Sweet dreams are made of this. Who are we to disagree? Not quite two years ago, the Clash Of The Titans remake opened to colossal box office, and immediately became a notorious watchword in how to cock up a 3D post-conversion and thoroughly annoy an audience. But now here's a spanking new trailer for sequel Wrath Of The Titans, and it looks as if all might potentially be forgiven. brightcove.createExperiences();Same territory as before, of course. Major battles with a host of CGI beasts in the offing, but, on first inspection, the design work this time doesn't look quite so much as if it's come about by having someone crane over Guillermo Del Toro's shoulder to look at his sketchbook. Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: La) is the director, taking over from Louis Leterrier, and it does look as if he's delivered the grittier take on the material he promised a few months ago. »
Feel the Wrath! Warner Bros has finally unveiled the first official trailer via Apple for Jonathan Liebesman's Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to the 2009 remake of Clash of the Titans. Sam Worthington returns as Perseus to fight some more Gods and mythical creatures of all sizes, both monstrous and gigantic. This trailer definitely makes this look a lot more action-packed, way more intense throughout, almost something else entirely from Louis Leterrier's remake, which is awesome to see. That moment where that huge stone building slides past them looks amazing and I'm not even sure what's going on. I'm impressed, give it a shot! Watch the first trailer for Jonathan Liebesman's Wrath of the Titans, via Apple: You can also download the Wrath of the Titans trailer in High Def over on Apple As originally mentioned in the first look: "The trident is but one of several »

The first trailer for Wrath of the Titans has gone online. I was disappointed by Clash of the Titans, but the trailer has somewhat restored my interest in the sequel. Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) has taken the reigns from Louis Leterrier and obviously the action scenes are bigger because that's what sequels do. But I was taken with the imaginative design for the sets and the creatures. Presumably the 3D will be much better this time around since it's not a post-converstion. But the larger question remains: Is the script any better? Here's hoping. [Correction: It is a post-conversion. I was under the impression the filmmakers didn't want to do something so blatantly stupid.] Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramiez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell, and Rosamund Pike. Wrath of the Titans opens March 30, 2012. [Update: A couple of crazy banners a new image have been released, which are now included after the jump.] Click over to Apple to watch the trailer in HD. Here's the official synopsis for Wrath of the Titans »

There hasn’t been much to report on Fox’s attempts to reboot the Daredevil franchise since the potential new movie was announced back in March but director David Slade has offered us an update via his Twitter, letting us known a first draft of the script has been completed and we can expect to hear more in the New Year. Presumably then if the script is to the studio’s liking (though Slade does say it needs more work) it could begin filming next year for a 2013 or 2014 release.
That draft comes from Fringe writer Brad Caleb Kane and back in March we heard he was tasked with writing a ‘continuation’ of the franchise that began with an extremely mediocre 2003 film starring Ben Affleck. Though despite the ‘continuation’ label, we were told the new script won’t have anything to do with the previous film that’s now nearly a decade old. »

After generating a lot of appeal at Comic-Con in 2010, Daniel LuVisi‘s graphic novel Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter is finally making its way to the big screen. ShowBlitz tells us that Paramount has hired Orphan writer David Leslie Johnson to write the adaptation.
As ShowBlitz informs us, the original comic followed “an invincible soldier created to help Earth win a war against Mars, who’s “framed for a heinous crime by a terrorist organization and, after a nine-year prison sentence, escapes to even the score.” Sounds like there’s plenty of room for entertainment and world-building, staples that many filmmakers have tried — and many filmmakers have failed — to implement in their sci-fi projects as of late.

