Want to be a Greek God or Goddess? As part of the release of Immortals, Relativity Media is offering the ultimate fan a chance to win a King's court worth of prizes, including the grand prize where contest winners will be "immortalized" as graphic novel characters. Winners will be announced on July 1, 2011. The reveal will take place at the Archaia panel during ComicCon in San Diego.
Winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to San Diego to attend ComicCon 2011, including airfare, hotel accomodations, and exclusive access to special Immortals events throughout the convention.
To enter, applicants need to share their reasons why they would be the perfect Greek God (Apollo) or Goddess (Artemis) via Facebook Immortals page. The top 10 entries (five men and five women) with the most likes at the end of the contest period (June 3) will be asked to submit audition tapes for the roles and Immortals director Tarsem Singh will choose his two favorites.
Immortals stars Mickey Rourke, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, and Freida Pinto.
Immortals follows the ruthless King Hyperion as he leads a bloodthirsty army on a murderous rampage across Greece to find a weapon that will destroy all of humanity. A mortal chosen by Zeus, Theseus (Cavill) must lead the fight to destroy Hyperion and his evil army for mankind and the gods at stake.
It is set to hit theaters on November 11, 2011.
