The latest issue of Empire Magazine looks to be chock-full of goodies. We’ve already brought you some covers and images from The Avengers, and now some new images from the upcoming sequel Wrath of the Titans have landed online. The follow-up to Clash of the Titans finds Sam Worthington’s Perseus tasked with rescuing a kidnapped Zeus (Liam Neeson) from Hades (Ralph Fiennes). The images here are actually pretty cool, and give me hope that Wrath might possibly be a healthy step up from the underwhelming Clash. We get a peek at a grotesque-looking Minotaur, Rosamund Pike as Andromeda, Edgar Ramirez as Ares, Danny Huston as Poseidon, and Fiennes as Hades.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Wrath of the Titans opens in 3D on March 30th.
Here’s the official 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.
