Wrath Of The Titans

The 2009 trailer for Clash Of The Titans and its instant meme-generating “Release the Kraken!” tagline has arguably outlasted the mostly forgettable movie they were attached to, living on in CafePress T-shirts long after most people remembered what a Kraken was or why someone should release it. The trailer for its sequel takes no chances on that happening again: It’s a deathly serious affair, mostly eschewing dialogue, concentrating almost entirely on wowing with effects shots and screaming, pissed-off monsters, and its sole frivolous allowance being the demigod Perseus’ fluffy new demi-mullet. In fact, in case you forget how serious and totally wrathful Wrath is, allow the grimly gothic trudge of Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams” cover to remind you.
