See Pics Of A Boat From The CLASH OF THE TITANS Sequel!!

Merrick here...

TumbaAbierta has some snapshots of a boat from the CLASH OF THE TITANS sequel; I'm pretty sure these images represent our first spy photos from the film, but if I'm wrong be sure to drop a link into the Talkback below.

I'd post a few of the shots here, but I can't seem to post images to the site at the moment for reasons yet to be determined.  However, you can find a gallery of said snapshots HERE

WRATH OF THE TITANS (I don't believe that title has been officially confirmed yet, although everybody's using it so they might as well go ahead and call it that) is due in theaters next March and is being directed by BATTLE: LOS ANGELES' Jonathan Liebesman.

    will the bad guy help the hero, like zeus did in the first one?

    Just watched this Yesterday And...

    by Wcwlkr

    That movie freaking SUCKED! Perseus was a incredible whiny bitch. And when you make so that I could care less about your freaking quest and actually root for you to fail then you've done a incredibly poor writing job. Plus waited an 1:22 min to hear you say "Release the Kraken" and when you get to it I'm like meh. Yeah no desire to see this crap at all.

    Still prefer the ORIGINAL Clash

    by darthderp

    You had Olivier chewing the scenery with relish, you had Burgess Merideth (always cool), you had an insanely hot Judi Bowker as Andromeda, and you also had f'king MEDUSA - one of Ray Harryhausen's crown jewels; no amount of CGI could produce something that nightmarish.

  • April 25, 2011, 9:26 a.m. CST

    Freaky.

    by SmallLebowski

    Really freaky.

    Agree with Movienut401

    by Wcwlkr

    I completely agree with you. Even though effects wise seriously dated. The original Clash was leaps and bounds better than this piece of crap! Which would be a more fitting title for the sequel "Crap of the Titans"

  • April 25, 2011, 9:34 a.m. CST

    Who else thinks

    by Rob

    Harry Hamlin should have played Zeus in the remake?? He is this generation's Laurence Olivier...

  • April 25, 2011, 9:39 a.m. CST

    wcwlkr - effects may be not as crisp as CGI animation, but still...

    by darthderp

    Sometimes I prefer something that is physically there over something that is whipped up just by moving a mouse - not that CGI animation is that simple, but you get what I'm saying? Those scorpions, Medusa, the original Kraken - maybe they were miniatures, but dammit, they EXIST. I guess what I'm trying to get as is, as slick as today's movies are, sometimes there's nothing like Old School.

  • April 25, 2011, 9:43 a.m. CST

    movienut401

    by Rob

    You are right, Old School is way better than all those other movies. Luke Wilson never gets enough credit playing the straight man, and Vince Vaughn is living on a whole 'nother plane of comedy genius in that movie!

    Let's hope Liebsman learns how to shoot quiet dialogue scenes

    by D.Vader

    Not every shot has to be herky-jerky zooms and extremely loose handheld. Doing that in the earlier, quiet scenes is frankly retarded.

  • April 25, 2011, 10:18 a.m. CST

    Can't wait for more hypocrisy from Perseus.

    by thommcg

    Yeah, yeah, we get it, you "hate" the Gods and "don't want" their powers but you'll happily accept them and use all their gifts won't you. Give me a break. If they wanted to end Clash on a proper note he woulda killed Io (re-killed) & Pegasus - then gave Zeus the finger. Cue credits.

  • April 25, 2011, 10:32 a.m. CST

    The problem isn't so much that Perseus accepts the Gods' gifts

    by D.Vader

    But he does so without ANY conflict over it, without any begrudging thanks, without ANY sort of cathartic realization that "Hey, I'm only human, and I DO need help from time to time." No he just takes the gifts and hopes no one notices he acted like such a douchebag about it before. Terrible writing.