"I am Perseus!" When I first saw this photo, I hesitated posting it, just because of how amusing it was. But then I realized we haven't seen a single image from this yet, for better or worse, and this is indeed our very first look. Scanned via Collider from Entertainment Weekly, here's our first look at Sam Worthington as Perseus in Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans 3D remake, this time directed by Jonathan Liebesman of Battle: La. The shot is of Worthington grabbing two tridents, while looking angry, and it's funnier than it is badass. The quote is good, too: "that's probably a massive spoiler." Here is the photo in all its glory. Hope we see more soon, this is supposed to be out in about four months. Which spoiler? It's not really, but from the lower left: "The trident is »

Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to 2010's Clash of the Titans, has a lot of "new" going for it. Director Jonathan Liebesman has taken over for Louis Leterrier. Unlike the first, which was written by Travis Beacham, Phil Hay, and Matt Manfredi, the sequel was scripted by Dan Mazeau, David Johnson, and Steven Knight. Hell, Rosamund Pike has even come in to replace Alexa Davalos as Andromeda. But while the personnel behind the film may have changed, we can likely expect that the aesthetics will stay largely the same. Need proof? Check out the first look at the film and tell me if you can honestly differentiate the image from any in the first movie. Entertainment Weekly has run the first image from their film and you can check it out below. To see it full size, head over to The Playlist. I will admit that one thing that »
Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, Immortals These days, it doesn't take much to easily top the North American box office. But then again, if money is scarce — like it is for the 99% — and you have the choice between watching Adam Sandler in drag and a semi-naked Henry Cavill, who would you — regardless of your gender/sexual orientation — rather go see? Toplining Henry Cavill's pecs, abs, and legs, Tarsem Singh's Immortals grossed more than expected last week, though less than expected yesterday: as per studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, the period fantasy adventure collected $32 million (including $1.4 million from Thursday midnight showings). Last week, many pundits were predicting a $25 million or so opening; yesterday, there was hope Singh's movie might reach as high as $38 million. Why didn't it? Well, Immortals was down 32% on Saturday — 25% after deducting Thursday midnight figures — and is expected to be down 33% today. The Sunday downturn »

Henry Cavill, Immortals Starring Henry Cavill, Tarsem Singh's Immortals grossed more than early estimates published last night: new official studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo has the film pegged at $15 million on Veteran's Day Friday (including $1.4 million from Thursday midnight showings), which indicates the period fantasy adventure may bring in as much as $38 million over the weekend. That would be about $12 million above what "tracking" had indicated. For comparison's sake: Zack Snyder's 300, which also featured lots of muscular legs and chests, took in $70.88m (approx. $82m today) on its debut weekend in early March 2007. (Coincidentally, Snyder is directing Man of Steel, which stars Cavill as Superman.) And unlike 300, Immortals has the advantage of 3D surcharges; 70% of the 3,112 theaters showing the film are doing so in 3D. Also, Louis Leterrier's 3D epic fantasy Clash of Titans, featuring Avatar's Sam Worthington, collected $61.23m on opening weekend (approx. »

The upcoming magician-heist thriller, Now You See Me, is almost definitely going to be one of the coolest and most awesome films we’ll be getting in 2013. It’s ridiculously brilliant cast includes Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Mélanie Laurent, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, and good old Michael Caine.
The first promo poster and full synopsis for the film have just gone up over at Collider, and they are both pretty damn awesome. I’m loving the look of this promo poster. Whoever designed it knows their stuff, and is clearly talented; they got the cool vibe just right.
“The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech magic shows, first astonishing audiences by robbing a bank on another continent, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts.

As the American Film Market goes on, we see a lot of synopsis and sales art releases for upcoming films. A lot of times these aren't all that illuminating, because the synopsis info just rehashes what we already know, and the sales art is created before anything is ever shot, so at best it can only get across the most basic idea of the film. (Comepare, for example, the sales art  for Drive to the final posters .) But Louis Leterrier has a movie shooting early next year called Now You See Me that might be worth highlighting once more. I'm interested in the film because it represents a break from the movies Leterrier has done in the past (The Transporter, The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans) and in part because it has a pretty impressive cast led by Mark Ruffalo and Jesse Eisenberg. The sales art out of Afm positions the film, »

Yes, the remake of Clash of the Titans was pretty terrible, and we've gotten some really big promises for its upcoming sequel, but we have to admit we're kind of surprised by this latest bit of news. A third film in the now franchise is already in the works.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers, which is in post-production with Legendary Pictures on Wrath of the Titans, is developing the next installment of the franchise which was inspired by the Greek myths, even though Wrath doesn’t open until March 30, 2012.
Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Wrath’s screenplay with Steven Knight and also share story credit with Greg Berlanti, have been enlisted to develop and write a treatment for the threequel, which would continue the adventures of Perseus, played by Sam Worthington.

