Watching the trailers of director Louis Leterrier's 2010 remake of "Clash of the Titans" gives me goosebumps. The original 1981 fantasy classic has been an absolute childhood favourite, watched it a million times and still love every inch of it. There's no doubt that this film together with "Jason and the Argonauts" and the Sinbad adventures opened my mind and heart to the world of animation.

Back then we were talking about tedious 24 frames per second stop-motion animation which master animator Ray Harryhausen created with infinite brilliance. I've met the man himself during my school days in Oz. Very much retired and running a series of animation seminars. He packed along his 'toys'; clay figures of Medusa, Hydra, Kraken, Calibos, Skeletons... very rare opportunity to see the real thing up close and personal. Jimmy bought me a signatured "Jason and the Argonauts" movie poster (that I have yet to frame up), I stood in line to get my AWN cover signed and bought myself a Medusa animation festival T-shirt.

"Clash of the Titans" 2010 official trailer:

"Clash of the Titans" 2010 stars Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, a black Pegasus and a fast moving, but still deadly Medusa. In a way I was hoping that the Kraken (king of all beast) wasn't revealed in the trailers, but very glad that it looks darn fierce! I'm really excited for the movie scheduled to be released in April and available in 3D.

Watching the 80s trailer makes one realise how far animation has progress...
