Opening: Critics Don't See a Long Life for The Immortals

Opening November 11th:

The Immortals
Fresh Rating: 38%
Synopsis: The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging 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 the death of his mother in one of Hyperion's 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.
Rotten Tomatoes Consensus Opinion: The melding of real sets, CG work, and Tarsem's signature style produces fireworks, though the same can't be said for Immortals slack, boring storytelling.

Fresh Rating: 20%
Synopsis: Director Darren Lynn Bousman explores the so-called "11:11" phenomenon with this enigmatic thriller concerning a best-selling author who stumbles upon a life-changing secret. His wife and young son taken from him in a tragic accident, Joseph begins attending therapy sessions as his estranged father, Richard, a small-town priest, wrestles with a terminal illness. Upon returning home to bid his father farewell, Joseph also reconnects with his wheelchair-bound brother, Samuel, also a man of the cloth. Now, the longer Joseph remains in town, the more frequently the numbers "11:11" begin appearing to him in a vivid series of hallucinations and nightmares. Meanwhile, the congregation of a nearby church begins to experience an onslaught of inexplicable supernatural events. As November of 2011 draws near, it becomes obvious to Joseph that something truly profound is set to occur. But what incredible cosmic secrets will that mysterious date reveal?