    Hmmm.. clash of the Titans.. as tiptoed about by AICN staffers

    by LargoJr

    Was funny reading how everyone involved REFUSED to just come right out and say how crushingly disappointing the film was until a year later when the Studio wouldn't give a flaming shit. I'm quite sure AICN will be ready with it's normal ball cradling, cock gobling best when time comes to fan moviegoers' lackluster 'meh' response into frenzied anticipation...

    since i was a boy i wanted a 'clash' remake...

    by soup74

    and those dreams we're realized.. badly. now the sequel is being done by the guy who did the horrible 'Battle:LA' (and i was excited for that one too.) i guess im done with this.

  • April 25, 2011, 2:14 p.m. CST

    Make it R rated, with Gemma topless then whole time

    by Saen

    and Id see it in a theater, otherwise Ill wait till its on HBO like i did the last one.

  • I don't feel like rehashing it all right now. Suffice to say, I think the above discussions about Perseus spending the movie rejecting the God's gifts only to accept them at the end without any conflict over it speaks VOLUMES about how bad this movie was written.

  • April 25, 2011, 2:15 p.m. CST

    And I agree about Medusa being in Hades

    by D.Vader

    It added absolutely NOTHING to the story whatsoever, and in the end made zero sense.

  • April 25, 2011, 2:35 p.m. CST

    A rarity - a SF/Fan movie I am postively NOT looking forward to

    by VAwitch

    My problems with Clash v2.0: Changed the death of Perseus' mom Completely f*d up Io's story (Zeus banged her for pete's sake!! Then changed her into a cow to help hide her from the wife (Hera) - which didn't work. Medusa's story was changed as well - plus the "in Hades" - which, in *every* G-R myth - if you're alive, you're running a gauntlet of trials to get OUT of Hades (Oedypus or Hercules, anyone?) Pegasus was born of Medusa's blood that landed in the ocean (&/or fathered by Posiden during the sex that caused her to be cursed into a Gorgon), thus not a gift of the Gods. The other-mentioned of Perseus giving the finger to Zeus & co - but then taking their gifts, using them, then bitching about said gifts... I ended up having to take the remake as a stand-alone entity - b/c of these inconsistencies. Although it would have been nice to have more HootHoot.

    by Durendal

    So much was awful about this movie. The acting was bad. The pacing was awful. The characters were paper-thin and inconsistent if they were even fleshed out enough to BE consistent in the first place. Liam Neeson was boring. Ralph Fiennes completely phoned it in as Hades and just slapped a Voldermort voice on top of it. It relied way, WAY too heavily on special effects. The story was a meandering mess that seemed to include bits just because the first one did. Calibos actually had a point in the first one. In this? Nothing. Hell, there wasn't much point to any of it except the studios milking an existing name to make more money from braindead moviegoes dumb enough to buy this shit.

    ("They're making a sequel to that piece of shit?")

    by Todd1700

    My thoughts exactly. How bad does a movie have to suck before they hold off on making a sequel? I also thought the first one didn't do that well at the box office. I could understand a straight to DVD sequel maybe but another big budget theatrical follow up to that initial turdfest. Why?

  • And the 4th will be called THE TITANS VOYAGE HOME?

    by AsimovLives

    The problem is that the majority of the AICN people in here love the hype circus and fall for it line hook and sinker, and they are too proud to admit when they have been had and cheapply manipulated by studio hype. And it takes them a whole amount of time to realsie they were fooled into liking a dumb piece of studio shit. Frankly, i beleive the typical AICN crowd person loves the hype more then the movies proper. Or how else there is still so much love and support for so many talentless hacks and their crappy movies in here?

    Cuz it made a lot more money than Golden Compass

    by Jaster

    The Golden Compass Cost: $180M Gross: $372M =$192M Profit (not counting prints/advertising) Clash of the Titans Cost: $125M Gross: $493M =$368M Profit (not counting prints/advertising) Plus, Titans is just easier to sell. You can sell toys of the various creatures and playsets and characters kids want to have figures of. Aside from the polar bear, what can you sell from Compass? A figure of a mouthy little bitch?

