Movie-trailer: Action-fantasy 'Immortals' with costumes by Eiko Ishioka (release in Nov 2011)
Eiko Ishioka is known for her Oscar winning costume design (1993) for Francis Ford Copploa's 'Dracula', Jennifer Lopez' best dressed MTV Movie awarded (2001) appearance in 'The Cell', or the costumes of the Cirque du Soleil artists in 'Varekai' (premiered in 2002).
The new movie 'Immortals' is about gods from the Ancient Greek mythology, a war, and a human man, the peasant Theseus. As the gods are not allowed to influence directly the war caused by evil King Hyperion (played by Mickey Rourke), god Zeus (starring John Hurt and Luke Evans) has chosen secretly Theseus (Henry Cavill). The movie is directed by Tarsem Singh, who has worked already for two other productions with costume designer Eiko Ishioka, 'The Cell' (2000) and 'The Fall' (2006).
At this time, Tarsem Singh and Eiko Ishioka (born 1939, Tokyo) are collaborating again for the next movie 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White', announced for 2012.
