Man, those pesky Titans, always causing trouble. But at least the Titans of “Battle: Los Angeles” director Jonathan Liebesman’s “Wrath of the Titans” looks more formidable than the mindless, black-tarred things running around Tarsem Singh’s “Immortals”. In any case, with the theatrical trailer for Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” burning up the Interwebs this afternoon, Warner Bros. has decided to double down and released the first trailer for “Wrath of the Titans” as well. And I have to admit, this thing looks a hell of a lot better than I had expected. Go figure.

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington) –the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)–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 (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). 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 Ramirez), switch loyalties 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.

Starring Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramiez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike and directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

    Sam Worthington’s hair is incredible.

      He is half-god, after all. Special conditioner and such, I would imagine.

        That is one of the perks of being the child of a god, you have access to the best hair care products. We’re talking experimental things not even on the market yet.

    Wow! Had to re-read that summary twice to get it all. Need an abridgment for that synopsis.

    Hope the 3d is good

    This looks better than the first one. But then you can only go up from that first attempt.

    Looks good. But so did the first one. Major Nitpick: What´s up with these ridiculous rock soundtracks in these trailers. Bothered me big time with “Conan” and now this. Judging from those great sets, costumes and effects you could think that the studios could afford a nice instrumental score fitting the plot and background of the movie?!

    Glad they were able to get most of the principle cast back. I liked the first one but definitely felt it could’ve been better. This looks pretty epic.

    @Justjoe- They’re still riding the “300″ wave with the music.

      The music in the trailer of 300 was way better than this, really made you feel the energy.

    i like the trailer so far, hope it will be better than part 1 (and that the 3d is also better).
