Last year’s hit film Clash of the Titans is the poster child for bad 3D post-conversion. Everyone complained about getting headaches during the movie or there being little to no difference between watching the movie with or without glasses. Jonathan Liebesman is fully aware of this. The director of Battle: Los Angeles has been tasked with directing the sequel, Wrath of the Titans. Despite the negative 3D connotation attached to the first film, he’ll be going the same route.
Wrath of the Titans, scheduled for release March 23, 2012 starring Sam Worthington, Rosamund Pike and Liam Neeson, will be shot on film and then post converted into 3D. But is he making the same mistake that was forced on his predecessor, Louis Letterier? Not according to Liebesman, who said the first film was never thought of as a 3D movie. This movie, however, is being totally conceived with the 3rd dimension in mind. Read some quotes and more reasoning after the jump. Read More »

With his down and dirty good looks, Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez is already practically a god to many women. But now he’s about to officially become one to all of us.

It takes a big man to admit he’s wrong and Sam Worthington is certainly a big man. The star of the biggest movie of all time, Avatar, had quite a year in 2010, riding the box office and award waves of Pandora while also headlining Clash of the Titans, which pulled in almost half a billion dollars worldwide. (Yes, you read that right.) Worthington is getting ready to shoot a sequel to Clash of the Titans called Wrath of the Titans, directed by Jonathan Liebesman and scheduled for March 30, 2012 release. Not only has he said this will be the movie fans want, he agrees that the first film wasn’t all it could be. Read his quote after the break. Read More »
Time to mark up your calendar. Three films, each of which is aimed at a very different audience, have set release dates. Let’s get the ugly one out of the way first: Warner Bros. has locked Wrath of the Titans, directed by Jonathan Liebesman, for March 30, 2012 — basically the same place in the calendar that saw the release of Clash of the Titans this year. Liam Neeson will return as Zeus, and presumably Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton will reprise their roles from Clash as well.

It was a big weekend for rumors; sadly a lot of the most fun genre and superhero film stories are little more than unconfirmed rumor at this point. Pajiba, for example, tweeted that Marvel has a pitch out to writers for a War Machine spin-off film. This is more like a vague confirmation of what we’ve expected to happen, and since Marvel will need some core content to follow The Avengers, we’re bound to hear about another group of films to follow. Seeing an Iron Man spin-off starring Don Cheadle could be a lot of fun, and we’ll update if someone is hired to write the film.
After the break, very tentative updates and rumors on the Escape From New York remake and Clash of the Titans 2, aka Wrath of the Titans. Read More »
