Rosamund Pike will become the sacrifice for a sea monster in Clash of the Titans 2

02.08.2011

I guess we won't be seeing Rosamund Pike as Ursa in the new Superman film. Looks like the lovely blonde has taken the role of Andromeda in CLASH OF THE TITANS 2.

Well, maybe the second will be better than than the first? Jonathan Liebesman (BATTLE: LOST ANGELES) is stepping in for Louis Leterrier to tackle directing duties. I really hope he comes through. CLASH was a big letdown in my opinion. I spent my time thinking, "This is going to be awesome!" and it wasn't awesome.

It was thought at one time that Pike would end up with the role of Emma Frost in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, but instead January Jones got the part.

In Greek mythology, Andromeda was the daughter of Cepheus and Cassiopeia, king and queen of the kingdom Ethiopia. In Leterrier's film, Cassiopeia was played by two different actresses, Polly Walker played the younger version and Katherine Loeppky was the elder.

Here's the mythology behind Andromeda: "Her mother Cassiopeia boasted that she was more beautiful than the Nereids, the nymph-daughters of the sea god Nereus and often seen accompanying Poseidon. To punish the Queen for her arrogance, Poseidon, brother to Zeus and god of the sea, sent a sea monster (Cetus) to ravage the coast of Ethiopia including the kingdom of the vain Queen. The desperate King consulted the Oracle of Apollo, who announced that no respite would be found until the king sacrificed his virgin daughter Andromeda to the monster. She was chained naked to a rock on the coast."

"Perseus was returning from having slain the Gorgon Medusa, he found Andromeda and slew Cetus by aproaching invisable with Hades's helm and slaying him. He set her free, and married her in spite of Andromeda having been previously promised to her uncle Phineus. At the wedding a quarrel took place between the rivals, and Phineus was turned to stone by the sight of the Gorgon's head."

"invisable" [sic]

It's like 'invisible', but with a very visible 'a'.

Rosamund Pike really should be in more films and fewer clothes. I'm sexist like that.

My #1 choice for Emma Frost was Alice Eve. I'm fine with January Jones, though. And I also have hopes that Clash 2 will be a lot better than last year's movie. Rosamund Pike is gorgeous, and needs to be in tons more high profile movies.

How are they getting good actors for this sequel, did anyone see the first one? I can't think of a worse movie to get a sequel. Well, I can for chick flicks and horror films, but not action-adventure. And yes, I'm pretty sure she would have made a better Emma than Jones.

What they need to do is forsake that annoying pg 13 rating and go for a style closer to sparticus blood and sand minus the weiners. Make it that good and a bet this movie will make a shit load more money. Oh and pike would have made a good emma frost. Hopefully she is not a cold fish in this one.

I liked Clash of the Titans for what it was. It should have been better, but I think the studio just got too much in the way.

This sequel sounds alot more promising than the first and I think it will be better. Also, the whole cast from the first is coming back, so it has that going for it.

She would be really good for a "hot or not?" article, because I cannot decide. Still, I like her in what I have seen her in, and it's supposed to be about acting talent, right? Certainly for a movie of this caliber it is....

Yeah I really don't see how there's any doubts about Rosamund Pike being hot.

Why?

She would have been great as Emma Frost and it would have been nice to see her in some superspandex. still might be the best excuse to chant toga since belushi wore one.
