Caption This, Win Tickets to the L.A. Premiere of Immortals


Tarsem fans and Greek mythology nerds, get your thinking caps out; Movieline's got four (4) pairs of VIP tickets to give away to send you and a guest to the Los Angeles premiere of Immortals, and the tix will go to the commenters who submit the best captions to accompany any of the below fantastical stills (or the one above) from the Henry Cavill-starring action pic. Ready, set, caption away! Details after the jump. [UPDATE: Contest is now closed to new submissions.]

The Tarsem-directed epic actioner follows Theseus (Cavill) on a quest to battle the evil King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke), who's hell bent on releasing the imprisoned Titans to end the rule of Zeus (Luke Evans) and co. Along for the ride: The goddess Athena (Isabel Lucas), the god Poseidon (Kellan Lutz), and the priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto).

You've got 24 hours to caption any of the below photos (or the ab-tastic one above) in the comments below, to enter to win tickets to the Immortals premiere, held Monday, November 7th, at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live (777 Chick Hearn Court, Los Angeles, Ca 90015), at 7:30 pm. Ticket holders must be in seats by 6:45 pm to guarantee seating.

And since Immortals is rated R for "sequences of strong bloody violence, and a scene of sexuality," only those 18 and over can win. Under 18? You can still submit your caption for bragging rights, of course!



The official synopsis:

Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) transports us in this epic tale of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and visually spectacular 3D action adventure. As a power-hungry king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful.

The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army rampage across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king's mission.

As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge his mother, who was killed in one of Hyperion's brutal raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man's future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final, desperate battle for the future of humanity. Immortals is produced by Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter).

    Picture 2:
    And as he looked down at the crowd, his chest swelled. He proved them wrong - a homemade Venus flytrap costume could win the town's Halloween costume contest. Victory.

    You know, as much as I want to go to the Immortals premiere, I had the 11 11 11 stuck in my head and was thinking this would be awesome to win! I'm off and it would give me enough time to figure out how I'd get to LA, find a place to stay, go to the Immortals premiere, maybe enjoy a few days of warm weather, and possibly check out LA. Alas it's on 11 7 11 instead... DUH guess even reading the article the 11 11 11 over rode what I read & I didn't notice that until now. I doubt I could get off work and find some way to get there and a place to stay. But would probably be amazing if I could just get the 7th off and that would be a long, expensive way to go for one enjoyable night that to an actual premiere and I might never ever have the opportunity to do something like that ever again. But please let me know if you liked my captions anyway... 🙁 Good Luck everyone!

  • Jen Yamato says:

    Glad you kept trying! Thanks for playing anyway -- winner must make their way to LA on their own on the 7th. We could try helping you get out of work too, but no guarantees. 🙂
