Apparently, they will, in fact, y’know . . . clash.
So, we finally have a trailer for Clash of the Titans.
I was a big fan of the original Clash of the Titans. It was a very Victorian look at the Greek myths as an adventure movie. Granted, there was violence, and a certain amount of gore—the guy was carrying a gorgon’s head around with him, after all—but it was relatively sanitized.
This movie does not look sanitized at all. Rather, it looks 300-ized. That is not necessarily a bad thing, and as grist for the goes, this could be awesome, but I kind of like my Greek myths relatively clean. And no matter how actually dirty they get, I don’t think this movie has any better grasp on “gritty” than the original, rather it looks like it’s just more over the top action. In my mind, that does not gritty make.
Of course, this is all based on the trailer, and I could be completely wrong. Ask anyone, it is possible.
I will not lie to you, this movie has got me excited. Not quite “thankfully-I-didn’t-wear-track-pants” excited, but pretty up there.
