It’s true, the Clash of the Titans remake was boring. The film felt pedestrian. Overall, there was no concern for the characters. They were simply going through the motions. Sam Wothington’s Perseus was ultimately unremarkable. So it’s a little of a surprise that a sequel is underway entitled Wrath of the Titans.

I was pessimistic about a sequel, but Sam Worthington had some choice words about the prior film and what he sets out to do with this one that caught my eye.

“I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. And yeah, I totally agree. The only point of doing a sequel is either the audience demands it or you believe you can better the first one. What we’re setting out to do with this one — the writers and the director and myself — is improve. I think I can act f***ing better, to be honest … Just take all the notes from people that I have been reading about on the ‘net and give them a movie they f***ing want. This one I want to kind of try to satisfy a lot more people.”

The fact that an actor is taking online criticism to heart and intends to use it to improve his craft is admirable. Worthington’s intentions piqued my interest in Wrath of the Titans.

“I’ve always said you make movies for an audience, that’s who you make movies for. If the audience is speaking, it’s like the old gladiator thing, they give us the thumbs up/thumbs down, you want to stay alive in that coliseum as long as you can.”
