Apparently, they will, in fact, yâ€™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 goreâ€”the guy was carrying a gorgonâ€™s head around with him, after allâ€”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 theÂ goes, this could be awesome, but I kind of like my Greek myths relatively clean. And no matter how actually dirty they get, I donâ€™t think this movie has any better grasp on â€œgrittyâ€ than the original, rather it looks like itâ€™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 â€œthankfully-I-didnâ€™t-wear-track-pantsâ€ excited, but pretty up there.
