Watch the New Clash of the Titans Trailer

I’ve been waiting to see this for awhile now. This is the ‘Clash of the Titans’ teaser trailer. ‘Clash of the Titans’ is the remake of the 1981 film of the same name. When I first heard about the remake I thought to myself “Oh god why?!?” Later I heard that Louis Leterrier was signed to direct, I got a little more excited. Then I heard that Lawrence Kasdan was writing the screenplay and I thought WOW! Well time has moved on and Lawrence Kasdan is nowhere to be seen in the credits so I guess that is one strike against it. Now we see the trailer and it is all ramped up, 300 style shots and fights and it all left me a little cold. I hate the use of music in this trailer, I think it need to be a little grander and a little less rock. We will discuss this trailer and this remake on this weeks Geek Actually Podcast (ep 60).

According to the IMDB listing, the synopsis (for those who have not seen the original) is:

A remake of the 1981 film version of the myth of Perseus and his quest to battle both Medusa and the Kraken monster in order to save the Princess Andromeda.

‘Clash of the Titans’ is directed by Louis Leterrier and stars Sam Worthington, Gemma Arterton, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Nicholas Hoult, Alexa Davalos, Danny Huston, Pete Postlethwaite and Polly Walker. It is scheduled to be released on the 1st of April 2010 (but that could be a joke!)
