Are we entirely sure that the upcoming fantasy action flick Immortals wasn't directed by Julie Taymor? Because we gotta tell you, the costume designs showed off in the new character one-sheets released today are officially biz-onkers. Check out Ares down there. The spikes on his helmet have got to be compensating for someting. How does he even get through doors with that thing? Or does Immortals take place before the Greek gods invented doors? And don't get us started on Hyperion, whose hoodie makes it look like the costume designers were big Sub-Mariner fans and just said, "Screw it, we're going to make him look like Orka."
We're stoked for what appears to be an absolutely insane action movie from the mind of Tarsem Singh (The Cell), but we have no idea how it's going to look in action. Is it going to be the most ridiculous movie of the year or the most unabashedly bug nuts? Time will tell. In the meantime, check out these new posters of the Immortals!
