It's a rare thing in Hollywood for anyone to acknowledge their mistakes, but this seems to be the season of honesty: First, Mark Walhberg came clean on The Happening, and Liam Neeson gave his thoughts on Clash of the Titans. Here's Worthington's mea culpa.
Talking to Moviefone on the set of his new film, Man on a Ledge, Worthington talked of his desires to make Wrath of the Titans a better film than its predecessor.
"I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. And yeah, I totally agree. The only point of doing a sequel is either the audience demands it or you believe you can better the first one. What we're setting out to do with this one—the writers and the director and myself—is improve. I think I can act f---ing better, to be honest ... Just take all the notes from people that I have been reading about on the 'net and give them a movie they f---ing want. This one I want to kind of try to satisfy a lot more people.... I've always said you make movies for an audience, that's who you make movies for," he said. "If the audience is speaking, it's like the old gladiator thing, they give us the thumbs up/thumbs down, you want to stay alive in that coliseum as long as you can."While the idea of listening to the audience—and the incredibly vocal online journalism community—is a noble one, and Clash of the Titans well earned the scorn that was laid upon it, it must be said that maybe it's not the wisest plan to chart a course based on "notes from people on the 'net."
Remember—the Net was positive that Snakes on a Plane would be awesome.
