Clash of the Titans: Of Jedi and Congressmen

Spoiler alert: At the end of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Qui-Gon Jinn dies from a sudden case of lightsaber indigestion. Obi-Wan would be glad to know that his mentor lives once more, as the king of the Greek gods, Zeus. In the upcoming remake of the 1981 fantasy classic Clash of the Titans, Qui-Gon Zeus should be safe from potential lightsaber attacks by his Magical Armor of Lens Flaring (which also offers a +12 against paparazzi).

The plot of the film is simple: Lord Voldemort Hades is jealous of Zeus’s pimped out armor so he decides to overthrow the king, unleash Hell on Earth and illegally download music from the Internet. The RIAA gets wind of this and hires Perseus as a congressional lobbyist. On his perilous quest, Perseus must battle a slew of the most frightening demons ever to walk the earth: politicians.

Even more impressive than the visual splendor is the casting. Rather than using a bunch of CGI the director managed to get real political figures! Just take a look at these stills:
