Yes, the remake of Clash of the Titans was pretty bad, and director Louis Leterrier had some truly choice words for the 3D conversion of his film. We here at Dread Central hate conversions as much as the next guy, but this is truly hilarious.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Leterrier remarked, “It was famously rushed and famously horrible. It was absolutely horrible, the 3D. Nothing was working, it was just a gimmick to steal money from the audience. I’m a good boy and I rolled with the punches and everything, but it’s not my movie. Clash of the Titans is not my movie. And ultimately that’s why I didn’t do the sequel.”
“It’s a fun action movie, all in all,” he continues. “Some people are really happy with the movie. I tried to do the best I could, but it was not the best experience of my life, I must say. I wasn’t protected. Talking about surrounding yourself with the right people — I felt like I was really thrown at the wolves.”
Yes, 3D conversions are for the most part tacked on as a gimmick to inflate ticket prices, but dude, it’s a viewer’s choice. No one HAS to see the movie in 3D as it also plays in 2D. So the fact that the movie kind of sucked was all the conversion’s fault? It wasn’t your movie? Then how do you account for the fact that Clash of the Titans sucked in 2D too? Whatever.
