The detached eye sees everything.


Today, the makers of Clash of the Titans unveiled a brand-new clip from their upcoming film — and it reminded me, of all things, of the most recent trailer for Toy Story 3.

Why did it remind me of this? Because both of these videos include point-of-view shots taken from the perspective of a detached eye; in Clash of the Titans, it is the eye shared by the three Stygian witches, while in Toy Story 3, it is one of the eyes that belong to Mrs. Potato Head.

Now, if only there were a third example of this out there right now, we’d have an official trend on our hands.

Anyway, speaking of Clash of the Titans, there have been a few more updates to pass along since the last time I mentioned that film here. So, in no particular order:

— The filmmakers are already talking about turning this remake into a trilogy. (MTV Movies Blog)

— The last-minute conversion of this film from 2D to 3D has been getting some pretty mixed reviews. (Matt Holmes, Patrick Goldstein)

— Harry Hamlin, who starred in the original Clash of the Titans back in 1981, says he’s “sure” the new version will be “better”, at least on a technical level. (Los Angeles Times)

— The filmmakers knew what it would take to ensure that their film got a PG-13 rating in the United States, rather than an R: “It’s fine to kill monsters. It’s harder to kill real people . . . The blood can’t be red. If it’s black, it’s OK.” (Variety)
