Must Watch: Two Brand New TV Spots for Clash of the Titans

I know we've already seen a lot from Clash of the Titans, but these new TV spots (via TheMovieBox) are fantastic. I first saw them while watching the Olympics tonight and was thoroughly impressed. They finally do away with the rock music and just go with some intense drum beats to get everyone excited. I still think this looks great and I can't wait to see it. Check out that scene in the first TV spot below with Perseus (Sam Worthington) meeting Pegasus for the first time - it's very similar to the scene from the original. I feel like they've paid the original version a true homage with this. I guess we'll find out how true in about a month!
Watch the first new TV spot for Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans:
Watch the second new TV spot for Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans:
Follows Perseus and his quest to battle Medusa and the Kraken in order to save the Princess Andromeda.
Clash of the Titans is directed by French filmmaker Louis Leterrier, of Unleashed, Transporter 2, and The Incredible Hulk previously. The screenplay was originally written by Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark) then later revised by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi (both of Crazy/Beautiful, The Tuxedo, Aeon Flux). This is a remake of Desmond Davis' original 1981 classic movie of the same name. Warner Brothers will be bringing Clash of the Titans to regular 2D and 3D theaters everywhere starting on April 2nd. Still excited?
This look awesome, I never thought I would be excited about this movie but now I am.

Wow that first one was epic...but every time I hear that cheesy voiced "IN 3D" it just pisses me off for some reason. They might as well say "FOR MORE MONEY IN 3D!" but as is everything I suppose.

Super excited! but, I will only see this in 2d.

"The heaven raise hell"! Cool. I'm so excited! Feels like April 2nd is next year.

Why am I just not that excited for this?

Best so far.. The metal music was cheezy in the trailers. The "IN 3D" irritated me as well. You gotta love the "hey, look what it did for avatar" attitude. I'm so not looking forward to the long line of movies that have 3D forced upon them.

This movie is really piecing together , Totally stoked to see it!

It looks crap - sorry to say it, but there is very little to admire from these clips. It looks like recycled garbage.

looks good, but i'm looking forward to "centurion" and "robin hood" more.

Please let this be good!

As cool as this looks, I'm just underwhelmed after seeing God of War III footage.
James on Feb 27, 2010
why is Pegasus black? i would be excited but the more i see it looks like a crappy teenage boy movie. Ill still see it in 2D cause im a huge fan of the original... But i agree with 9 im looking forward to "Robin Hood" much much more!

it looks pretty good, maybe a little too stylized, but the main thang that stood out to me is the fact that Worthington is almost talking full australian there, that will be distracting I think, he did it in avatar a little as well
Scott McHenry on Feb 27, 2010
This will satisfy me until Robin Hood, and Cody every time I hear "in 3-D" it takes me out of the moment, ugh it's terrible!

It won't be deep or thought-provoking, but it will be two hours of pure action, entertainment and special effects! Probably worth seeing once.

Finally a trailer without the crappy WWf soundtrack. I saw the original in the theater when I was ten years old and loved it so I cant wait to see the remake.

As much as God of War rips off of Greek mythology and such, they could of at least left "the end begins" catch line out 🙂

I had no idea this was written by Lawrence Kasdan, one of the greatest screenplay writers of all time. Why in the world would they revise it, especially with writers with credentials like those? Were they trying to dumb down the movie so that Leterrier could focus more on SFX? The first trailers made the movie look okay, maybe even good. These new TV spots (without the rock music and a focus more on Perseus' story, rather than action) make the movie look good, maybe even pretty good, but still not great.

Showing the Kraken in trailers shows too much. Everything else looks great.

Only thing that bothers me is Worthington and his lack of hair. I love that even other characters look the part but no one then shaved their heads like military man.

I think it looks awesome, in the literal definition of the word. Coppola or Scorcese it ain't - but how can possibly top Liam Neesen's:"RELEASE. THE KRAKEN." @23 - because, as we all know, everything else about this movie screams 'historical accuracy'. It's fun! Jump in. Pop the popcorn & line up w/ the kiddies for "Adventure Time".

That "in 3D" thing just kind of kills it, but super excited and seeing it in good old, cheaper than paying an extra 3 bucks, 2D

I can't believe no one likes the theatrical trailer with the amazing guitars! Look, I know it's kind of simplistic but I think that is the most effective trailer of the year so far. The action (in the trailer) is non-stop and even the clever editing with the epic sounding rock guitars syncing up to the giant scorpion smashing the ground?! That's exactly how you get people to come see a movie like this. I was previously unaware of the storyline, but now with these trailers I'm interested in that too. I hope this movie rocks...
