New York, NY – HitFix’s Drew McWeeny and Guy Lodge agree: “Wrath of the Titans” is the rare sequel that improves on the original source material. Were I to write a review, I’d also salute the improvements from 2010’s “Clash of the Titans.”
Last weekend, I sat down with director Jonathan Liebesman to discuss his approach to storytelling on the big budget sequel.
One of the particular goals for the “Battle Los Angeles” and “Darkness Falls” director, as you will hear, was overhauling the 3D, which was a much maligned afterthought on “Clash,” but became a central concern in planning and producing “Wrath.”
Liebesman also discusses finding the proper balance between spectacle and the father-son story at the center of “Wrath.”
And, finally, because it couldn’t go undiscussed, Liebesman talks about the “Ninja Turtles” movie he’s going to be directing down the road, a project that has generated quite a bit of controversy in recent weeks, at least in certain circles.
“Wrath of the Titans” is now in theaters.
