I think when we first saw images of Liam Neeson as Zeus from the set of the movie, very few of us were impressed...
...but I think we can agree that Neeson's delivery of "RELEASE THE KRAKEN" is a classic.
That said, the REAL joke in today's comic is the Craklin Oat Bran in the third panel. Man, what a great cereal. So much fiber. I'm pooping myself just thinking about it!
I didn't get a chance to see Clash of the Titans like I thought I would this weekend and that doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. I was looking forward to a bit of dumb cinema until I realized that lining up for that kind of abuse was, well, also dumb.
That didn't seem to stop most people, though. Clash of the Titans made over $60 million at the box office this weekend.
Usually when a film makes that much in it's first weekend, people start talking about filming a sequel. But I was momentarily emboldened when I thought to myself "Mythology doesn't have a sequel does it?"
Not so fast. Director Louis Leterrier recently said that he envisioned a TRILOGY of films and Clash of the Titans writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi confirmed it. So be on the lookout for that one, I suppose.
I don't have much more to say about the film, but I'm curious if anyone here saw it. If so, what did you think? Did anyone see it in 3D? Reportedly, the 3D effects are horrendous. I'd like to know if it's as bad as the critics say it is. Leave your comments below.
In the meantime, I'm getting ready for C2E2 next week in Chicago. I've been working on a new booth banner and some exclusive merchandise. If you follow Theater Hopper on Facebook, I'll be posting some images soon. Including a series of 1" badges I'll be selling as well as artwork from an exclusive print I hope to sell at the show as well.
That's all for me. Thanks for swinging by and have a great day!
