New Trailer For ‘Immortals': Could Be A Win

Immortals could go one of two ways (as with everything else on Earth). The first: it could be a half-rate 300 that relies too heavily on its action for thrills. The second: it could embrace a creative mythology, build up a classic hero story, and really amplify the focus on that whole three-hits-on-the-shield thing. This trailer seems to lean toward option two. Good old fashioned rallying goes a long way.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
