Clash of the Titans Figures: Perseus x 2

Currently seen in blue in James Cameron’s AVATAR and already boasting a Terminator film under his belt, Sam Worthington seems poised to take Hollywood by storm as its newest action hero. Next up is his role as Perseus in the big-budget, high-octane remake of The Clash of the Titans. The movie also stars Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes and Gemma Arterton. In fact, here’s a look at the trailer for no reason but that I will do anything to watch it. It looks AWESOME. Despite being a huge fan of the original myths, this is one massively inaccurate blockbuster I can’t wait to see.

COME ON.

But getting back to the point, we’ve got some new toys on the way from NECA. Here’s a peek, but it’s only a prototype and, as the picture suggests, we canexpect a better look at the finished item soon. There are only two on their way, both shipping in March, and one is normal Perseus while the other is battle-damaged. I’m personally disappointed we aren’t seeing any other figures, but here’s hoping that the movie’s likely success gets NECA working on the rest of the cast!


Titans Will Clash: The Clash of the Titans Trailer!

The Clash of the Titans remake is still a long way off–it’ll be released in March 2010 and while I’ve no doubt it’ll pull some huge numbers, it remains to be seen whether it will live up to the 1981 classic.

The remake stars Sam Worthington, last seeing in Terminator: Salvation alongside Christian Bale. He takes on the role of the Pegasus-riding hero Perseus, who finds himself in the middle of warring gods–and brothers–Zeus and Hades, played by Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes respectively. Leading lady Gemma Arterton portrays Andromeda in what will be her first of two epics of 2010, the other being the video game based Prince of Persia with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Little is being said about the intricacies of the Titans plot, but I think that the tagline, ‘Titans Will Clash’ provides an admittedly simplistic but probably pretty decent summation of what we can expect.

And so, set to the Used’s Bird and the Worm, check out this trailer!
