Wrath Of The Titans Trailer Is Ridiculous But What Did We Expect?

20 December 2011 3:04 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

From the sublime The Dark Knight Rises trailer comes the ridiculous with Warner Bros. unleashing the Wrath of the Titans trailer to us unexpectedly last night. There was no fanfare for this one, no teaser for a trailer or a viral campaign… just the releasing of the loud and thunderous trailer that gives us a certain deja vu feeling with the original film.

Certainly if you were a fan of the 2009 film, you will be in for a treat here. Just like the first trailer for the utterly horrific Clash of the Titans remake, the unwanted sequel is all crash, bang, wallop with plenty of CGI monsters and hammy dialogue and pre-school level plot specifics that don’t do any justice at all to the real intrigue and depth of these legendary stories. Nor does it live up to the fun of the Ray Harryhausen induced 80′s adaptation.

Last fall, we brought you news that the Comic-Con sensation, Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, had been snatched up by Paramount Pictures.

The story of Last Man Standing occurs 600 years into the future and follows an “invincible soldier created to help Earth win a war against Mars.

While Hollywood film execs were busy promoting their big tentpole films at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, they were also doing some digging to find that next big property that could be adapted into a popular franchise. One of their biggest finds was Last Man Standing, a unique graphic novel by Daneil LuVisi that had obvious potential as a multi-media enterprise – which is why Paramount beat other studios and snagged the rights to the property.

Today brings word that Last Man Standing is seeing some traction on the movie front, as a writer for the big-screen adaptation of LuVisi’s work has been found in the form of Orphan and Red Riding Hood writer, David Leslie Johnson.

‘Orphan’ Writer Adapting Futuristic Graphic Novel ‘Last Man Standing’

5 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Remember that awesome looking graphic novel called Last Man Standing we published all that artwork for in 2010? The one Paramount picked up to be made into a film before the book even hit the shelves? If not, click here for a refresher course [1] or just bask in the coolness of that header image. It took a while but Paramount has finally found their man to pen a screenplay based on the Daniel LuVisi graphic novel and it's David Leslie Johnson, the writer of Orphan, Red Riding Hood, Wrath of the Titans and The Walking Dead. Last Man Standing, which was published under Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle creator Kevin Eastman's Heavy Metal banner, is about a famous, genetically enhanced solider who is framed and endures nine years of hellacious incarceration before getting out and vowing revenge. It's also futuristic, violent science-fiction if the massive gun above didn't clue you off. »
