Advert Break – Clash Of The Titans – Out On DVD and Blu-ray 26th July 2010

I loved the trailers for Clash of the Titans despite being against remaking this film. I’m still of the school of thought that there’s a lot of great fantasy stories out there to be told rather than just remaking stuff.  The strange thing was as time passed I was worn over by the trailers and then promptly never got a chance to see the film. I then started hearing from mates who had seen the film and were far from impressed with the 3D aspect of the film and more.

I still plan on checking out the film on Blu-Ray as I make my own mind up about these things.

In the meantime here’s the blurb on the DVD and Blu-ray release.

Available on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on 26 July 2010

“Jaw-dropping effects and memorable set pieces keep the action coming thick and fast.” HEAT

“Clash of the Titans is a full-blown fantasy action flick that is a feast of stunning special effects” SUNDAY MIRROR

“Action winner” THE PEOPLE

Get ready to be blown off your seat when Clash of the Titans releases the Kraken on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on 26 July from Warner Home Video.  Relive the colossal battle between men and the gods as this epic tale takes you on a non-stop, jaw-dropping adventure.  With spectacular CGI effects and heart pounding action, this is a DVD must-have!

Directed by the acclaimed Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Transporter 2), Clash of the Titans’ all-star cast includes Sam Worthington (AvatarTerminator Salvation), Liam Neeson (Taken, Schindler’s List), Ralph Fiennes (the Harry Potter films, The Hurt Locker) and Gemma Arterton (Prince of PersiaQuantum of Solace).

In the ultimate struggle for power, men are pitted against kings and kings against gods. However, it’s the war between the gods themselves that could destroy the world.  Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Fiennes), the vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.
