There don't seem to be any tags on SFF.SE for Clash of the Titans. It seems to be in the fantasy realm, but I don't want to post an off-topic question.

Is Clash of the Titans considered fantasy?

  • lack of tag - most likely due to it being a trash movie and no one carrying to ask a question on it before. – Himarm May 31 '16 at 14:15

    @Himarm Trash film sometime rise more question too. There are few on Movies &TV ( for 1981's film , for 2010'sfilm and for sequel) – Victor Salazar May 31 '16 at 14:35
  • @Himarm, yeah, not the best movie, but I do have a question that I have wondered about for a long time. – KyloRen May 31 '16 at 14:46

    @KyloRen - The 1981 version is awesome. The modern ones are what my father would refer to as "watchable rubbish". – Valorum May 31 '16 at 17:14

Both versions of the film and the 2012 sequel 'Wrath of the Titans' are clearly on-topic for SFF:SE.

They're currently untagged, not because they're off-topic, but simply because no-one has asked a question about them (yet).


Setting & Conceit.

The story is a fictionalised mish-mash of Greek, Egyptian and Sumerian myths. Gods and mortals fight against gigantic monsters, dragons, demons, beasts and worm-creatures using a varied mixture of sword and sorcery items and godly magic.


Marketing

Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds.

Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Action/Adventure

Cast/Crew opinion

Director

You have creatures throughout the movie being mingled with the real characters. You saw Sheik Solomon, the big wooden character. So, this is part of the world we’re creating where it’s mythology. Its not history, its not fantasy, it’s an in-between.

Director Louis Leterrier On Set Interview CLASH OF THE TITANS

Director (Sequel)

“For me, taking Greek mythology and all that fantasy and putting it in a real world that’s epic, like Gladiator, like a big Ridley Scott movie, and taking all that fantasy and putting it in, grounding it, making it feel real, that’s the movie that I wanted to see when I walked into Clash 1 and that’s the movie that Clash 2 is gonna be. That’s what I was looking for, I was looking to come in and have a real, intense, visceral kick-ass experience with spectacle but grounded, with great actors, and that’s what the second one will be.”

    And who knows, if the tag gets 50 questions, you get a shiny new taxonomist badge – Möoz May 31 '16 at 21:49

    @Mooz - 50 questions about Clash of the Titans? I think that's more questions than the makers asked. – Valorum May 31 '16 at 21:51