    The Golden Compass was a big Steamy Pile of shit

    by D o o d

    The moment they removed all reference to the church and how much the author, Philip Pullman, hates the church. That became a dead franchise. If you're making a movie based on the book and you water it down, then you've lost already!

  • There was no excuse for how dull, bland and forgettable, 2010s clash of the titans was. All the ingredients for a truly great ancient greek adventure movie were in there : Vengeful gods, monsters, a perilous quest, far off exotic lands, a damsel in distress a hero with an amazing destiny, A FUCKING FLYING HORSE, etc. The film also had a capable cast, a huge budget and the advantage of being based on a film that had room for improvement. Yet ,despite all of the good things it had going for it ,the movie turned out to be a dissapointingly bland and monotonous waste of potential. The only good thing i can say about the sequel is that it doesnt have to try very hard to improve on the last movie.....but is that really saying much? No.

    All the ingredients, father ...but no narrative

    by Metebelis3

    ...at least no narrative that made a lick of sense, or had internal consistency, or 3 dimensional characters (the fucking irony) for you to give a damn about. If you watched the thing at 8x speed and so with no sound, it would probably look more like Fellowship of The Rings in sandals. Except you have a bunch a dudes joining Perseus on what will be a life-threatening quest and, aside from those that know him (barely), they're mostly just along ...just cuz! Wtf? Even freaking Aladdin's Genie-Djinn whatevers decide to tag along ...cuz ...I dunno, wanted to get out of the sun for a few days? father called it right, all the 'quest/adventure' movie set pieces and visuals were there - and done pretty well truth be told, but everything that moved the protagonists to and from those set peices was so damn arbitrary and random seeming from the characters points of view. Cheese, ham, mushroom and pepperoni, with peppers, onions and artichokes put together with some artistry makes for a great pizza. You can find the same ingredients put together with considerably less artistry in sidewalk puke.

    the original film had to tackle with all kinds of technological problems so you forgive it for that. However, what was their excuse with this..? It was terrible film because it's lazy studio film making. Having a shitty director on your movie doesn't help either!

    At least in the remake I gave somewhat of a shit when everyone died

    by Larry Sellers

    The remake was unsatisfying on several levels. But at least they tried to write a coherent fucking story. TRIED. Leave the nostalgia behind and consider the empty motivations in the original. Classic effects, classy actors, creepy Medusa, but horribly shallow characters.

  • April 27, 2011, 2:01 a.m. CST

    larry sellers

    by AsimovLives

    The narrative of the original Clash Of The Titans is cohesive and the motivations are clearly drawn. More so then even from the original myth, considering our modern narrative demands. It's the bloody remake that has a story which has no coheson or sense whatsoever. Tried, you say, for the emake? Well, maybe, at the start, then they gave up completly. By the midway through it was just random shit happening with no rhyme or reason. And then the main character does a 180 degree turn and start getting the gifts of the gods without so much a change of mind or a realization. It's all random shit. It's all JJ Abrams School of Storytelling, where random shit happens so the plot can advance from the numerous narrative dead-ends, without any internal logic to it. Despiste the flaws one can find in the original CLASH, the movie still wins over by it's charm and it's dedication to the story it tells. Despiste all the good technical achievements of the remake, the movie loses because it's just a whole pile of bullshit in quick sucession one after the other, a bad case of corporate filmmaaing at it's most souless worst. I just don't understand how this director became such a souless hack. His DISTRICT 13 movie, while being just a mere unpretentious action movie, it did had an heart and a soul to it. Where did he lost it?

  • April 27, 2011, 2:04 a.m. CST

    And i couldn't give a shit who died in the remake.

    by AsimovLives

    Not even the great danish actor Madds Mikkelsen who was doing a soft lame version of his badass character from VALHALLA RISING mannaged to register, which is quite an achievement of lame ass filmmaking. I cared for the charactersin the original CLASH, even the villain Caliban. In the remake, not evne the hero deserved my care. In fac,t the only character i gave a shit for was Io played by Gemma Anterton, and that was more due to her hotness.
