Let me ask you this, do you STILL need convincing that director Jonathan Liebesman’s Wrath of the Titans is going to be all kinds of awesomeness? Well, if that is the case then maybe this recent featurette will help your unbelief. Focusing on the creature called The Chimera, the design may not be exact to how the monster was portrayed in myth, but it sure as Hell looks amazing. This ferocious creature is part of the opening of the film, and appears as it attacks Perseus’ village.
The special effects really do look wonderful in this new ‘Titans’ film, and as I keep on saying, it is clear the makers have learnt from the mistakes of Clash of the Titans, and have gone all out here to deliver a thrilling, loud, pulse pounding adventure. Of course The Chimera is not the only monster we will have the pleasure of witnessing on screen, there will also be a large number of massive beasts, including the most vicious of all, Kronos.
Wrath of the Titans stars Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Danny Huston, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell and Edgar Ramirez. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman 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.
