Clash of the Titans gets a second trailer.

For what this movie is trying to be, this new trailer looks kinda fantastic. You get real glimpses of Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, and the action is a little spectacular. The CGI creatures look more realistic than they probably will in a crystal-clear version of the trailer and/or the movie itself. The tagline 'Damn the Gods' is pretty stupid, but it's less on the nose than 'Titans Will Clash!". The hard-rock soundtrack is obvious pandering, but it's worth it for the absurd moment at 1:22 where the giant crab strikes his claw to the beat of the music. All in all, this looks like a gazillion-dollar remake of something that actually merited being remade in the first place. Point being, this looks like loads of stupid, guilt-inducing fun.

Hi Scott,

I've been following your blog for some time and have been really enjoying your analysis and discussion of films and the movie business.

The trailer no longer works. :( However, it's still available via a search on Google Video.

I'm really looking forward to this film and all it's stupid, guilt-inducing fun. :D I'm pretty excited with how well the Pegasus looks. Hopefully they'll come out with the "plot summary" trailer soon.
