Epic Greek Costumes Coming to a Theater Near You

November 11, 2011

A 3D fantasy adventure film from the directors of 300 is releasing to theaters today, 11-11-11, under the title Immortals. It is loosely based on the Greek myths of Theseus and the Minotaur and the Titanomachy. Theseus (Henry Cavill of Superman: Man of Steel), is a mortal man chosen by Zeus to lead the fight against his ruthless nemesis King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke), who is on a rampage across ancient Greece to obtain a weapon that can destroy humanity.

The costume epics and the CGI are being talked about in the reviews and by critics. Brian Gallagher of reports as being really taken by the Greek costumes and commented that they were ‘just amazing.” In his interview with Isabel Lucas who portrays Athena the Goddess of War, she describes her character’s outfits as unbelievable, beautiful, gruesome and so creative. Although she stated it was very physically impractical to wear (with the corsets and chain-link skirt weighing nearly 44 pounds), the costume encouraged her to embody her character while feeling very regal on the movie set.

Freida Pinto, who stars as the Oracle priestess Phaedra, agreed that she also got to wear some beautiful costumes. One of her Greek style costumes in Tarsem Singh’s Greek epic fantasy Immortals included a tight corset. “As beautiful as the costume was, it was a challenge learning to deal with it,” she shared during an interview. TheHollywood, Bollywood personality admitted that it was a challenge breathing in it.

Recent films telling the tales of Ancient Greece mythology hasn’t disappointed the critics with their beautifully designed costumes. 300, Clash of the Titans,Troyand Gladiator are other examples of ancientGreecemythology movies that feature epic Greek costume designs. Gerard Butler as King Leonidas in his Spartan Warrior costume and Lena Headey portraying Queen Gorgo in her sexy white toga remain among the favorites.
