Sure, you love the Immortals movie. All those Greek gods, goddesses, demi-gods and heroes. And don’t even get us started on the titans! Clashing like all bejeezus!

But you know what sucks about the Immortals movie? You can’t carry it around. Hankering for a Greek myth snack in the middle of the day? Too bad! Immortals is trapped in a movie theater so you’ll just have to go without. Right?

Not any more!

Backlot D has the cure for your legendary cravings with the amazingly gorgeous Immortals graphic novel from Archaia. And you don’t even need to wear funny glasses for the 3D experience because you can hold it in your own hands! In the REAL world!

This book features 112 pages of comic book stories focusing on the key characters from the movie, written and illustrated by some today’s brightest talents: folks like Jock,  (Detective Comics, The Losers), Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo), Dennis Calero (X-Men Noir), Ben McCool (Captain America, Memoir), Phil Hester (Wonder Woman, Green Arrow), Scott Hampton (Batman), Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray (Jonah Hex), Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Choker), and MANY more.

Ken Pasini - 11/18/2011

Visually, the movie was stunning. The 3D was very natural, not distracting like many 3D offerings. The story was exciting, but linear. The battle between the Gods and the Titans was spectacular, as was the finale between Thesis and Hyperion. The story could have benefited from some tighter writing and incorporated plot triggers (such as the bow only able to be wielded by the one who found it). Overall, excellent choreography, masterful use of motion (slow and fast motion used to great effect), and cinematography. Score of 7 out of 10.

Tess Craft - 11/18/2011

Much like Tarsem Singh’s other work, the film was hauntingly beautiful, particularly in its art direction. The fight choreography was brilliant and the action riveting, as were the performances of Henry Cavill and Mickey Rourke. There were some issues with pacing during exposition, but the action sequences were a reward to the patient audience. Overall, it falls short of the total package 300 offered, but certainly beat the pants off of the remake of Clash of the Titans… But, the best thing about The Immortals? Backlot D made it possible for me to see it early!
