‘Clash of the Titans 2′ Set For Spring 2012 Release

Published 4 years ago by , Updated September 18th, 2012 at 7:51 am,

Prepare for the mightiest battle ever between mere mortals and deities… again, as Warner Bros. has selected a release date for its 3D sequel, Wrath of the Titans.

The Clash of the Titans sequel will hit theaters on March 30th, 2012 – this time under the direction of Jonathan Liebesman, whose sci-fi invasion pic Battle: Los Angeles will hit the big screen next spring (and, hopefully, be everything that Skyline was not).

Zeus himself, Liam Neeson, confirmed that he will return for Wrath of the Titans, which will once again feature Sam Worthington as his (human) offpsring, Perseus; Gemma Aerton as the lovely Io; and Ralph Fiennes as the devious Lord of the Underworld, Hades. There have previously been rumblings that James Franco and Javier Bardem could costar as the Phoenician king Agenor and Ares, God of War, respectively, but their involvement with the project is far from being a sure thing.

Wrath of the Titans scriber David Leslie Johnson is known for working on big-budget projects that are heavy on the action and set pieces, while his co-writer, Dan Mazeau, has more experience crafting “dark character pieces.” Whether these complimentary writing talents will be able to deliver a more cohesive and intelligent Clash of the Titans sequel remains to be seen for now.

One thing moviegoers can count on is that Clash of the Titans 2 will feature significantly better 3D visuals than its predecessor, which was originally shot as a 2D pic before being given a now infamously rushed and very sloppy post-production conversion job. The Titans sequel, by comparison, is expected to actually be shot using 3D camera rigs and technology.

The Clash of the Titans remake grossed close to half a billion dollars in theaters – to paraphrase Mark Hamill, ‘Try telling Hollywood they shouldn’t make a sequel to a film with that kind of box office success.’ But do the moviegoing masses really want to see Wrath of the Titans?

  1. I’m actually more interested in a sequel than I originally thought. I love Greek Mythology, and I’m curious as to what they base the story on. At least it still has Neeson as Zues (best casting choice since Keanu Reeves played that moron in Bill and Ted), and it will at least be shot in 3D this time.

    • I agree with you 100%. Mythology is always interesting and honestly after seeing taken, I’m convinced that no other person can be zeus. Liam neeson is god!

  2. Well, I can absolutely promise that I will be giving this a miss. Hated the first one with a passion.

    Sam Worthington has all the charisma and acting talent of a frequently stamped on Dorito.

    And Ralph Fiennes has forgotten how to play any other character other than Voldermort (Sorry Ricky, He Who Must Not Be Named), his performance as Hades was identical.

    • I’ve met Gemma Arterton, she’s lovely.

      • You are really lucky, and you are correct about Ralp Fiennes acting was like Voldermort but I thought it was good for the role at hand.

        • Yeah he reminded me of Voldemort everytime i saw him LMAO!

          • Hades: Avada Kedavara!!!! Damn, wrong movie.

  3. I thought Clash was pretty good. I can watch it again and still be entertained. I think the sequel needs alot of things to work on, but I’ll give it a watch.

    • Engrish prease …

      • COTT–Clash of the Titans

        WOTT–Wrath of the Titans

        Guess, tmas thought this was twitter and only had 140 characters to use.

  4. I think someone had said this its a popcorn flick to expeect more is to be disappointed , the original was nothing more than a popcorn flick and Wrath will more then likely be nothing more than a popcorn flick and what make it fun to watch is that it is a popcorn flick. Sometimes thats all the people need, not every movie has to have real substance, i love the thinking mans movie, and i find they are too few and far between , but i still appreciate a good popcorn flick

    • It wasn’t that I can’t enjoy a good popcorn flic, but the movie’s pacing was all wrong. Add to that I never felt a sense of danger for those in the movie, even the ones that got killed seemed like watching a car go by at the speed limit. Whatever that means. :)

  5. hated the first1 maybe this 1 will be better

  6. The remake of Clash of the Titans was an “entertaining” enough movie I suppose, but I was personally quite disappointed and let down….I thought the original was better. Why? I felt the original had more of a dramatic story-line with attention to character development. I felt like the remake was just a Greek-myth action flick. Nothing against action flicks, but was sorely disappointed.

    I will likely go see Wrath of the Titans, as I too like Greek mythology and would be interested to see what they’d do with the story – but my expectations for quality character development and dramatic storyline are extremely low. This will probably just be another Greek myth action flick.

  7. Did anyone notice that Perseus and Andromeda didn’t have a love story in the remake? Anyway I enjoyed Clash of the Titans and hope that Wrath is even better. What would like to see? More screen time for the gods and their world and I would love to see a Medusa back story. Maybe as the prologue and opening of the movie. In all I know it’s all good popcorn fun, no more no less.
