Wrath Of The Titans The Raid

Need a kick in the ass this afternoon? Forget running down to Starbucks for a triple mocha whatever. Just turn up the speakers on your computer, close your inbox and fire up these two trailers. They will surely get your blood racing.

First up, with the movie now a month away from release, a new trailer has arrived for "Wrath Of The Titans," the (highly anticipated?) sequel to "Clash Of The Titans." And while the first movie was savaged critically and left audiences giving the pic a thumbs down for the hasty post-conversion to 3D, you gotta hand it to WB for having the stones to do it again. That said, the technology has moved forward since then, and judging by this trailer, 'Wrath' is going big or going home. No matter what, you're getting some bang for your buck. This time around Perseus (Sam Worthington) will go into the underworld to rescue Zeus (Liam Neeson), with Andromeda (Rosamund Pike) also along to kick some ass against some fearsome looking monsters. This arrives on March 30th.

Next, a fresh trailer for the huge foreign action film sensation "The Raid." And yeah, this thing looks fucking badass. Now confusingly titled "The Raid: Redemption" for some reason (what, is it a sequel now?) this new spot for the Gareth Evans-directed film does a good job of presenting the movie as what it is: 30 Floors Of Chaos. We called the film "a triumph of kicks, punches and unrelenting thrills" when we saw it at Sundance. See if you agree when it hits on March 23rd.
