Apparently the folks over at Warner Brothers have no fear, because they've opted to push back the big release of their 'Clash of the Titans' sequel, 'Wrath of the Titans,' from March 20th, 2012 to March 23rd, 2012, the same day the highly-anticipated adaption of 'The Hunger Games' is due out.
Who'll come out the big winner? Forget that this big showdown is more than a year away; it's already quite obvious that 'Wrath of the Titans' stands no chance. First off, director Jonathan Liebesman and co. must be living under rock because folks are going absolutely crazy about every tiny detail that develops with 'The Hunger Games.' Forget marketing; the popularity of Suzanne Collins' book seems to be enough of an advertising campaign alone. Plus, 'Clash of the Titans' is only getting another go-around because it earned a pretty penny at the box office. Meanwhile, a number of moviegoers that contributed to that massive haul weren't pleased about dropping the extra cash for the third dimension just to not get their money's worth. 'Wrath of the Titans' is going to need every edge it can get in this match-up.
So it seems as though this is a winning situation for 'The Hunger Games,' but there are still a number of other box office battles to keep an eye on in the coming months.
