Sam Worthington Talks ‘Wrath of the Titans’
On the promotional campaign for ‘Man on a Ledge,’ Sam Worthington opened up to Collider about Jonathan Liebesman’s (Battle: Los Angeles) upcoming ‘Clash Of the Titans’ sequel, ‘Wrath of the Titans.’ Having seen the film, Worthington explained how it differs from the first flick: “I’ve seen the movie, it’s awesome. I love it. It’s the same world [as Clash of the Titans]; it’s got big f*ckin’ monsters, it’s a blockbuster. Everything that I personally felt that I’d let down in the first one, I got the chance to rectify.”
The actor also spoke on Jonathan Liebesman’s plan to make the film more realistic, and described the director’s approach to CG characters in the pic: “he wanted it to be like a Ridley Scott kind of feel. It was more this: putting CG characters into this kind of world, it shouldn’t seem as if the CG characters are the whole thing, we got the creatures in there but they’ve gotta mesh with what we’ve set up, rather than us going to them they had to mesh with us. But primarily what it is, it’s about fathers and sons. It just happens to have a sh*t load of monsters, it just happens to be set in a greek mythological world, but essentially it’s about a father and a son, that’s what it’s about.”
Warner Bros has pencilled in a March 30th, 2012 release date for ‘Wrath Of The Titans.’ Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramiez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell, and Rosamund Pike will star. Check out the full synopsis below.
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.
Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
