Here’s the trailer for Jonathan Liebesman’s “Wrath of the Titans,” the sequel to Louis Leterrier’s “Clash of the Titans,” which is itself a remake of a 1981 film by Desmond Davis. Liebesman also directed “Darkness Falls,” which took a great idea–the story of the Tooth Fairy, and her murderous attachment to the collection of teeth, and made it into something that was–on the whole–somewhat boring.
Leterrier is a director I tend to like, particularly after his work on the reboot of Marvel’s “The Incredible Hulk,” though “Clash” left me a bit cold.
It could have been because of the terrible post-conversion 3D; it could have been that the coolest thing about the entire movie was The Kraken, pictured below.
This is despite the original creature being created by the stop-motion special effects genius, Ray Harryhausen, while the update is composed of little more than pixels and many anonymous man-hours.
I am a little hesitant about “Wrath,” though I hope the finished film lives up to the trailer.
