Oh, happy day! Imagine if you will the Ray Harryhausen epic in eye-popping 1080p high definition viewing! Medusa! The Kraken! Burgess Meredith’s Beard! All in stunning detail!

Warner Home Video announced today that the original Clash of the Titans will be hitting Blu-ray on March 2nd, 2010 in a special 40-page book edition. Special features include:

  • A Conversation with Ray Harryhausen featurette

    Before history and beyond imagination! The machinations of gods above and the fates of man and monsters here below play out in a Clash of the Titans. Decades prior to the sensational 2010 version of the tale, Harry Hamlin took up sword and shield to play valorous Perseus, mortal son of Zeus (Laurence Olivier) who sets out to fulfill his destiny by rescuing beloved Andromeda from the wrath of goddess Thetis (Maggie Smith). Perils await Perseus time and again. And eye-filling thrills await viewers as stop-motion effects legend Ray Harryhausen (Jason and the Argonauts) unleashes snake-haired Medusa, fearsome Kraken, winged Pegasus, two-headed dog Dioskilos, giant scorpions and more. Rejoice, fantasy fans: the movie gods gift us with adventure that’s innovative, heroic, titanic.

      As much as I love Clash of the Titans, I’m nervous what a Hi-Def version might look like. I hope we don’t see strings and hands moving the stop-motion claymation…the movie is amazing, but the f/x, not-so-much. I for one cannot wait to see the updated version. I just hope they keep the story true to the original.

        Not to worry man, I have other Harryhausen flicks on Blu-ray and they look incredible.
