Three new high-resolution images from the upcoming sequel Wrath of the Titans have been released. The story finds Sam Worthington’s Perseus tasked with rescuing Zeus (Liam Neeson) from the depths of the underworld. Ralph Fiennes returns as Hades, and the action-factor is upped this time around as the Titans unleash hell on Earth. The new images aren’t incredibly revealing, but we do get a good look at Rosamund Pike being an all-around badass. I wasn’t over the moon about Clash of the Titans, but the trailer for Jonathan Liebesman’s follow-up definitely piqued my interest. Worthington recently expressed his satisfaction with the end result to Steve, saying that Liebesman took a more realistic approach to the world in the vein of Ridley Scott.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Bill Nighy, Danny Huston, and Edgar Ramirez. Wrath of the Titans opens in 3D on March 30th.
Here’s the synopsis for Wrath of the Titans:
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.
