STUDIO SYNOPSIS: 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 (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 (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 (Pike), Poseidon's demigod son, Argenor (Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

VISUAL REVIEW


VISUAL REVIEW by David Bruce



(iPad/iPhone here) Trailer.
Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans.


THEMES: Family Priorities. New life vs. old life. New family vs. parental family.
Unlike in the first movie, Perseus is now reluctant to join his father’s fight. It's not an easy decision, and his hesitation really comes from trying to determine what he feels is right: does he leave his son to help his father, or stay with his son and leave his father to go it alone?"


Director JONATHAN LIEBESMAN: "We tried to make an epic film in every sense of the word—an inspiring story with powerful themes, massive creatures, kinetic action sequences, spectacular settings and iconic characters played by an incredibly talented cast."


SAM WORTHINGTON as the demigod Perseus. ROSAMUND PIKE as Queen Andromeda.


LIAM NEESON as Zeus. RALPH FIENNES as Hades.
Ralph Fiennes: "I've always thought of the Greek gods as projections of human appetites and desires, especially when you think of our desire for immortality, eternal strength, eternal beauty and power. We can't have those things, so we create these larger-than-life characters and fantastical stories."


EDGAR RAMIREZ as Ares. BILL NIGHY as Hephaestus.


Father to son relationships are often complicated.
Director Liebesman: "In Greek mythology, the gods always neglect their human families. They're very selfish. Perseus, despite being a demigod, is trying to live a selfless life as a mortal, dedicated to raising his kid."



(iPad/iPhone here) Clip: “What Are You Waiting For?"
The father does what he needs to do to protect his son.


Son to father relationships are often complicated.
This story plays it both ways, father to son, and son to father. Perseus' initial choice seems to be an easy one: he's a parent, he's not going anywhere, he will stay with his son, no matter how badly his father Zeus pleads with him and no matter how many of his dreams Zeus haunts.




(iPad/iPhone here) Clip: “I Need Your Help Perseus”
What is a son to do when his dad makes a heartfelt request? Regardless of how badly Perseus may want things to go back to the way they were, it's clear to him that they're not going to—that Zeus was right, the world is changing.


LIAM NEESON (Zeus) and RALPH FIENNES (Hades) are brothers.
Brother to brother relationships are often complicated.



(iPad/iPhone here) Clip: “It Has Begun.”
A family with major issues.


Rosamund Pike: "I liked Andromeda because she felt like a real heroine for girls. I think boys have so many action hero role models in films, and there are fewer female characters like that. But Andromeda has changed a great deal from the end of the first film, when she was helpless and needed to be rescued. Now she's Queen of her country and leading her army in war. She's a fighter, and is going to make sure she never needs to be rescued again."



(iPad/iPhone here) Clip: “We Are Brothers, But Not Equal”
Brother vs. brother just like father vs. uncle. It runs in the family.



As the title indicates, "Wrath of the Titans" called forth some mammoth and mythical adversaries to pit against Perseus: the multi-headed Chimera, three one-eyed Cyclops, an army of double-bodied Makhai, and one powerful, menacing Minotaur. His most formidable opponent is, of course, Kronos, the gargantuan, heretofore imprisoned Titan and father of Zeus, Hades and Poseidon, who is on the verge of breaking free and bringing hell down on the earth.


The war comes to a climax as the over 1,500-foot Kronos bursts free of his bonds and begins to attack. Director Liebesman: "Kronos created the world from chaos, and he wants to return the world to that state. What I love about him is that he reminds me of an atomic bomb when he hits the screen—this massive explosion with tons of volcanic debris flying off of him and setting fire to everything in his path."


“Myth is, after all, the neverending story.”
--Joan D. Vinge
