IMMORTALS

The Abridged Script

FADE IN:

INT. ELABORATE GREEK ARCHITECTURE ROOM #1

FRIEDA PINTO awakes from a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE VISION.

FRIEDA PINTO

(foreign language)

I just had a dream that Mickey Rourke stole the Maguffin Bow and unleashed the Titans!

ORACLE DECOY FRIEND #1

(foreign language)

Wait. Are we speaking in ancient Greek? You mean a Hollywood film is actually going to try for a bit of accuracy in a film?

HOLLYWOOD EXECUTIVE

Nope. Start talking in English. Americans like English. Tarsem! Remember to make this movie more like 300.

DIRECTOR TARSEM SINGH

Movie? I thought I thought I was doing another music video.

EXT. ELABORATE GREEK VILLAGE ON CLIFFSIDE

HENRY CAVILL talks with JOHN HURT, who looks like a chestburster is about to pop out, probably because he's in this movie.

JOHN HURT

Henry, you must try to be a good warrior... and stuff. I really don't care. This walking stick I'm carrying has more character than you.

HENRY CAVILL

Henry love village. Henry love mother. Henry good boy.

JOHN HURT

Oh well. Let me turn into Zeus so I can lessen my screentime in this movie.

JOHN HURT turns into LUKE EVANS, who is SEXY. He meets up with ISABEL LUCAS, another God, who is also SEXY.

LUKE EVANS

Isabel, we are so sexy.

ISABEL LUCAS

Yes. Such sexy sexiness. Gods don't get much sexier than this.

LUKE EVANS

Come. Let's go be sexy on sexy Mount Sexylympus.

They teleport away. With sexiness.

LATER:

GREEK CAPTAIN

Henry! Mickey Rourke is coming to get us! You should come fight with us!

HENRY CAVILL

Henry go fight Mickey. Mickey bad. Henry good.

GREEK CAPTAIN

On second thought, we'll just go without you. You're kind of a stupid.

MICKEY ROURKE shows up with his army and starts killing the fuck out of everyone. He then captures HENRY'S MOTHER. This makes HENRY angry.

HENRY CAVILL

Henry smash!

HENRY starts killing a lot of MICKEY ROURKE'S soldiers, but HENRY is captured.

HENRY CAVILL

Uh oh. This bad.

MICKEY kills HENRY'S MOTHER.

MICKEY ROURKE

I find your fighting abilities very appealing. I will let you live, but I won't even take you in as a soldier or anything useful really. You're just going to be a slave with a grudge against me. That's totally the best thing to do in any situation like this.

EXT. ELABORATE SEXY MOUNT SEXYLYMPUS

LUKE EVANS talks with the other Gods.

LUKE EVANS

Listen guys. Mickey Rourke is going to go get the Maguffin Bow, but you can't interfere, unless he unleashes the Titans. Doing so will result in death.

KELLAN LUTZ

Wait a minute. Who made these rules? I mean, we're gods. Our job is basically to make sure shit like this doesn't happen. What the fuck else do we do in our spare time?

LUKE EVANS

Well your job in this music vid- I mean movie, is to stand around and look sexy until the third act! Now look sexy!

The sexy Gods sexily look down on the not sexy Earth in sexy poses.

EXT. ELABORATE GREEK DESERT

HENRY CAVILL is being used as a work slave along with STEPHEN DORFF.

STEPHEN DORFF

Hey! I'm the only one in this movie with any resemblance of a personality, AND I have more of an interesting backstory than Henry. This makes me a prime candidate to be the protagonist of the movie in which I debate going and working with Mickey or being a hero! What an interesting character I could be!

HENRY CAVILL

Shut up Stephen! This Henry movie! You Henry lackey!

STEPHEN DORFF

(sad)

...Okay...

THE GUARDS bring in FRIEDA PINTO and her ORACLE DECOY friends. FRIEDA accidentally touches HENRY'S foot and gets a vision.

FRIEDA PINTO

My friends, I just had a vision that this man sitting out here is very important and will save us from Mickey Rourke. We have to escape!

