It appears that the forces behind the highly anticipated flick Immortals were worried that people might not be following the whole Greek-mythology story arc Henry Cavill and the gang are embroiled in.

Titans? Gods? Humans caught in the middle? It can be a lot to juggle. Fortunately, a new trailer is here and it's explaining the whole situation. And it just happens to also show off Cavill's ripped physique...

See, makes total sense now, doesn't it? King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) is pissed and is looking to use the Titans to wage war on the gods and the world of humans over which they reign.

The only hope to stop him? A human named Theseus (Cavill) who, as we said, is apparently totally fine foregoing any garment designed to cover his torso.

And just in case the history lesson wasn't enough, we get plenty of closer looks at the battles and the action sequences we can expect from this visually stunning film.

Immortals takes siege of theaters Nov. 11. What do you think, ready to go into battle with these guys?
