One final featurette has now made its way online via Apple, introducing Kronos, King of the Titans, lauded here as the Destroyer of the Universe.
“Kronos proved his appetite for destruction at a young age, when his mother Gaia tried to convince him and his brothers to murder their father, Uranus. The only one willing to do the deed, Kronos castrated his father and killed him, and assumed the throne as leader of the Titans.Destined to suffer a similar fate that befell his father, Kronos was overthrown by his sons Zeus, Hades and Poseidon, who left him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, the nightmarish dungeon that lies deep within the underworld. But Kronos is gaining power as the gods lose theirs, dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion. The gargantuan Titan is on the verge of breaking free from Tartarus and unleashing hell on earth…”
The special effects that we’ve been seeing from these featurettes in particular have been undeniably impressive, and the shot of Sam Worthington soaring through the flames and lava in this introduction to Kronos looks awesome.
Along with Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, and Danny Huston will also reprise their roles from the original Clash of the Titans, and Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Édgar Ramirez, and Bill Nighy are joining them for this second time around.
Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) has gone behind the camera for the sequel, with a script co-written by David Johnson (TV’s The Walking Dead) and Dan Mazeau (who makes his debut, and has since been set to write the live-action Bleach adaptation).
Wrath of the Titans will be released tomorrow, 30th March, in 3D and IMAX 3D. If you’re looking for a new epic action-blockbuster to see on the big screen this weekend, it looks like this could be your first port of call.
