The CLASH OF THE TITANS Sequel Has A New Andromeda!!

 

Merrick here...

 

Per THR, looks like Rosamund Pike is in negotiations to take over the role of Andromeda in the WRATH OF THE TITANS (if that title holds), the sequel to last year's Louis Leterrier-directed CLASH  OF THE TITANS remake.  Andromeda was portrayed by Alexa Davalos in that picture, which grossed north of $493 million globally.  Davalos couldn't join the CLASH follow-up due to scheduling conflicts and considerations.  

Pike was recently been mentioned as a contender for the 'female lead' in Zack Snyder's new SUPERMAN movie - guess that one's off the table now.  

BATTLE: LOS ANGELES director Jonathan Liebesman will helm WRATH, which goes before cameras quite soon with returning cast Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, (and others)?

    by Cobra--Kai

    thenothing, I thought Mads Mikelssen was in the one redeeming stretch of the movie. For about 30 mins out of the running time the plot became a 'men on a machine' movie, with a quite interesting little ensemble of warriors fighting alongside Sam Worthington.<p> I always like an ensemble of guys like that cos you can play the 'predict who dies next' drinking game!

    Overreaction Jackson.

    by blackwood

    The first one was okay. Nothing special, but a bit of matinee fun. Sort of like PRINCE OF PERSIA. Neither rose above, but I didn't feel like either fell completely flat. Some fun bits, some eye-rolly bits, the best parts seem truncated and you could feel many many fingerprints all over where there shouldn't be any but the director's. I didn't see either in the theatres, though. Maybe that's why they didn't, like, ruin my life and all art and every film all in one fell swoop, like they apparently did for many TB denizens.

    I like the first movie. I'm not gong to claim it's a masterpiece becasue that's absurd, but i like it's hojesty and sense of innocence about it, which does match the story of Persus, because of all the greek myths, he's the only one who isn't a dick and gets brough down by his hubris and dickery. Perseus is the only genuinely good guy of the whole greek myths.

    by MattmanReturns

    I took no pleasure in murdering him in God of War II. Didn't care for him in the new movie, as he was played by Sam Worthington. If you could somehow combine the new effects with the original cast and story, you'd have a masterpiece.

    by MattmanReturns

    Definitely not for everyone, but being a huge fan of the original Conan, it was perfect for me.

    by adml_shake

    I 100% agree. She was the only thing in that entire movie that didn't make me turn it off when I rented it. Stupid flow to the story, stupid story in general, most of the people were only there to do nothing and be killed off in pointless ways, and the hero walks around looking like he's high on pot most of the time.

  • Feb. 9, 2011, 3:57 p.m. CST

    kwisatzhaderach, exactly

    by MattmanReturns

    That film was a visual feast. Modern film has no patience for lingering on gorgeous photography, unfortunately. Everything is shortchanged before your brain has a chance to register what it's looking at. Valhalla was refreshing. Centurion is not nearly as good or interesting a film, but even that I appreciated because the filmmakers took the actors outside and risked frostbite to achieve something tangible.

    The Clash Remake

    by cushing1967

    Wasn't quite as bad as I thought it would be. But then I saw it on Bluray and had expected something iredeemable and in amongst all of the bollocks there was Mads Mikkelsen, Pete Posthlewaite, Jason Flemyng and Liam Cunningham (all actors I enjoy watching). It was fairly obvious that there was a lot of studiio interference - including Perseus being all anti-gods and then all 'Oh, you big galoot' to Zeus at the end. I think that there was a better film stymied by the fact that the studios seemed to want something a bit more sequel friendly or whatever. I adore Rosamund Pike so I'll watch the sequel.

    by AsimovLives

    I don't hate Sam Worthington. I have no bad ill agaisnt him. But the dude felt pretty badly cast in the movie. And aparently some of the flaws in the movie are due to his pressure for script changes. I can't verify that, but there's that story going on. The approach to CLASH OF THE TITANS was just... weird. It didn't felt right, it felt phoney. i mean, i'm an atheirs,t a movie that pisses on religion and gods would in principle make me as happy as a pig in shit. and yet the movie felt phoney and obtuse form start to finish. The oly thing i really liked about it was some of the actors, like Madds Mikkelson The Great, the ultra-lovely Gemma Anterton, and the Charon's ship has a wicked design, in both definitions of the word. Otherwise, what dreack. The only entertaiment value i got form the movie was the hillarious sight of seeing the hair floating detached from the actor's heads thanks to the fucking terrible 3D! And it's great to know you also share the love for VALHALLA RISING. Now that's a kick-ass historical movie, with a subtle hint at the supernatural but never explained. I love that movie!

  • Sights and wonders indeed! How the hell that ever happened? That's failure of a Michael Bay magnitude right there!

    VALHALLA RISING teaches how you make a movie about vikings and indians and not fucking up. VALHALLA RISING teaches that you don't need to use all-CGI backgrounds to make a visually aresting movie about badasses fighting each other. VALHALLA RISING also made me want to visit Scotland badly. Where is that Jack Graham talkbacker who used to post in here? The dude is scottish and he lived near where the movie was shot, near loch Ness.

    "Perseus sold out to dear ol' dad long before he was given the hot girl at the end. He used both the sword and the Pegasus and they were "gifts from the gods. Am I right?" You are very right. The movie turned the nicest most humane greek hero of the whole mythology and turned him into a whining bitch. By Jove, what a cock up that movie was! Perseus: "Dad, fuck off, i don't want anything from you!" Persues gets his ass kicked. Zeus: "So kid, you want this magic sword and the flying horsy and the hot girl?" Perseus: "Yeah, dad, they come in handy. Fuck my ideals, having a rich dad rules!" When i was watching CLASH OF THE TITANS and perseus kept on bitching he didn't want any help from the gods, even though his pals were being killed left and right, and the godly helped would had prevented senseless death, i could tell this Perseus was a fucking cunt. Let other people die just so he can make a point? Fuck you, asshole!

    Clash of the titans?.......

    by Father

    ...... man, what a piece of shit. Its just boring , dull and completely uninteresting scenes of people sulking, sandwhiched between mediocre action sequences. It had a huge budget, a capable cast as well as an amazingly rich mythology to work with and yet it just fucking sucked . It could have been amazing , i mean all of the right ingredients were in there! Magic weapons , monsters , interventions by all powerful gods, brave heroes and far off lands- this is grade A material for a great adventure movie. There was no excuse for such and underwhelming film. The only good thing i can say about a sequel is that it really doesnt have to try hard to top the original (by which i mean the 2010 original) , but that aint saying much .

    by Orionsangels

    Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," priestess in Athena's temple, but when she and the "Lord of the Sea" Poseidon lay together in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone!

    by Bent

    I can't believe they didn't put the director in Director's jail from the 1st one. Did they really make that much money from the first film. I guess so since I even saw it. Although it was free from the library. I'm sure there are thousands of filmakers that would love to have their movie get into a theater and would probably be better. How does a bad movie's sequel even get distributed? Aspiring filmakers want to know!
