Wrath of the Titans Comes Out Swinging With First Trailer

In the mad dash before Christmas, the studios are rushing out trailers for their 2012 blockbusters. Tomorrow we’ll get The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, followed on Thursday by Prometheus. And today, which has already seen the second trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, now gets the teaser for Wrath of the Titans.

While last year’s Clash of the Titans has received a lot of scorn — most of it deserved — this trailer actually makes the sequel look promising. Which, y’know, is what a trailer is supposed to do. Still, though …

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.

Watch the trailer below or in HD at Apple.com. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Wrath of the Titans stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramirez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell and Rosamund Pike. It opens March 30.

    While the last film was less than satisfying, this one looks a lot better and something I’d be willing to actually pay to see.  Not exactly hanging out for, but willing to see when it comes around at the theatre.

    I hate to say this about a fellow Aussie, but Sam, Sam, acting is about changing who you are to be accepted in a role.  Ancient Greeks didn’t have Aussie accents and speak in a drawl.  For God’s sake if Geoffrey Rush, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe can change their voices for a role why can’t you???

    Where is Gemma Atherton?

    Ok… Looks… Cool. But I’m in no rush to see it.

    Loved the last one. Lots of action, great fx, kick-butt-edness all around. Wasn’t expecting Othello and it blew away the original (which I loved as a kid, but find laughable as an adult). This looks on-point too. Can’t wait.

    Sam Worthington looks like actor Danny McBride in this trailer. What happened to him? LOL The trailer looks really good though.

    I guess I’m a junkie for Ray Harryhausen because even though the original wasn’t Ray’s best it was still a classic B flick in the best sense of the word and the new Clash was an homage and a very well done one at that.I don’t get Melrose saying it deserved the scorn it got.I was unaware of how the film did initially,but I liked it when I saw it at a friends house recently.I liked the Clockwork Owl that gets tossed back on the pile of discarded weapons and the scorpians in the desert sequence that I believe are from the first Clash.Hopefully,The Helmet of Invisibility and a cloak that wasn’t used in the new Clash will make an appearance in Wrath but if nothing else give me more Pegasus.
