I have to admit, I just finished watching Clash of the Titans all the way through for the first time. Yes, if any movie ever truly needed to be remade, it's probably this. An amazing story with the most laughably bad CG ever (though I don't blame it for it one bit, the time period and all). But to remake it like this just seems one of the biggest atrocities. What happened to the epic fantasy film? Why now do they have to be this short shot heavy metal ZOMG fests that we've come to see with 300, Beowulf, etc.? It's not that fantasy films don't happen anymore (Lord of the Rings), but, if you're going to remake what was at its heart an epic quest film, this, or at least the trailer, looks like it's doing the original film a great injustice

I'll assume by CG, you meant "claymation graphics"

Yeah, I just used the term CG to mean anything that was a special effect, such as the awful green screening...Poseidon opening the gate to the Kraken was almost too hilarious.

Slight hijack, but I really wanted to like 300, and I did like bits of it, but for fuck's sake all the choreographed stylistic fight scenes, it was like 300 on ice or something. If this is like that it will really suck.

300 can be entertaining if you turn off your brain to the point of borderline retardation. I enjoy it for what it is, which is total fluff. The story is way too linear, but I guess thats what happens when you adapt so closely from a comic book of that nature. Some of the effects were horrible too though. Like the hunchback makeup. What the fuck was that?? it looked liked the dude was wearing a rubber mask. I assume the phrase "dont worry, we'll fix it in post" was thrown around quite a bit during the making of that film. Only they didnt fix it

Plus, Liam Neeson as Zeus? Holy shit.

Agreed, and the trailer shows its scope is far bigger than I would have thought given a March release and the scope of Letterier's previous projects.

Watchmen got a March release after 300 was a huge hit, so here's Take 2, I guess.

March is the new May, yo.

OK, not really. But I'm glad studios are becoming more willing to spread out the love a bit more these days at least.

Hell, we got Taken in January and that did extremely well. Not flooding theaters with every major release that looks worthwhile in May/June/July and November/December could be a good idea.

Funny thing. Release movies that people might want to see in any time of the year and people will go see them. WHAT MAD IDEAS WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT?

Did Shutter Island get pushed back until February or Summer? I have a feeling it would do pretty well in Febs.

I was skeptical about wolfman until I saw the newest trailer. It actually looks good
