HOLLYWOOD — Less than a year ago, Sam Worthington attended the premiere of “Terminator: Salvation” at the Chinese, then left the after-party early because he had to finish shooting “Clash of the Titans.”
Worthington returned for Warner Bros.’ “Titans” preem March 31 at the Chinese and post-screening bash at the Roosevelt, where the Greek theme included several “living statues.”
Comparing the two parties, he noted, “Last time, there were wacky motorcycles; now, there’s wacky nude guys. It’s a fun popcorn ride.”
Director Louis Leterrier admitted that he was particularly pleased that the event drew Harry Hamlin, star of the 1981 “Clash.”
“I am such a fan of his because I saw it when I was eight in Paris and I’ve always loved it,” he noted. “We didn’t want to make the same movie — we just wanted it to be as much fun.”
Legendary Pictures topper and exec producer Thomas Tull said that he saw the original at age 10 at a shopping mall multiplex in upstate New York. “The Medusa scene always gets me,” he added.
The event also drew Warner Bros.’ Alan Horn, Jeff Robinov, Sue Kroll, Dan Fellman and Veronika Kwan-Rubinek and cast members Alexa Davalos and Danny Huston.
