8 Really Cool CLASH OF THE TITANS posters! Plus where the 9th is!

Hey folks, Harry here with a helluva cool batch of awesome. I got sent these as spy pics - My understanding is that there are nine of them, the ninth got sent to Moriarty (under the pseudonym Drew McWeeny) over at HitFix... he has Hades with Harpies. No, not Mickey's dog. I can tell you from my set visit that this film is going to surprise a bunch of you. I haven't been real pleased with a lot of the photos from the film that have been released thus far... they really do nothing to capture the scope and sense of awesome that the Sizzle Reel does. But these posters do sort of capture the feel I got from what I saw. Here ya go:

Images Removed At The Request Of Warner Bros. This Goes For Those Scalawags At HitFix, Too.

Now these are early works - the final posters could vary wildly, but I just have to say - I really like where they are headed with it. It shows a stylistic departure from the original, a more dramatic intensity - and I feel that's accurate with what Louis Leterrier is driving for here.

    Pegasus isn't even around until Medusa is slain - he's either born from her blood mingling with the earth or he springs from her neck. Perseus could already fly on his own thanks to the sandals Hermes lent him. CLASSICS 20 at UCLA thanks you for your attention.

    by ScaryWaitress

    of the 1980's. Fuck that fucking mechanical owl. Fuck him right in the ear. <P> And Det. John Kimble, since when does fact get in the way of a good script? So we wouldn't get to see the cool winged horse until AFTER Medusa is SLAIN??? That's halfway through!!! You've just lost the 8-to-13-year-old-girl demographic with that little chestnut, friend. They'd be asleep by then... and I think we ALL KNOW how that demo has hold of the purse strings.

    I LOVE the original but ...

    by MJDeViant

    I welcome a remake. It seems one of those movies that deserves a remake. It's a little loose, it wasn't hugely successful I imagine, and it deals in mythology which I love. These posters, especially the one with Perseus going at the downward angle on Pegasus, looks great in my book. AND, it will be prefect timing as God of War 3 comes out.

  • Nov. 3, 2009, 7:33 p.m. CST

    by RoarsLoudly

    The original was one of my favorite movies from the 80's. When I heard they were remaking/reimaging it I have to admit I have been scared they would ruin it. Visually it looks incredible. Lets hope that the visuals are held up by the narrative.

    Ah Yor, what a glorious piece of 80's shit you were. And to later follow that up with Space Mutiny, Robowar and Howling 2, damn, ol' Reb Brown must surely win the award for worst lead actor of the 80's. How he got into Uncommon Valor is anybody's guess. He probably just wandered onto the lot while no one was looking, declared himself to be Yor, and the rest was history. <p>By the way, did you know that Yor was originally made for italian tv, and broadcast over 4 nights. The original version actually runs close to 200 minutes (4 x 50 minuteepisodes). Can you imagine that? 200 minutes of Yor! Egads I say!

    Hey terry1978

    by IndyGold

    maybe you should have watched the classic original Ray Harryhausen crafted version of this movie, then it wouldn't have been a spoiler for you, instead of waiting to learn that in school. And I don't think it's that much of a spoiler seeing that he's given the quest to retrieve her head to use it as a weapon. Plus, I think they use the same concept in the God of War games. It's just a commonly known part of the myth, apparently not by you.

    Beacham and L. Kasdan did earlier drafts. The script they shot was by Hay and Manfreddi. It's a pretty faithful adaptation.

    by hulkiest

    You know, me and my brother were just talking about Reb Brown tonight? I mean, seriously, we were talking on and on about all the fey mannequin-faced teenyboppers that we grudgingly call Hollywood leading men these days and we devoted a special packet of venom for that unknown wooden moron in GI Joe who played Duke (who to call wooden is actually an insult to wood. Man! I can just imagine all the advertising cocks at Hasbro "Films" picking him because he has some sort of brand/name recognition value, bringing an urban contemporary "edge" to their "edgy" movie based on an 80's after school cartoon about Army shmoes who fight but never kill shmoes in Darth Vader helmets) and then Reb Brown came up as in how we wish there was a 21st Century equivalent so he could've rocked the house as Duke in GI Joe. Then we laughed about how acting-wise Reb wasn't much better than Dipshit McShithead from this year's GI Joe. But yeah, Yor: The Hunter From The Future whatta hoot. Still, Reb Brown's ten times the man than I don't know, anybody in a movie these days.

    by Cobra--Kai

    estacdao, if you've seen TAKEN then you know Liam Neeson's Zeus would calmly talk his way into Valhalla and then once inside he'd brutally kill every single motherfucker in the place using brawn and bullets. Hopkins would have his balls stamped on and then given one in the chest, one in the head.<p> Then Neeson would walk out with a drug addled teenage girl slung over his shoulder. Win to Zeus.

