Worthington on 'Clash of the Titans'

Courtesy of The Playlist, I think we can all lower our expectations for Louis Letterier's Clash of the Titans (Warner Bros., 04.02.10), seeing as how its star Sam Worthington already has:

"I think this whole movie is pretty ridiculous. It's the fun of it. We're running around with rubber swords and rubber shields with a guy made of wood, jumping out of scorpions covered in goo. I think the whole point of the movie is it's meant to be fun and bombastic, and to take people...I call it a Saturday morning popcorn movie your Dad would have seen."
Of course Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman hated Casablanca, but this doesn't sound too good. Even stars of the films they're in aren't dumb enough to call it "ridiculous" or "Saturday morning cartoon" before it even comes out.

Especially after Warner Bros. made headlines by desperately converting the film from 2D to 3D just two months before its release, even pushing the release date back to get it done.


  1. I can't imagine WB will be happy with that.

  2. Well, he's not saying its "bad," but anyone with half a brain can read between the lines and decipher that Worthington isn't all that into it.

    This whole film is kind of consumed in a hazardous aroma of stink. I just have a really bad feeling about it, which is a shame because at one point I was really looking forward to it.
