It was only a matter of time til Hollywood got around to remaking the 1981 stop-motion classic, "Clash of the Titans." Starring a pre-Botox Harry Hamlin and fueled by maybe the last of the cheesy Ray Harryhausen-inspired creatures, this film adaption of the myth of Perseus and his quest to battle both Medusa and the Kraken monster to save the Princess Andromeda even seemed a bit dated in 1981 - remember, "Star Wars" and CGI-driven special effects were new to the game, but a step beyond the wave of the future at that point.
So now we get what appears to be a mashup of "300" and the inside of Guillermo del Toro's head. Which is not a bad thing. But to call this a remake does both movies a disservice. The original was from the vein of Saturday morning serials shown in theaters that no longer exist. While the 2010 version is made for a movie audience that demands more realism, if that's what you can call it, with every epic on the screen today.
Anyway, we only have the trailers to compare for the moment, so enjoy those titanic efforts until the expected March release date.
