I am one of the privilaged few who didnt bother wasting there money to go see Louis Leterrier‘s Clash Of The Titans remake a iconic movie within my childhood been one of the first known movies I watched at the cinema. Well I had a reason other than the poor reviews I was actually in greece working and when a star of a pecific movie comes out and says a movie he or she was one was actually bad its due respect to that person for admitting it, it takes guts to come public and Sam Worthington has done that.
2010 did wonders for the Australians career with Avatar after a rough ride in Terminator Salvation which honestly now looking back at 2010, the 2009 movie wasnt that bad (maybe give it 3/5 now after this poor year) and now hes getting ready to shoot for Wrath of Titans now with Jonathan Liebsman at the helm (to be released March 2012). So Worthington was speaking to Moviefone over the weekend on the set of his current project Man On The Ledge he admits movie one could have been better and this movie the fans will enjoy.
I just think we can improve on it. I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. And yeah, I totally agree. The only point of doing a sequel is either the audience demands it or you believe you can better the first one. What we’re setting out to do with this one — the writers and the director and myself — is improve. I think I can act fucking better, to be honest … Just take all the notes from people that I have been reading about on the ‘net and give them a movie they fucking want. This one I want to kind of try to satisfy a lot more people.
I’ve always said you make movies for an audience, that’s who you make movies for. If the audience is speaking, it’s like the old gladiator thing, they give us the thumbs up/thumbs down, you want to stay alive in that coliseum as long as you can.
As for movie career Sam Worthington is fairly new kid on the block first starting on television and many experienced screen actors know they have done the odd bad movie in their career but they dont publically admit it was bad several months after themovie came out some keep it to them selves or say something several years down the line like Mark Whalberg did with The Happening. You could say he’s not Shia LaBeouf whose made a career of appearing in many flops like Transformers 2, Indiana Jone: The Crystal Skull,etc…
If you do one movie and its a flop at the box office but a follow up is on the cards its obivious an actor will say the new movie willbe better, its one of the points apparently of making several sequels along with the story actually needing more than one movie. So I ask if a movie is a flop does fan reactions really matter to filmmakers? Obiviously not with Clash of The Titans its seem qaunity is more valuable than qaulity which is a risky business, so what do you think guys? Can Wrath of Titans be any better? Let us know with your thoughts below….
