Well it looks like the 2010 reboot CLASH OF THE TITANS directed by Louis Leterrier (THE TRANSPORTER) is getting a sequel despite audiences poor reception. Apparently the film made a crap ton of money over seas giving the franchise another shot to win us over. This trailer premiered a few weeks ago but got overlooked due to the awesomeness of high profile movie trailers for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, and G.I. JOE: RETALIATION among others. I think this one looks cool enough to take a look.
The sequel will be titled WRATH OF THE TITANS and will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman (BATTLE LOS ANGELES). The film once again stars Sam Worthington (AVATAR) as the half god Perseus, Liam Neeson (TAKEN) as the all powerful Zeus, and Ralph Fiennes (HARRY POTTER Series) as the villainous Hades. I though the first film was a bit of a guilty pleasure and I am willing to give the franchise another chance with this one. Check out the long ass plot synopsis and trailer below:
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius.
Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.
Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth.
Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
WRATH OF THE TITANS gets unleashed in theaters March 30th 2012.
