Yet another mythological monster-oriented featurette for the upcoming Wrath of the Titans has made its way online, following the Chimera-focused clip unveiled earlier this week. This time, the focus is on the demon warriors known as Makhai (also spelled Machai) – or, as co-screenwriter David Leslie Johnson calls them, “nightmare soldiers.” We also have two new clips to show from the Clash of the Titans sequel.

Most of the main players in Clash (such as Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, etc.) are back for a second round of Greek fantasy mayhem in Wrath – though, there’s been significant change-ups in off-camera personnel, including a different director in Jonathan Liebesman (Battle Los Angeles), as well as writers like Johnson (Orphan, Red Riding Hood) and relative newcomer Dan Mazeau.

In this first clip from Wrath of the Titans, Zeus (Neeson) attempts to make peace with his corrupt brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes) so that they might together repair the decaying realm of Tartarus, deep within the Underworld (spoiler: the meeting doesn’t go well):

Next, we have a scene where a battered, dying Poseidon (Danny Huston) gives Perseus (Worthington) his trusty trident, so that Perseus may pass it on to the god of sea’s demi-god son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell) – and gain an ally in his quest to stop the Titans from unleashing Hell on Earth:

Lastly, for all those out there who’ve been wondering just what are these (literally) fiery, double-torsoed monsters that stab everything in sight – as seen in previous Wrath of the Titans trailers – you should watch the featurette below (per usual, Greek mythology purists might want to take a pass):

Overall (early) impression? Based on this preliminary footage, Wrath of the Titans comes off as a solid, effect-heavy popcorn flick that benefits from having a more down n’ dirty aesthetic than its predecessor. While the film does feature post-converted 3D visuals, Liebesman reportedly altered its aspect ratios and the “choreography of the shots” with the third dimension in mind. So far, that seems to have resulted in a movie that should look decent in 3D – or, at the least, much better than Clash of the Titans did.

Wrath of the Titans opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters around the U.S. on March 30th, 2012.

  1. Always looking forward to a solid popcorn flick.

  2. Loved the Creature Feature ;)

  3. im really looking foward to this movie. im going to see it in imax to wet my imax whistle in preps for avengers. but i liked clash, just didnt love it. but this one looks really good. hopefully a bit more rooted in its story and the mythologies than clash was.

  4. Ah, so that’s what the conjoined creatures are. /sigh

    If it weren’t for the fact that the Makhai were all specific named spirits with unique abilities, those things might be ok. I would think using the original myth as is would have been better considering the terrifying things you could come up with to display their powers (but of course they wouldn’t then just be generic creatures born from Hades you could make 20 carbon copies of :P )

  5. why wont the videos load in pause. it has to play itself. this is so weird.

  6. For a warrior queen, Andromeda doesn’t look to be wearing much armor, or even a helmet.

  7. Once again, Hollywood gets their mythology wrong. How many times does Hades have to be depicted as the villain? He IS NOT A VILLAIN. He’s just the god of the underworld, which, according to Greek mythology, is not hell, just the realm of the dead. The only part of Hades that is actually considered a hell-type realm is Tartarus, where the wors sinners are punished. Everyone else just kind of hangs around.
    They need to stop feeding us these sorry excuses for mythological movies. The original Clash of the Titans will always be the best. The true villain is Calibos (or the Kraken-like sea monster if you read the real Perseus myth). Calibos was made for the movie, but the writer had enough knowledge of Greek mythology to not make Hades the villain.

    • Welcome to Hollywood where association with death automatically brands you as the bad one. They do the same thing with Egyptian mythology and demonize Anubis simply because he has the head of a jackal (a sinister quality) and deals with the dead (although he is not the god of the dead). Why Osiris is never labeled as evil or the real bad apple of the pantheon, Set, I will never understand.

  8. Can’t wait

  9. And who was the blonde chick in the trailer? Andromeda? She wasn’t a warrior. Sorry, Hollywood. You lose again. Try Hippolyta or

    • Artemis for a warrior. Sorry, so incensed about this mess of a movie, that I hit enter by mistake!
