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.

First up is the severe leather and animal hide costume worn by one of King Hyperion's Heraclean army, 'Mondragon', played by Matthew G. Taylor in the movie.

Next up is an even more spectacular costume and mask from Tarsem Singh's epic fantasy, the re-imagined 'Minotaur' of legend.
Actual Minotaur costume worn by Robert Maillet in Immortals
Robert Maillet plays the unstoppable Minotaur, referred to as 'The Beast' in Immortals, and the towering seven foot tall Canadian actor can be seen in full costume in brutal battle against Theseus in the movie.
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.
