The only things I can remember is it was probably an ancient Greek fantasy film and has that dust/dirt/rock aesthetic of films like Clash of the Titans, it was probably of the same era as the 2010 remake, and it involved a woman hiding from villains or being trapped by them in a large metal oven like a pig on a spit, risking being cooked alive, and needing to be rescued.

    Probably Hercules 2014? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hercules_(2014_film) The woman is Ergenia, but I am not sure about that specific scene (Ergenia is ordered to be executed and cooking alive in a similar device was especially cruel way to be executed).

1 Answer 1


Could this be Tarsem Singh's 2011 movie "Immortals"?

It has a distinctive and peculiar visual style, the story has Greek gods and titans, and the other details seems to match too.

a woman hiding from villains

She could be Phaedra, a oracle kept prisoner by the villain Hyperion to keep advantage of her visions. Later on she escapes together with Theseus.

being trapped by them in a large metal oven like a pig on a spit

Other women are imprisoned and tortured in a brazen statue representing a bull, placed upon a fire.

    That would be the legendary bronze bull of Phalaris, tyrant of Syracuse.
