from the cgchannel article:
Clash of the Titans was one of the simpler pleasures of 2010. Uniting virtually the whole of London’s VFX community in its shared love of the Ray Harryhausen original, Warner Bros’ sword-and-sandals epic provided perfect popcorn-friendly holiday fare, and grossed almost $500 million worldwide. Its sequel, Wrath of the Titans, released last week, attempts to repeat the magic, re-teaming production VFX Supervisor Nick Davis with effects houses Framestore, MPC and Nvizible – and bringing in a touch of new blood in the shape of Method Studios, featured below, and The Senate Visual Effects, which contributed over 80 invisible FX shots.
The plot, such as it is
A decade after his defeat of the Kraken, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year-old son, Helius. But Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Ares (Edgar Ramirez) make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus (Liam Neeson). The Titans’ strength grows as Zeus’s remaining godly powers are siphoned and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son Agenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind. You know, everyday superhero stuff.
Framestore’s work neatly illustrates the appeal of the Titans movies: fantastic creatures, set in equally fantastical environments. The studio completed 300 shots for the film, in two key sequences: the first, an encounter between Perseus’s group and a trio of Cyclops, and the second, the group’s assault on The Labyrinth – the towering maze which provides access to Tartarus, where Zeus is imprisoned.