And Now You Don't! Our friends at Collider have found early teaser art at Afm for Summit's in the works thriller Now You See Me, being directed by Louis Leterrier, who indeed directed The Transporter and Clash of the Titans, as the poster says, but also The Incredible Hulk. I love anything involving magicians and this is that awesome project about a group of illusionists who pull off bank heists during performances and rain the audiences with the money. It sounds particularly awesome and has a fantastic cast lead by Jesse Eisenberg, Melanie Laurent, Mark Ruffalo and Morgan Freeman. View the teaser art below! As seen, the cast for Now You See Me also includes Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Michael Caine. The screenplay is by Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt. Collider also has a full synopsis, specifying Eisenberg as the lead illusionist named Atlas, with Ruffalo playing »

Novelist Jm Barrie's Peter Pan was the boy who wouldn't grow up. He could fly and had various adventures on the island of Neverland.
He's never been portrayed as a serial killer - until now.
In new film Pan, a dark and rather perverse reimagining of the original children's classic, the character is a villain being hunted by police in the present-day USA.
Scripted by Benjamin Magid and directed by Ben Hibon, this crime thriller stars Aaron Eckhart (Two-Face in The Dark Knight; Battle Los Angeles) as Captain Hook, who is depicted as a detective tracking down the title character.
AnnaSophia Robb plays Wendy, a young girl who escapes from Pan and teams with the police to help catch him. »

Warner Bros. is hedging its bets with the Clash of the Titans series. The first film -- well, the first film in this current incarnation of the series -- was directed by Louis Leterrier and earned nearly half a billion dollars worldwide despite becoming a poster child for terrible post-converted 3D. That was enough to put another movie into production right quick. The sequel, Wrath of the Titans, is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and written by Dan Mazeau, David Leslie Johnson, and Steven Knight with story credit given to Greg Berlanti. Warners must be happy with how that sequel, now in post-production, is shaping up, because Mazeau and Johnson have been hired to write a provisional Clash of the Titans 3. THR  says the third movie would once again feature Sam Worthington as Perseus, and that Toby Kebbell, who appears in Wrath of the Titans as Agenor, could well have a »

Wrath Of The Titans isn’t even in theatres yet, but that hasn’t stopped Warner Bros giving the greenlight to a third installment, the second sequel to last year’s lukewarm Clash Of The Titans.
Warner Bros clearly have confidence in the Greek Myth-inspired series, having enlisted Wrath writers Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson to pen a threequel. It’s no surpise, however, considering that the Louis Leterrier-directed Clash – itself a remake – grossed $330 million worldwide. Wrath director Jonathan Liebesman would apprently consider returning for the third installment if the upcoming sequel is well received.

Dan Mazeau and David Johnson wrote Wrath of the Titans with Steven Knight, and shared a story credit with Greg Berlanti. Little is known about the story of Clash of the Titans 3, although insiders claim Toby Kebbell's Agenor, a sidekick to Sam Worthington's Perseus in Wrath of the Titans, may figure in heavily to the Clash of the Titans 3 story.
It is also believed that Wrath of the Titans director Jonathan Liebesman and producers Basil Iwanyk and Polly Cohen Johnsen will return for Clash of the Titans 3, although no deals have been worked out quite yet.
The 2010 adventure Clash of the Titans grossed nearly $500 million worldwide, which paved the way for Wrath of the Titans.

At first glance, it was surprising that Warner Bros. was even going ahead with a sequel to its 2010 action blockbuster Clash of the Titans. Louis Leterrier‘s Gods vs. warriors film was plagued by generally bad buzz and a hasty post-conversion that only deteriorated the experience. But with a worldwide box-office take of almost $500 million, a sequel was put into production rather quickly. Wrath of the Titans is indeed coming this March from Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman and now we have news on possible third film.
The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Dan Mazeau and David Johnson, co-writers on the upcoming 2012 film with Steven Knight, have been hired to write a treatment. No deals have been signed but the original producing team would be back, as would Liebesman. There is even word on a specific character we haven’t seen yet that could have a prominent word. Consider this a spoiler warning, »
