The word on director Jonathan Liebesman’s Wrath of the Titans 3D is that it will be bigger, better and far more impressive than the first film. That remains to be seen, although the trailer which was released a few months back certainly gives the impression of a more epic film ahead. Wrath of the Titans will be the second film in a proposed trilogy, and just yesterday a new character banner was revealed.
A little while ago a banner was revealed which showed off some of the monsters we can expect to see in the film, and the new banner shows off the heroes. Not only was a new banner revealed, but also two brand new posters, one featuring Sam Worthington as Perseus, while the other features the Titan Kronos, the big villain of the film and a monster I cannot wait to see on the big screen. I still have a concern with this film though, and that is Sam Worthington;s crop on his head, just what the bloody Hell is all that about?
Anyway, Wrath of the Titans stars Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Danny Huston, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell and Edgar Ramirez. The big effects extravaganza will arrive in UK cinemas on 30th March.

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.
