I am sure that most of us are a little uneasy as to whether Jonathan Liebesman’s sequel, Wrath of the Titans, would actually be any good. The first film did not live up to expectations, but is an enjoyable adventure that is easy viewing. The sequel, however, looks very impressive indeed, and it would appear that Monsters is the key factor to impress audiences, they are all over the trailer and looks amazing. A great choice of song for the trailer also adds impact to the breathtaking special effects. I will happily admit to being rather excited!
Pretty much the entire cast are returning, with Sam Worthington back as Perseus, Liam Neeson as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, Danny Huston as Poseidon and Gemma Arterton as Lo. Bill Nighy has been cast as fallen God Hephaestus with Rosamund Pike (as Queen Andromeda), and Toby Kebbell (as Poseidon’s demigod son Agenor) also starring.
Not only has a trailer been revealed, but also a new creature banner showing off some of the monsters we can expect to see. You can see both at the bottom of this post. Wrath of the Titans arrives in UK cinemas 30th March 2012.
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—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 and Poseidon. 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 (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty 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 (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
