They Don't Make Scorpions Like That Anymore

Nothing says Armistice Day like a new trailer for beautifully mindless action.

Clash of the Titans, the cheesetastic 1981 fantasy film embedded deep in brains of legions of eighties kids, and reviewed here by our own Ranylt Richildis, is getting the big budget remake treatment like everything else from our hallowed childhoods. And it looks enormously more entertaining than it has any right to be. Enormous scorpions, vile monsters, vistas of desert and sea. Liam Neeson as a golden armored Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, and a dirty sweaty Sam Worthington as Perseus.

The story is simple and presumably largely irrelevant: a war rages between the gods and only your run of the mill son-of-a-god-but-raised-by-men hero Perseus can prevent hell on Earth. The film is slated for a March release next year, the new trailer is below.
