Despite arriving in theaters in just over a month, there seems to be a general lack of buzz regarding the sequel to Clash of the Titans. I can’t muster up much excitement myself for the film directed by Battle: Los Angeles helmer Jonathan Liebesman. Following a trailer last fall, we’ve got the second one today which opts for a quicker pace, packed with more action. Some of the fire villains have an interesting design, but there is no Kraken this time around. There is much room for improvement from the last one, but it just doesn’t look that different. The film brings back Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, and Danny Huston, with Édgar Ramirez, Rosamund Pike. Bill Nighy, and Toby Kebbell joining. Check it out below via Apple.
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington) –the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)–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 (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). 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 Ramirez), switch loyalties 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 opens on March 30th.
