Clash of the Titans

October 4, 2015

COTTPerseus, the mortal son of the god Zeus, embarks on a perilous journey to defeat Hades, the vengeful god of the underworld, before Fades can seize power.

Spyros: One day, somebody’s gonna have to make a stand. One day, somebody’s gonna have to say enough.

[last lines] Zeus: You may not want to be a god, Perseus, but after feats like yours, men will worship you. Be good to them. Be better than we were. And if you insist on continuing this mundane human existence, I won’t have you do it alone. You’re the son of Zeus, after all!

Perseus: I’d rather die in the mud with those men than live forever as a god.

[first lines] Io: The oldest story ever told are written in the stars. Stories of time before man and gods, when Titans ruled the earth. The Titans were powerful but their reign was ended by their own sons: Zeus, Poseiden, and Hades. Zeus convinced his brother Hades to create a beast so strong it could defeat their parents. And from his own flesh Hades gave birth to an unspeakable horror… the Kraken. Zeus became king of the heavens. Posieden, king of the sea. And Hades, tricked by Zeus, was left to rule the underworld in darkness and in misery. It was Zeus who created man and man’s prayers fed the gods’ immortality. But in time, mankind grew restless. They began to question the gods and, finally, rise up against them. Into this world, a child was born. A boy who would change everything.

Spyros: One day, somebody’s gonna have to make a stand. One day, somebody’s gonna have to say enough.

Perseus: If I do this, I do it as a man.

Draco: But you are NOT just a man.

[last lines] Zeus: You may not want to be a god, Perseus, but after feats like yours, men will worship you. Be good to them. Be better than we were. And if you insist on continuing this mundane human existence, I won’t have you do it alone. You’re the son of Zeus, after all!

Perseus: I’d rather die in the mud with those men than live forever as a god.

Hades: You are specks of dust beneath our fingernails. Your very breath is a gift from Olympus. You have insulted powers beyond your comprehension.

[Perseus draws his divine sword at Hades] Hades: I’m a god! I will live forever!

Perseus: But not here. [hurls the sword at Hades, and a lightning bolt from Zeus hits Hades at the same time]

Hades: In 10 days, when the sun is eclipsed, I will unleash the Kraken. Argos will be swept from the earth and all of you with it. Unless you sacrifice the princess you so foolish compare to the gods. Only her blood will sate the Kraken and Zeus, who you have so offended. Choose your penance, Argos. Destruction of sacrifice. This is the will of Zeus. [turns his attention to Perseus] The will of your father.

Spyros: I am your father, Perseus. Marmara is your mother. And you will always be our son. The bond between us is… it’s much more than flesh and bone. The love we have for you, it’s that love that gods and kings fight over. I’ve never understood the gods. But even I don’t question that you were saved for a reason. And some day… that reason is gonna take you far away from here. But not tonight, eh?

Draco: There is a God in you. Be sure to bring it. End of lesson.

Zeus: I created them, and they reward my love with defiance? There will be no truce!

Zeus: [about Perseus] Have I heard his prayers? This son holds no love for me!

Cassiopeia: The gods need us. They need our worship. What do we need of them?

Perseus: My father was killed by a god. My mother, sister, everyone I loved was killed by a god. I mend nets. Not wield a sword.

Hades: You are specks of dust beneath our fingernails. Your very breath is a gift from Olympus. You have insulted powers beyond your comprehension.

Spyros: I am your father, Perseus. Marmara is your mother. And you will always be our son. The bond between us is… it’s much more than flesh and bone. The love we have for you, it’s that love that gods and kings fight over. I’ve never understood the gods. But even I don’t question that you were saved for a reason. And some day… that reason is gonna take you far away from here. But not tonight, eh?
