The freshly released promo video shows Perseus' new adventure as he embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
The first trailer for "Wrath of the Titans" has been debuted, giving a look at a new epic war between the gods and the titans. The sneak-peek video is filled with intense battle and monster-killing scenes involving Sam Worthington's Perseus, who now has longer hair. It additionally gives a first look at Rosamund Pike who takes over the role of heroine Andromeda from Alexa Davalos.
A sequel to 2010's "Clash of the Titans", the movie is set a decade after Perseus defeated the Kraken. As he attempts to live a new life as a fisherman and a father to 10-year old Helius, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos.
When Hades and Ares team up to capture Zeus, Perseus cannot ignore his true calling. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda, Poseidon's demigod son Argenor, and fallen god Hephaestus, he bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
Director Jonathan Liebesman recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly of his take on "Wrath" compared to the first movie. He said, "I'm spending more time amongst the gods. The world is in a different place now. The gods are dying. It's not as magical-looking. There's obviously still massive fantasy and fantastical elements, but the world itself doesn't look as slick as it did. It's a more decayed, gritty world, with the same fantastical creatures and characters in there."
"Wrath of the Titans" is due to open wide in the U.S. on March 30, 2012. Also supporting the epic war movie are the likes of Ralph Fiennes as villainous Hades, Liam Neeson as king of the gods Zeus, Danny Huston as god of the sea Poseidon, Edgar Ramirez as traitorous Ares, and Bill Nighy as Hephaestus.
