An in-depth exploration of the mythical cephalopod and its real-life counterparts with Executive Vice President and COO of the Center for Aquatic Sciences, Angela Wenger.
CLASH OF THE TITANS follows Zeus’s mortal son Perseus (Harry Hamlin), who discovers that his destiny is to rescue and marry beautiful princess Andromeda (Julie Bowker), but only after passing a series of perilous tests. Gloriously over-the-top and relentlessly entertaining, this adventure features a crackerjack cast of respected thespians (including Maggie Smith as the goddess Thetis and Laurence Olivier as Zeus) and enough thrilling face-offs to fill a movie twice its length. But the real star of the show is special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen, whose eye-popping stop-motion animation brings to life such fabulous creatures as snake-haired Medusa, winged horse Pegasus, and, of course, the giant, tentacled Kraken.
Cast: Harry Hamlin, Laurence Olivier, Judi Bowker, Maggie Smith
