The comparisons to 300 will be inevitable, so let’s just get them out of the way. Yes, the teaser for Immortals makes it look an awful lot like 300 (and the “From the Producers of 300” bit only amplifies it), but it looks like a far more visually dynamic version. Snyder’s movie looked amazing, but Singh has a more varied palette and a bigger paint brush, so everything here seems a bit more vibrant instead of automatically being washed out in sepia tones and blood reds.

Those are definitely still there, though.

This teaser is intense, and it showcases Singh’s best strengths as a filmmaker: his eye for production design.

Check it out for yourself and get your blood flowing:

Hell, yes. That’s how it’s done. I’m so glad I waited until the official teaser hit because the bootleg apparently didn’t look nearly as crisp. The metal Venus Flytrap on Mickey Rourke‘s head really pops.

My one concern is that a story like this doesn’t lend itself easily to the kind of sweetness and nostalgia that Singh showed in The Fall. Hopefully it doesn’t get in its own way by failing to build characters. Hopefully it can deliver both the action and the depth.

Would you go see it?
