Two years after the original Clash of the Titans became synonymous with "awful, misbegotten 3D," a sequel is coming to try and make you forget all that, and convince you that Greek gods raining hell upon the earth is actually fun. If you're a big fan of movies that actually require you to use your brain, you're probably inclined to stay far, far away, but wait as second. As goofy as this movie looks, either director Jonathan Liebesman or the producers have gone out of their way to cast a ton of actors you like and respect, from Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes reviving their roles from the first one to some newcomers, including An Education's Rosamund PIke, Bill Nighy, and maybe weirdest of all, Carlos breakout star Edgar Ramirez.

If you simply can't believe that casting, take a look at this brand-new character poster below, in which Ramirez gets his scream on as Ares, the god of war. It's more than a little surreal to see if you're familiar at all with Ramirez's calm and collected performance in Carlos, but that's what makes it fun.

What the hell is going on in this image? I have no idea-- despite a handful of trailers thus far, I'm still pretty unclear on the plot of Wrath of the Titans, beyond the fact that it involves Sam Worthington's Perseus jumping into battle again. But this movie is looking silly in the good way, and at least less eye-bleedingly terrible in 3D than its predecessor. We can all find out for sure when the movie opens March 30.
