Avast! Trailer For Wrath Of The Titans.

Yes the first film Clash Of The Titans, a remake of the 1981 original, was a chaotic messy, boring, loud, vapid affair which makes it almost impossible to get even remotely excited about a sequel.

Judging from the trailer Perseus now lives in a tangerine coloured world and has a lot more CGI creatures and deities to deal with, but ultimately this looks almost like a God Of War movie, which is a great shame as a film based on the successful game franchise, featuring the ash white Kratos and his double chained blades, would have been interesting, so you can thank The Wrath for pissing all over that dream.

The plot rattles around like so:

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus 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’s godly son, Ares (Édgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’s 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, Agenor (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.

When the hell did the music of Marilyn Manson become the staple soundtrack for greek mythology movies? The Wrath Of The Titans is released nationwide sometime in March 2012.
