Wrath of the Titans unleashes some new images

01.23.2012

A healthy "wrath" of images have appeared online from Empire's latest issue, featuring some pretty cool action and character shots from WRATH OF THE TITANS. It's the first time we've seen some of these characters outside of the new trailer and man, what's better than Rosamund Pike kicking some ass?

Check out the images below:

I really loathed CLASH OF THE TITANS, even though I find myself catching it on HBO hoping it'll grow on me. It never really does, though. However, WRATH OF THE TITANS looks promising and as I've said before, they don't have the burden of living up to an original film, so there's a lot more freedom to explore. Let's hope they take advantage of it.

Here's a long-winded synopsis for ya:

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 (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 (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 (Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

Aaaaaand, breathe. WRATH OF THE TITANS hopefully does everything it can to NOT be like CLASH OF THE TITANS on March 30th, 2012.

Loved the first (even though it could have been better). The second one looks very promising and I think will be easily better than the first.

Hell the original with Harry Hamlin and stop-motion creatures surpasses the original. The bar was set ridiculously low by the remake.

You know that talent has nothing to do with what kind of "lister" you are. Edgar Ramirez is very talented, but he's not an A-lister, he's pretty much an unknown for most people.

The only thing I heard from others about the first part is that the 3d-conversion was super-shit.