ORACLE DECOY FRIEND #3

You mean you were fine with being captured until you got a contact high from touching this guy?

FRIEDA PINTO

I don't know... there's something... SUPER... about him.

HENRY, STEPHEN, FRIEDA, and FRIGHTENED INMATE #1 and #2 escape from the guards.

EXT. ELABORATE GREEK DOCK

HENRY and the GREEK JUSTICE FRIENDS are attacked by MICKEY ROURKE'S people. FRIGHTENED INMATE #1 is killed!

HENRY CAVILL

Uh oh. Henry no like this.

Meanwhile, sexy KELLAN LUTZ decides to sexily jump off sexy Mount Olympus into the sexy water and create a sexy tidal wave to wash away MICKEY ROURKE'S people.

STEPHEN DORFF

Wow. What a shitty way to help us. We could have died.

KELLAN LUTZ

It's ok. I did exactly what Luke Evans told me NOT to do. Surely I will be punished.

HE ISN'T.

EXT. ELABORATE GREEK VILLAGE ON CLIFFSIDE

HENRY and the GREEK JUSTICE FRIENDS go back to HENRY'S VILLAGE.

HENRY CAVILL

Henry bury mother.

STEPHEN DORFF

What a noble deed. If only you weren't a prick who decided to leave his fellow village people lying dead on the floor to rot as well.

HENRY goes into a tomb to bury his mother. Meanwhile, the screenwriters discover the movie is stalling, so HENRY finds the MAGUFFIN BOW! RIGHT NEXT TO HIS MOTHER'S TOMB!

HENRY CAVILL

Henry like coincidences. Wait. If Maguffin Bow here whole time, why no one use bow on Mickey? War be over in minute. This movie silly.

HENRY gets in a fight with A MINOTAUR! Except it's not a Minotaur. It's a giant guy in a bull suit.

GUY IN BULL SUIT

This is a very impractical way to fight!

DIRECTOR TARSEM SINGH

Shut up! It looks cool.

HENRY cuts off the BULL MAN'S HEAD and drags it back outside to where THE GREEK JUSTICE FRIENDS are being held hostage by MICKEY'S HENCHMEN!

HENRY CAVILL

Henry time!

HENRY kills them all with the bow. He tosses the BULL MAN'S HEAD off the cliff.

BULL MAN'S HEAD

Why did you take my head in the first place?!

INT. ELABORATE GREEK HOUSE

FRIEDA and HENRY sit inside a house.

FRIEDA PINTO

Henry. I had a vision that you united with MICKEY ROURKE and became best pals.

HENRY CAVILL

Henry no do that. Henry hate Mickey.

FRIEDA PINTO

I know. So instead of keeping my powers in such a critical time, I'm going to have sex with you so I don't have to have visions anymore. That's totally responsible.

HENRY CAVILL

Henry make boom boom?

FRIEDA PINTO

Yes. Henry make boom boom.

They have sex while DIRECTOR TARSEM SINGH makes sure there is a giant closeup of FRIEDA'S ASS so the audience doesn't remember about how stupid she is.

EXT. ELABORATE GREEK PIT

THE GREEK JUSTICE FRIENDS go to MICKEY'S BASE, where he is mysteriously gone! Suddenly, they are attacked by MICKEY'S HENCHMEN, who kill FRIGHTENED INMATE #2!

STEPHEN DORFF

Quick Henry! Use the bow to kill them all!

HENRY CAVILL

Oh look! Doggie! Catch the bow doggie!

HENRY tosses the MAGUFFIN BOW at the DOG who runs away with it.

STEPHEN DORFF

Are you really the fucking hero of this shit?

SUDDENLY, DEUS EX SEXY happens! DANIEL SHURMAN zaps down and brutally murders all the henchmen!

STEPHEN DORFF

Wow. The coolest scene in the movie. I guess we can leave now.

LUKE EVANS appears.

LUKE EVANS

Bad Daniel! You were supposed to stay sexy on Mount Sexylympus! You die now! And it won't be sexy!

LUKE kills DANIEL.

LUKE EVANS

Henry. It is all up to you. You must defeat Mickey before it is too late!

