, and tells the story of Theseus, as he battles against the Titans. The film is Tarsem’s follow-up to his wonderful, yet really underrated film, THE FALL, but it appears as though he’s back on his game with this project. Check it out after the break.

Personally, while I see the obvious comparisons to a film like 300, I don’t think that’s really all that fair.  The film here seems far more polished, and doesn’t appear to rely as heavily on the speed ramping that Snyder has now made his go-to move.  The scope looks huge, and when he’s forced to do action, Cavill looks like he can kick some ass, which for Superman, means a lot. Hopefully, this thing can live up to the hype.

What do you think?