    TAKEN does not exist in this dojo

    by Cobra--Kai

    I don't know about Neeson for Bond but the Bond producers should definitely look at TAKEN's director, Pierre Morel because that guy clearly KNOWS how to shoot action plus manages some classy staging of potentially boring dialogue scenes. Think he could make a great Bond director. And yes I agree, TAKEN was a better film than QOS.<p> The only other film Morel's directed was a French action flick called DISTRICT 13, not one that i've seen yet. Anybody seen it?

  • Nov. 4, 2009, 5:32 a.m. CST

    YackBacker, you have no idea, maan

    by Player_Two_has_entered_the_game

    maybe in the way Warners is promoting it, but the movie is more trying to be a gods and monsters flick n the vien of the old harryhausen movies. that is a good thing. don't be put off by the promo stills so far. You will be doing yourself and the movie an injustice.

  • Nov. 4, 2009, 5:48 a.m. CST


    by Drsambeckett1984

    Neeson was up for the part of Bond when Timothy Dalton took over, and when Pierce Brosnan came in, I think he could play an older Bond. <P> Imagine if Pierre Morel got to do the next Bond movie, it might give me some hope it might not suck ass through a straw like QOS.

    by photoboy

    I'd definitely like to see Morel do the next Bond as well.

  • Nov. 4, 2009, 6:58 a.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    I don't think QOS was a bad film (as a big Bond fan i'm always gonna find something to enjoy). The opera sequence was the highlight for me. But I really didn't like the shaky-cam ADD editing of the intro car chase and that silly fight sequence where Bond and the traitor agent were swinging around on ropes.<p> The action in TAKEN was far more plausible and shot in an exciting, dramatic way without resorting to horrible quick cut editing.

    Why ? Well, it is a long story and actually quite a convoluted one, long story short, Devin actually got upset that he could not attend an advanced preview (as a member of press) to see an advanced preview of a picture that shall remain nameless. He also has a personal grudge against Jim Cameron himself. This i will explain, Devin has been blacklisted by FOX execs, the reason for this is partially down to the fact that Devin was obnoxious in reviews insulted core members of various teams and insinuated lies and lawsuits. This can even be seen today in his writings on AVATAR`s plagiarism claims. There is also it has to be said a great deal of backdoor shenanigans involving Devin and the hierarchy of FOX. In short Devin is blackballed. Devin found this out via his own message board forums. Now im not standing here trying to defend FOX`s output for the last 6 years, how could i ? What i am trying to inform you on is this... This is personal, This has nothing to do with fan expectation, it has nothing to do with the progress of cinema... IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH A PERSONAL EFFORT TO DERAIL THE PRODUCTIONS IMPACT. Yes it is pathetic, yes it is childish, but if you read Devin for any amount of time, you realise childish is exactly what Devin is. the whole AVATAR deal on is what the online industry describe as "Leaf littering" take your core audience turn them onto your ideals and use that in turn to attack your enemies. Very simple and very effective. It has been done before and it will continue to happen. It can be a good thing, however when the motives become personal and not representative of the greater fact, that is when moral issues arise. I have it on high authority FOX and in particular Jim Cameron is highly upset with Devin and the continuing abuse he keeps throwing at not just the production but the people who this movie is aimed at (which by the way, is everyone). If you were to lay out the level of abuse aimed at AVATAR and pin that to the production outgoings, you will clearly see that Chud and the level of attack has steadily gone up with the anticipation, until finally we see an attack so blatant and mean that it will make even the most skeptic sit up and pay attention, Devin is literally trying to get third parties involved to actually file lawsuits against the core creators of AVATAR, in particular James Cameron. I am told this is serious stuff, and fox is itching for Devin to step a foot out of line so he can be drawn over the coals. This is a very childish and personal situation Devin has created for himself. My guess is the biggest backlash will eventually fall on Devin
