New featurette for Wrath of the Titans may sway you in its favor

Mar. 21, 2012by: Paul Shirey

A new featurette for WRATH OF THE TITANS focusing on one of the creatures from the film is pretty damn impressive and may well win you over in actually catching this in theaters.  There seems to be a very positive fanbase that's looking forward to the sequel, but some, like myself, have been on the fence after the less-than-stellar CLASH OF THE TITANS.

However, the recent promos and trailers have left me making that weird frowny face/high eyebrows thing when something seems much better than you anticipated.  I did the same thing after watching this featurette.

Take a look:

I'm pretty impressed with the effects overall and I think a lot of it has to do with director Jonathan Liebesman, who I thought did a slick job on BATTLE: LOS ANGELES (and will soon bring Ninja Turtles from outer space).  The Chimera creature is just a really cool looking and skillfully portrayed beast, unlike the giant scorpions and stupid ass Krakken in CLASH.  WRATH OF THE TITANS has a more down-and-dirty feel to it and I have a feeling it's going to be suprisingly good, leaving us all making that weird "frownybrow" face. 

WRATH OF THE TITANS opens on March 30, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Liam Neeson is setting up for a pretty good year with Wrath, Battleship, The Dark Knight Rises, and Taken 2 coming down the pipe before the world ends. Go, Darkman!

The thing about the chimaera is that they weren't just some random monster-esque heads.

They were specifically the heads of a goat and a lion.

That has been my biggest gripe with some of these kinds of films.

Mainly that rather than looking to nature and the actual mythology for creature creation they look to the styling of comic book imagery.

Because of this a certain sense of realism is lost.

This is looking pretty good so far.
I hope all these Titans get a lot of screen time, I mean, it IS a movie about Titans, right?

I am so ready for this movie! It's going to be so good! I think this has to be the first time ever, I've wanted to see a sequel after thinking the first was bad.

Harryhausen could have designed a more unique looking creature by gluing two pieces of dog poop to a cat's face.
