Watch the new Wrath of the Titans TV Spots

Two new television spots for the upcoming film, Wrath of the Titans have been released. The film, which is a sequel to the remake Clash of the Titans, is going to pick up nearly a decade after the events of the first film. This sequel project began as early as March 2010. 

When COTT was released, it was thought that if it did well in the box office, that a sequel would be made. Later in June 2010, Warner Bros. hired scribes David Leslie Johnson and Dan Mazeau to pen the screenplay with Basil Iwanyk returning as producer and rather than being converted to 3D, the sequel will be shot in 3D.

Now with the premiere of the sequel about two months away, the studio has released two television spots for the film.

Here is the official synopsis for the sequel:

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Sam Worthington) 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 led by Kronos: father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus (Liam Neeson), Hades (Ralph 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 and Ares (Édgar Ramírez) 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.

The cast for the sequel is as follows:

  • Sam Worthington as Perseus, the demigod son of Zeus.
  • Ralph Fiennes as Hades, god of the underworld.
  • Liam Neeson as Zeus, the king of the gods and ruler of Mount Olympus.
  • Danny Huston as Poseidon, god of the sea.
  • Édgar Ramírez as Ares, the traitorous god of war.
  • Bill Nighy as Hephaestus, the fallen god whose twisted, lame figure belies his Olympian origins.
  • Toby Kebbell as Agenor, imprisoned thief and son of Poseidon who joins Perseus on his journey to Tartarus.
  • Rosamund Pike as Andromeda, the princess whose life Perseus once saved, and who now, as a queen, follows Perseus into battle.

In November 2011, Warner Bros. hired Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Wrath of the Titans, to develop and write a treatment for a third installment.

Personally, I was super pissed that the remake was so different from not only the original (which always has a place in my heart) but also the Greek myth as well. I am less hopeful for the sequel but might watch it for the special effects and the acting.

Wrath of the Titans hits theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on March 30th.
