Lost in Previews: Wrath of the Titans

Wrath of the Titans is the sequel to the updated Clash of the Titans that came out a couple years ago.  Clash of the Titans was my first time seeing a film in 3D.  It was converted in post-production to 3D and it was horrible.  I will never see a film that was not shot in 3D if I can help it.  Was this one shot in 3D?  I don’t know, but the trailer certainly was made to be seen in 3D.  The first film was not that bad in my opinion, but the 3D ruined it.  I don’t think it did well with the critics, but I guess it made enough cash that a sequel was worth it.

Wrath of the Titans seems to be unleashing all kinds of weird creatures that want revenge.  Since Gemma Arterton was killed off in the first film, Rosamund Pike and her blonde hair (which looks really out of place) is in place for the love interest in this one.  The film also starsSam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramiez, Bill Nighy, and Toby Kebbell.  I’ll see it, just not in 3D (like I have not made that clear enough already).

“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 is in theatres March 30, 2012.

The trailer is officially posted on Apple iTunes Trailers.
