iTunes Movie Trailers recently released this awesome trailer giving us a peek into The Wrath of the Titans as well as a couple of promotional posters from the film.
This film is going to be the sequel to the film, Clash of The Titans that was released 2010. The film stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, and Liam Neeson.
It was also announced that Warner Bros. hired Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Wrath of the Titans with Steven Knight, to write and develop a third film installment. They must be feeling that Wrath of the Titans is going to do well commercially as did the first film.
The official description for the movie is as follows:
A decade after his historic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—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’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty 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.
I’m unsure as to how much of this sequel will correlate with historical mythology. The previous film was based loosely on traditional mythology, so I’m assuming that the writers are going to put a creative twist on the this film as well. Either way, I’m sure no matter what they do with it, it’ll be amazing.
The movie is set to release on March 30, 2012 and will also be playing in IMAX theaters. The promo art for this movie looks fantastic! Take a look.
