Underworld Awakening (dir. Mans Marlind, Bjorn Stein)
Directed by: Jonathan Liebesman
Rating: Not Yet Rated
Release Date: May 30, 2012
Trailer Score: 6/10
Thoughts by Tsr: Boy, the marketing people for these films are really outdoing themselves. I’ll never figure out how they came up with something as imaginative as “Titans Will Clash” as the tagline for Clash of the Titans, and now they’ve went above and beyond with “Feel The Wrath.”
Okay, maybe I’m being hard on them. And yes, I realize that is a relatively minor thing to be picking on. To be perfectly honest, other than a terrible version of “Sweet Dreams” and a general music video-esque feel to how the trailer is put together, I think what’s here is decent. Granted, I didn’t hate the trailer for Clash of the Titans either, but a tolerable trailer is as good a place as any to begin. »

From superhero flicks "The Avengers," "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight Rises" to sequels "Men in Black III" and "Wrath of the Titans" to book adaptations "The Hunger Games" and "The Hobbit," 2012 is shaping up to be an exciting year at the movies.
Here's a preview!
2012 Movie Preview'Chronicle' (Feb. 3)
March and April have quickly become more and more populated. It seems like all the rejected summer blockbusters flock to these two months, hoping the lack of competition will garner them box office glory. Well it doesn't always work, you can't deny that there is money to be made during these two months. And, evident from today's Prelude to 2012, studios want as much money as they can squeeze from these two months. Hit the jump for full details on over 25 films hoping to make an impact in the limbo between Summer and the beginning of the year. Who knows...you may just find something you'll like.
March has always been a busy time for film. In fact, I would say that the year doesn't truly kick off Until this month. Yeah, there's a couple notable releases in January and February (as shown here), but March is when the first blockbusters »

After debuting as a low-res magazine scan earlier this month, here’s a new hi-res look at Sam Worthington as Perseus in Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to the 2009 movie Clash of the Titans which, despite a critical mauling, still took a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. The sequel, which also stars Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramirez and Bill Nighy, is released in the UK on 30th March 2012.
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus—the demigod son of Zeus—is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius.
Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, »
We're still catching up on all that the recent bout of holiday madness caused us to miss. Speaking of which, did you know there was a Wrath of the Titans trailer? Because there is.
Wrath of the Titans is the sequel to Clash of the Titans, which was the remake of Clash of the Titans…wait, is that…yeah. That's right. It seems the Titans are getting fed up with their forced vacation in the Underworld — apparently it's not as nice as the brochures make it seem — and they'd very much like to return to their comfy Greek villas if that's okay.
Naturally, it's not okay with their children, the Gods, who are enjoying some freedom. The Gods are busy doing the things kids do when their parents are out of town, like sneaking out the car and singing Bob Seger songs in their underwear.
So, to ensure the Titans »

I'm writing to you this afternoon in the late stages of a full-on nostalgia buzz. The reason? Last night, I had the pleasure of taking in a performance of the Beauty and the Beast musical at St. Louis' beautiful The Fabulous Fox theatre. Thanks to Belle's "Little Town", "Something There", and the Academy Award-winning title track, I'm still giddy and in complete tune with my five-year old self nearly 24 hours after the fact. Now, if I could just get my hands on that old Proton Pack I used to lug around at all times, my return trip to the '90s would be complete... ...In this week's "Top 5" you'll find a collection of items from The Dark Knight Rises, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo interviews with David Fincher, Rooney Mara, and Daniel Craig, tidbits of news from J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel, director Brad Bird talking about Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, »

A Japanese trailer for Peter Berg's Battleship has popped up online and just skimming through it looking for a couple of screen captures it looks like it is exactly the same kind of film as Transformers only this is an extraordinarily loose adaptation of a board game (which makes me feel stupid just writing) and doesn't have any matter of built-in audience. Starring Taylor Kitsch, Tom Arnold, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Hamish Linklater, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson and Josh Pence, Battleship is set to hit theaters on May 18, 2012 and of the twenty films I included in a recent poll asking readers "If You Could See One of These 20 Upcoming 2012 Releases Today, which One Would It Be?" Battleship is second to last with only five votes, just ahead of the three earned by Wrath of the Titans. Give this new trailer a watch and tell me if it makes you more »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? [Rec]³ Génesis Trailer This is the kind of trailer that gets me all jolly. Director/writer Paco Plaza has found a niche that works, and has worked for a few films. »

I've now been working for Cinema Blend for more than two years and I can honestly say that I've never seen a week like this before. While the year is winding down in preparation for both Christmas and New Years celebrations, Hollywood has been pumping out trailers non-stop. Since Monday we've seen trailers for 21 Jump Street, The Dark Knight Rises, Wrath of the Titans, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Goon, Prometheus and Bel Ami. But if you think that means we're slowing down, you've got another thing coming. The newest trailer for Underworld: Awakening has been sent over to us via Screen Gems. Check it out below! Marking Kate Beckinsale's return to the franchise, Underworld: Awakening sees Selene enter a world at war. The humans have discovered the existence of both vampires and lycans and have begun a full-on assault to eradicate them all. It is left »
