Movie news: Clash of the Titans
Clash of the Titans is due out on March 26 in the UK and April 2 in the US and Warner Brothers have just released new images. The massive remake of the 1981 classic stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson amongst other big names and the film looks to be explosive.
Sam Worthington is certainly a star on the rise and has starred in blockbusters such as Terminator Salvation and Avatar recently.
The Warner Brothers site describes Clash of the Titans as an ultimate power struggle where men are fighting against kings and kings in turn are fighting against gods. It is the war between the gods themselves, the clash of the Titans, that threatens to destroy the whole world though and it is up to Perseus (Sam Worthington), the son of Zeus, to take on the vengeful god of the underworld Hades (Ralph Fiennes). So it is that Perseus races to save his family and leads a mission to defeat Hades before he succeeds in his plan to seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth.
The release of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief this month and Clash of the Titans next month will be followed by a test on Greek mythology at the end of April to ensure that you’ve all been concentrating!
