Minotaur and Mondragon costumes from Immortals on display...

In Immortals, a mortal hero 'Theseus' (Henry Cavill) is chosen by the Greek gods to fight for humanity against 'King Hyperion' (Mickey Rourke) and his hordes, plus legendary mythological creatures like the minotaur.

Next up is an even more spectacular costume and mask from Tarsem Singh's epic fantasy, the re-imagined 'Minotaur' of legend.

The Minotaur's mask is pretty amazing, as it's actually a mask within a barbed wiremask which is a great idea, although you can imagine it can't be comfortable to wear, move or even fight in. In the movie the barbed mask is coated with poison to inflict maximum damage to enemies.

If you like these fantastical creations, be sure to check out the costumes worn by Theseus and Zeus in Immortals too.

I don't know about you, but these original Immortals costumes are getting me pretty excited for the movie out on November 11, 2011.
