Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell) and the producers of 300 unleash an epic tale of a power-mad king who razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, while a heroic villager rises up against him.
Bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus - a weapon powerful enough to overthrow the Gods of Olympus. As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill, soon to play the caped one in the rebooted Superman) vows to avenge the death of his mum who perished in one of Hyperion's raids. Phaedra (Freida Pinto) has visions of Theseus' future and becomes convinced that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and takes on the King.
