TheThrussellProject has reached the end of its feature on the biggest releases this March. Project X, John Carter, 21 Jump Street and The Hunger Games have all been previewed. So last up in March but by no means least is Wrath of the Titans sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Clash of the Titans.
Synopsis: A decade after the first flm, Perseus is trying to live a quieter life with his 10 year old son Helius. 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. 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.
Clash of the Titans was by no means a brilliant film, however it did rake in a considerable sum of cash (nearly $500 million USD worldwide) this it seems persuaded Warner Bros to sanction another outing. Jonathan Liebesman (Battle Los Angeles and Darkness Falls) is the director this time round and he will be hoping the star power of Liam Neeson, Sam Worthington and Ralph Fiennes will pull this one through again.
After Clash was converted into 3D during post-production to much bemusement this one was actually shot in 3D so should look better, however there is no return for Gemma Arteton who could not rejoin the cast due to scheduling conflicts.
The trailer below certainly looks like the film holds some epic action as you would expect, we will have to wait and see if it can top its predecessor.
Wrath of the Titans is released in the UK and USA on March 30th 2012 and the 29th in Australia.
