Official: Clash of the Titans sequel titled Wrath of the Titans

Earlier this year Warner Brothers announced the sequel to its successful 2010 blockbuster “Clash of the Titans” would be called “Wrath of the Titans.” Problem was, at the time, the name was already trademarked by comic book publisher Bluewater Productions.

Bluewater, who had already published two comic book mini-series under that moniker, recently announced that an agreement was reached with the studio whereby the movie will carry the previously announced Wrath title in exchange for licensing rights to the name.

Wrath of the Titans is scheduled to hit conventional, 3D and IMAX theaters on March 30, 2012.

The complete press release is included after the jump.

Clash of the Titans and Journey to The Center of the Earth sequels in the works

Deadline is reporting that Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to Clash of the Titans, but Louis Leterrier will not return as director. Warner Brothers is shooting for the film to be released as early as spring 2012:

Sam Worthington will return, as well as most every other character that survived. Greg Berlanti will write the story and the studio is already canvassing the agencies for a writer and director who can whip the movie into shape  to shoot before Worthington makes Avatar 2. Leterrier will remain peripherally involved as executive producer. It isn’t unheard of for the original director of a big hit film to drop off the sequel–Doug Liman on The Bourne Identity comes to mind–and insiders swear that the Leterrier move was harmonious and are saying he wasn’t of a mind to rush into another installment of Greek mythological mayhem. The original has grossed around $390 million, on a $120 million budget with no real gross outlay. By the time it’s done, Clash will be one of the year’s biggest hits.

In related news, Deadline reports that New Line (part of Warner Brothers) and Walden Media are moving forward with a sequel to Journey to the Center of The Earth, however star Brendan Fraser not a lock:

Box Office Numbers for Friday, April 16, 2010: Disappointing debut for Kick-Ass ($7.7M); Death at a Funeral 2nd ($5.55M), Date Night 3rd ($5.5M) [UPDATE]

Update: Click over the jump for an updated chart with the final actual numbers.

Kick-Ass took 1st place on Friday, but came in at below expectations with an opening day of an estimated $7.6 million from 3,065 theaters. That will put the film at about $18-20 million for the weekend, a fair amount below initial expectations of between a $25-30 million. No matter how strong its critical praise was — currently standing at a solid 77% on Rotten Tomatoes — the film wasn’t able to overcome Lionsgate’s horrible marketing campaign. Of course it’s possible strong word of mouth will improve its numbers over the coming days and weeks, but that’s no guarantee.

Finishing in 2nd place for the day was Sony’s Death at a Funeral with a so-so estimated $5.6 million from 2,459 theaters. Date Night had a strong hold from last weekend, taking in an estimated $5.465 million on Friday ($37.412M cume). Date Night will battle with Death at a Funeral for 2nd place for the weekend (with each finishing with between $16-17.5M).

Rounding out the top five was How to Train Your Dragon in 4th place with an estimated $4.4 million ($143.018M cume), edging out Clash of the Titans which finished in 5th place with an estimated $4.28 million ($121.495M cume). Click over the jump for the daily chart.
