Liam Neeson's Zeus offers to reconcile and join forces with Ralph Fiennes' Hades, but gets ruthlessly attacked by the God of Underworld who has made an alliance with Ares, the God of War.
In anticipation of the U.S. release of "Wrath of the Titans", Warner Bros. Pictures unveils a first clip from the Greek myth epic film. The intense snippet sees Liam Neeson's Zeus offering a coalition with his brother Hades, played by Ralph Fiennes. He, however, gets ruthlessly attacked by the God of Underworld with the help of Ares, who is portrayed by Edgar Ramirez.
This sequel to 2010's "Clash of the Titans" takes place a decade after Zeus' son, Perseus, defeated the Kraken. As the hero 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.
Jonathan Liebesman serves behind the lens for "Wrath of the Titans", which is penned by scribe duo David Leslie Johnson and Dan Mazeau, and will open wide March 30. Sam Worthington returns as heroic Perseus, and joined in the cast ensemble by Danny Huston as Poseidon, Bill Nighy as Hephaestus, Toby Kebbell as Agenor, and Rosamund Pike as Andromeda.
