The first official photo of Sam Worthington as Perseus in Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans remake has been discovered. One of our readers sent in this photo scanned from the latest issue of Empire magazine. We've seen some photos previously, but they were distant paparazzi shots, not completely stylized like this. As our first real look at anything from this remake, I've got to say, this looks badass! It's gritty, it's dark, it's a huge step up from the original 1981 movie, and I love everything about the photo. This is definitely the first sign that Louis Leterrier is taking this new Clash of the Titans in the right direction!
Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny. Louis Leterrier is directing from a script by Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark).
