have what it takes to be a Greek God or Goddess? If so, then Relativity
Media – the studio behind the visually spectacular 3D action adventure Immortals – wants you to sign up right away! Exclusively offered via Facebook today, the Relativity-Archaia Immortals promotion
sponsored by Fandango, the nation’s leading moviegoer destination, will
crown the winners on July 1 with a king’s ransom-worth of prizes,
including a grand prize where contest winners will be immortalized as
graphic novel characters with the “reveal” taking place at the Archaia
panel during Comic-Con in a special photo-op ceremony. Winners will also
receive an all-expenses-paid trip to San Diego to attend the 2011
Comic-Con International. The package includes airfare, hotel
accommodations, and exclusive access to special Immortals events throughout the convention.
Entrants will share their reasons why they are the perfect candidate to
become the Greek God (Apollo) or Goddess (Artemis) via the Facebook
application form. The top-10 entries (five women and five men) with the
most “Likes” at the end of the contest period will be asked to submit
“authentic” audition tapes for the roles to Relativity Media. The film’s
celebrated Director Tarsem Singh will select his two favorites (one
man, one woman) and they will be crowned the winners.
Relativity Media and graphic novel publisher Archaia Entertainment, LLC
formed a publishing partnership to produce and publish a hardcover
graphic novel anthology based upon Relativity’s upcoming epic motion
picture Immortals, which stars Henry Cavill (Superman: Man of Steel), Luke Evans (Robin Hood), Kellan Lutz (Twillight), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), and Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2).
Archaia will release the Immortals: Gods and Heroes graphic novel
in September, serving as a prelude to the 3D motion picture, which
releases worldwide on November 11, 2011. The graphic novel will expand
upon the film’s key characters and events through a series of original
tales written and illustrated by some of the top names in comics,
including David Mack (Kabuki), Ron Marz (Witchblade), Dennis Calero (Dark Tower) and Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night).
The graphic novel will be published through Archaia’s Black Label
division, a publishing pipeline dedicated to working alongside creative
professionals within the entertainment industry eager to launch and
expand their brands in the publishing world.
Directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and written by Charles Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides, Immortals alsostars Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies) and John Hurt (Hellboy).
The 3D epic is produced by Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300), and Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter), and
will be distributed by Relativity Media worldwide. In the UK,
Australia, and certain other territories, distribution is in association
with Universal Pictures International. In Immortals,
the ruthless King Hyperion (Rourke) leads his bloodthirsty army on a
murderous rampage across Greece to find a deadly weapon that will
destroy humanity. A mortal chosen by Zeus named Theseus (Cavill) must
lead the fight against Hyperion and his evil army with the fate of
mankind and the Gods at stake.
