(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)
The first trailer for Clash of the Titans sequel, Wrath of the Titans, has been released online by iTunes Trailers this week.
Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, The Wrath of the Titans follows Perseus (Sam Worthington), the demigod son of Zeus, who, a decade after his historic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, is attempting to live a quieter life whilst looking after his 10-year old son, Helius.
Meanwhile, weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. When Hades (Ralph Fiennes), along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal to capture Zeus, Perseus can no longer ignore his true calling. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus must embark on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus (Liam Neeson) and overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote the Wrath of the Titans’ screenplay with Steven Knight, have also recently been enlisted to develop a third instalment.
The film is set to be released on 30th March, 2012, and you can see the new trailer and posters below:
