First Real Photo of Sam Worthington in Clash of the Titans!

June 1, 2009

Clash of the Titans

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!

Sam Worthington in Clash of the Titans

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).

I can't really tell from the image but it looks like Sam is fighting some undead in Hedes

Seriously there better be the Krakken and Medusa in this movie, even back in the day the Medusa scene was a bit creepy, Louis needs to make Medusa the scariest bitch this side of Amy Winehouse



Awesome photo, I am super excited for this movie

not enough to sell me just yet...

(In a soft Hobbit-like voice) Oh Sam, I'm glad you're with me.

Looks gritty, I like it.

his sword looks like a stick

HellBoy on Jun 2, 2009


looks good but i wish it were storybook colorful and beautiful. oh well, we're in the age of gritty

This looks very cool - I like Louis Letterier a lot and his Hulk was underrated and deserved to do better. I think this Clash Of The Titans will be the closest thing to a God Of War movie.

#11 This is Sparta? Ehm, shut up! This is so different then 300, please... This looks great! Worthington is a fine actor, i'm looking forward to this film.

Jack on Jun 2, 2009


WTF are you talking about "a huge step up"?? Of course it is. The shitty shitty graphics in Wolverine are a huge step up from the original Clash. It was made almost 30 years ago. Clash is one of my favorite movies and I remember watching it countless times on TV growing up. This is just another shitty hollywood remake/reboot. I don't have much faith.

BADASS! Plain and Simple. Peace Out !

them days the people use to have long hair not a clipped two blade 1 lol its a joke only thing that looks realistic is his sword and shield. What you guys think?????

agentX on Jun 2, 2009


#18 its like he didn't have time to grow his hair from terminator LOL

agentX on Jun 2, 2009


#18 and #19 I agree, it just doesn't look right, hope it would distract us from looking at the sets of this movie. It would never top up the original movie, no remake movie can top it, it has been proven in the past and the future will behold the same destiny of film making in remakes.

LL Cool J on Jun 2, 2009


Can't wait.

Cat on Jun 2, 2009


Wow...a dark gritty picture that looks gritty because of noise from a crap on set camera or something. This definitely proves it'll be great and heading the right direction. What is wrong with you Alex? It's a freakin' picture of nothing and this means its 4 stars already? Then again Avatar hasn't released anything it it's suppose to be the #1 grossing film of all time with out a second release. *rolls eyes*

LSP on Jun 2, 2009


#7 Are you sure it's going to be PG-13? If so, that's a pretty big let down...

This was a huge childhood fave so I'm hoping for good things for my children & I but he looks cool. He might become the new male star to watch since he doesn't have too much franchise or movie baggage.

Johnny Neat on Jun 2, 2009


Looks great. What a pleasant surprise. Gritty and real. Wasn´t expecting much from a remake.

Peter on Jun 2, 2009


His swords looks a bit short and narrow, but it looks awesome, though =)

Robbie on Jun 2, 2009


I'm excited to see what Worthington has to offer as an actor. I think seeing him in Avatar is really going to set the tone for this movie. If he is horrid in that (which I don't see that happening) then It's going to lower my hype for Clash.

Curtis G on Jun 2, 2009


I still gotta see more to be convinced, but I have faith on Louis Leterrier's rawness. I definitely want to see Titans with enhanced visuals.

GTO on Jun 2, 2009


Sam Worthington was the best part of Terminator Salvation, IMHO. He really held his own opposite Christian Bale, and I think he'll do just fine with the lead in Avatar and in Titans, opposite Ralph Fiennes. And Fiennes as the god of the underworld -- can't wait to see that! He already possesses a snake-like look I can't get out of my head since we've seen him as Voldemort.

Lizerne Guiting on Jun 2, 2009


Worthington is a rising star for sure. I hope they kept the owl, & the Cracken in the retelling. (JK!). Looks cool. Also hope they don't try and take too much inspiration from 300 or something. Don't think they will, but stranger things seemed to have happened.

Mr j Money on Jun 2, 2009


After T:Salvation i believed that Sam is one of the best actors i have seen recently.I became a big fan for him. Outstanding performance,i just love the guy. This movie looks badass, I can't wait to see a teaser.

Fisherr on Jun 2, 2009


Great!! Sam Worthington along with Liam Neeson will rock!!! Sam did a great job in AVATAR and will kick ass in Clash of the Titans, love to see two great actors playing together in a great film!!
