Wrath of the Titans

I was extremely excited for Louis Leterrier’s remake of Clash of the Titans when previews started making their way online over two years ago. But, when the film finally hit theaters, I found it to be somewhat underwhelming. It was okay, but it lacked a certain spark that could have made it something special. That, and the fight with the Kraken was way too short. However, the film made more than enough money to warrant a sequel, titled Wrath of the Titans, which hits theaters March 30th.

The film brings back Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes as Zeus and Hades, respectively, and Sam Worthington returns as the demigod Perseus. Admittedly, the trailer makes the film look incredible, featuring over-the-top action scenes filled with mythological monsters running amok. But trailers for the first film made it look incredible as well, and we all know how that turned out. Thankfully, the sequel is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, who directed Battle: Los Angeles (a movie I am quite fond of), so maybe it has a chance to achieve that spark I’m looking for. Hit the jump to check out the trailer!

Official Synopsis:

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.

In case you missed it, here’s the first trailer for the film:

Wrath of the Titans, directed by Jonathan Liebesman, stars Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Sam Worthington, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell and Danny Huston. Once again, the movie hits theaters March 30th.