HENRY CAVILL

Henry have big toe.

LUKE EVANS

I believe in you.

EXT. ELABORATE GREEK CITY

HENRY, STEPHEN, and FRIEDA go to the GREEK CITY where the TITANS are imprisoned. They are greeted by STEPHEN MCHATTIE.

HENRY CAVILL

Stephen! You must no let Mickey in. He unleash Titans! That bad.

STEPHEN MCHATTIE

My casting in this role and the assembly of soldiers here would suggest that I would agree to help try to fight Mickey Rourke, but due to some lack of logic, I'm going to try and make a peace with him.

MICKEY ROURKE assembles his army outside the city.

MICKEY ROURKE

Ok gentlemen. It appears our battle today is a Helms Deep rip off. So if I remember that movie correctly, we just go through the front gate by exploding it.

MICKEY shoots the MAGUFFIN BOW at the NOT HELMS DEEP gate which explodes and the army charges. HENRY gets up on top of an overhang.

STEPHEN DORFF

Please tell me dorkus isn't about to make a very bad inspirational speech.

HENRY CAVILL

Henry bring you here today. Henry want you fight. Henry no like Mickey army. You don't like Mickey army either. We fight for freedom. Today our independence day. Henry love smell of napalm in morning. Henry go and fight.

RANDOM SOLDIER

I'm sorry, did anyone hear what the fuck he just said? He kind of just grumbled through that speech to a big army without a microphone.

HENRY and the GREEK UNIVERSE fight MICKEY'S ARMY. MICKEY sneaks by easily into the upstairs room to access the Titans, and HENRY and STEPHEN manage to do THE SAME THING.

STEPHEN DORFF

I love main character invisibility armor.

MICKEY kills STEPHEN MCHATTIE, and comes upon the BOX containing the TITANS.

MICKEY ROURKE

Ok. There are sixteen of you. And you're all human sized. How they call you Titans in this movie, I have no clue.

MICKEY unleashes the TITANS just as HENRY and STEPHEN make it to MICKEY. STEPHEN launches himself after the MAGUFFIN BOW to fight off the TITANS.

STEPHEN DORFF

Wow. What a noble act. Surely my history as a thief will let me use this moment as an act of redemption as I singlehandedly kill all the titans while dying nobly!

STEPHEN is brutally murdered by ALL of the TITANS. The GODS show up just in time in sexy battle gear.

LUKE EVANS

Did someone call for a climax?

HENRY CAVILL

Henry go fight Mickey now.

HENRY goes and fights MICKEY, while the GODS fight the TITANS. The GODS fight and kill many TITANS but they keep coming.

LUKE EVANS

(sexily fighting)

You know I swear there were only sixteen Titans in that box. Do they fucking multiply?

HENRY and MICKEY fight while epic music is playing suggesting there is some drama to this fight.

MICKEY ROURKE

Wow. This fight is being hyped up a lot, as if that vision FRIEDA had of you joining with me is going to become true. What a way to make your dull character interesting and have this movie actually go somewhere!

HENRY kills MICKEY.

MICKEY ROURKE

Eh, my dead body will still be a better character than you.

With many GODS dying (because to have Gods be immortal in a movie called IMMORTALS is silly), LUKE EVANS decides to bring down the entire temple.

ISABEL LUCAS

Why didn't you think of this before?

LUKE EVANS

Because fighting is sexy!

THE TEMPLE falls and kills the TITANS and MICKEY'S ARMY outside. LUKE EVANS takes HENRY CAVILL with him to MOUNT SEXYLYMPUS. FRIEDA gives birth to HENRY'S SON, who starts hanging out with JOHN HURT.

JOHN HURT

(narrating)

You mean I have to come back for more screentime? God damn it. Ok. So Henry had a kid with Frieda and became a sexy god with the rest of the sexy Gods and fought the Titans with them. Blah blah blah.

HENRY CAVILL

Good god. Now I can finally stop acting like such a dunce. What's next for me?

HENRY'S AGENT

Well I think it's SUPER. You know how this movie had a lot of slow motion scenes? Well you're going to LOVE the next movie.
