30th of March isn’t that far away and Warner Bros. wants to make sure cinema goers would rush to see the upcoming sequel of the 2010 Clash Of The Titans movie (which got panned by people like me) when it opens in cinemas worldwide. The trick studios use to capture potential viewers is to release new images/trailers now & then and Warner Bros. is going the same way as the studio has just released the first poster of Ares (The god of War) played by Édgar Ramírez.
For those still in the dark concerning the synopsis of this sequel, you’re in luck as we’ve got just that for you.
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington) –the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)–is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
Oh yeah, this Ares “god Of War” has no relation to the development of a movie-adaptation of the popular Sony play-Station god Of War, thus lovers of that game franchise like myself will have to wait some more.
