Actor Sam Worthington has pulled a Shia LaBeouf by trashing his recent film, Clash of the Titans. But don’t worry! The upcoming sequel, Wrath of the Titans, won’t suck my tiny, three-inch cyclops.
I’m really bad at detecting sarcasm, so I’m not 100% sure that the script has really gone though ten drafts. But even an idiot can tell that Neeson’s comment about the quality of the story was facetious. Good one, Liam.

Warner Bros is aiming high for the sequel to Clash Of The Titans. But maybe they’re aiming a little too high.
Jonathan Liebesman will direct Clash of the Titans II, Coming Soon is reporting. Liebesman, who also directed the upcoming Battle: Los Angeles, will most likely be joined by Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton, who both starred in the first installment. Unlike the first film, which was retrofitted, the sequel will be shot entirely in 3D. Also, unlike the first film, Clash of the Titans II will supposedly have a plot mapped out before shooting begins.
(Spoiler Alert) Hopefully this sequel will avoid some of the pitfalls of its predecessor. For example, one of the worst scenes from Clash of the Titans was the ending, when Zeus randomly resurrected a character who had died earlier in the film. Resurrection? Talk about an unbelievable cop out? No wonder no one worships Zeus anymore.
Warner Bros is eying director Jonathan Liebesman (Darkness Falls, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) to helm the second installment of their recently rebooted Clash of the Titans franchise. The film will most likely be shot in 3D, and is tentatively scheduled to begin production in early in 2011.I'm not exactly sure why Warner Bros. is putting money behind a sequel. By almost any standard, the first film was awful. But on a side note, the original did make $487 million worldwide. I'm beginning to think the only justification for revisiting the project is that it might make money, and frankly, I'm a little dispointed in Hollywood right now. Shame on you guys for chasing the almighty dollar instead of trying to make art. (First Showing)
Alexa Davalos is a ballerina who decided to try acting on for size, and it's turned out pretty well for her. She's starred in the films The Chronicles of Riddick, The Mist, and Defiance. Take it easy, Whedon fans! I was getting to her three episode arc on Angel. A word from Alexa: "I would never close any doors to anything and if it were a character that I loved regardless, I would definitely give it thought but that is my first love, film."Yeah, who goes to the theater anymore besides nerds. And yes, intellectuals count as totaly nerds to me.More of Alexa's free spirit after the jump.

It's no secret that we here at Screen Junkies have an infinity for mustaches. This featurette for Clash of the Titans shows a lot of cool new footage, but it's Liam Neeson's facial hair that really takes the spotlight. Deep down I knew that if Neeson grew a mustache it would be an exemplary one, I just had no idea how exemplary. If acting doesn't work out, the man should sell mustaches at the store I'll be opening soon that will surely be denied a business loan. The featurette also contains new Medusa footage and unicorns, so you're going to want to check it out after the jump.
"I'm gonna get you so good, Sam Worthington." Up until now, all the materials we've seen from Clash of the Titans have focused mainly on Liam Neeson's permed beard, monster-fighting, and the Monsters of Rock soundtrack. The new international trailer offers a change of pace by taking a breath to set up the plot of the movie. It seems that the mortals have drawn the ire of Hades so naturally it's statue-tumbling time. To make matters worse, the humans rebel against the Gods which provokes Zeus to the point where he's forced to use his shockwave fist-slam (that's how you know when he's pissed). Then, it's all out war and Gemma Arterton shows up to act stalkery. After that, it's mainly what we've seen before: Sam Worthington fighting the Starship Troopers bugs, an Orc, that monster from Pan's Labyrinth, and those angel-monsters that were out-of-place in Max Payne. And, of course, it closes with Liam Neeson releasing his Kraken. Seriously Liam, quit whipping that thing out all the time. Check out the trailer after the jump.
It's a regular 'ol third dimensional bonanza, and Warner Bros. is hot to trot! 3D conversion tests on Clash of the Titans have made studio execs go pee-pee in their pants, so not only are they going forth with a conversion of the entire film, but they're also turning both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into eye-puncturing 3D.3D conversion expenses have lowered in price, now ONLY $5 MILLION, so the films won't cost more than a small Malibu bungalow to convert. The studios will also absorb an additional $5 million to provide theaters with the awesome glasses that constanstly slip down your face while you're trying to watch the g.d. movie. Maybe they can throw another $2 mill in there to add some nose pads.Warners will push the release of Clash of the Titans one week to April 2 in order to fine tune the depth of Liam Neeson's kracken. (THR)
Those of you who prefer Sam Worthington to protrude unnaturally from the screen may be in luck. In the wake of Avatar's box office death-grip, Warner Bros executives are now considering converting the epic to 3D. Within the next 10 days, they will screen a few converted scenes and then make the call whether the full conversion is worth it.A possible reason for the upgrade is that DreamWorks Animation’s big kid-friendly feature How to Train Your Dragon is also releasing over the March 26th weekend. If Titans wants a bid at number one, they'll need the higher-priced tickets. But between Dragon and Avatar (which will probably still be crushing all who oppose it) will there be enough 3D screens?Like Warners, I'm not 100% on-board with the conversion. At first, it seems like a good idea to have Liam Neeson's Kraken swinging in your face. But, I don't know. It might just be too much Kraken. (THR)
Susan Boyle makes her feature film debut. Just in time for Avatar, we have a new Clash of the Titans trailer that absolutely defenestrates subtlety. It's essentially the teaser trailer with all the bells and whistles added. In it we see giant scorpians, Zeus, Hades, sand people, lava, dudes yelling, Medusa, Pete Postlethwaite, Pegasus, those helmets with mohawks on top, and palm eyeballs. But the real spectacle is Liam Neeson's Kraken. It's much larger than rumored. Clash of the Titans damns the Gods on March 26th, 2010. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Who needs coffee in the morning when you can inject the Clash of the Titans teaser trailer into your eyeballs?! Holy crap, I am pumped! I was hoping for giant scorpians or mutant sand-people, but I never expected both. Not to mention all the leaping. I don't think I've ever seen so much leaping and bounding in one single minute. Sam Worthington jumps into canyons, over canyons, around canyons, and there's usually fire trailing him. The official synopsis for the film is that it follows Perseus on his quest to battle Medusa and the Kraken in order to save the Princess Andromeda. Hey, whatever, there's rock music accompanied by a symthony orchestra. It's really the only way to score a brutal battle between the Gods. And if I'm not mistaken, is that Slash playing in the desert?
