Sam Worthington Disappointed By Titans

Sam Worthington in Clash of the TitansSam Worthington found Clash of the Titans "disappointing."

The actor played the lead role of Perseus in the 2010 remake of the 1981 movie and while he was unhappy with a lot of the criticism the film received, he knows it wasn't as good as it could have been: "It was disappointing to me. You've got to get it right. I don't really care what critics say. They're going to have their beef. They get a free ticket and they still come and criticize. I was disappointed. It wasn't the movie that I would've liked it to be. In truth, there are a lot of people that I met who enjoyed it. But you hate those criticisms."

Sam - who reprises the role in forthcoming sequel Wrath of the Titans - admitted he was even unhappy with his own performance in the film and is hoping to do better in the new movie. "I think in the first one, there were mistakes I wanted to rectify. I wasn't happy with what I delivered, personally. And in adding things, like a kid, it gives more emotional stakes to the character, to the story. And basically we just wanted to make something a bit bigger and bolder, and hopefully better."

Sam Worthington Admits Clash of the Titans was a Letdown

Sam Worthington in Clash of the TitansIf you were one of those who felt disappointed by the recent Clash of the Titans remake, the star of that movie has a message for you.

Although Sam Worthington really had no control over the rushed 3-D conversion – there is one thing he can apologize for.

"I think the first one, we kind of let down some people,” he admitted to Moviefone. “I think I can act f***ing better, to be honest."

Despite, or because of, the first movie’s faults, Warner Bros. decided to go forward with a sequel. Why should wary fans give the series another chance?

Box Office Breakdown: Iron Man Fights Off Robin Hood

Robin Hood

‘s excellent aim couldn’t keep Robert Downey Jr. off target.

Despite increased competition in its second week of release, remained firm at the box office. Paramount’s sequel generated another $52 million between Friday-Sunday and vaulted over the $200 million mark domestically.

Meanwhile, ‘s arrow was sharp enough for a $36 million bounty, but a bit too dull for a first place finish. The film did, though, earn approximately $74 million in foreign dollars. That topped the $43.1 million overseas debut for 2000’s Gladiator - another Crowe/Ridley Scott production.

Box Office Breakdown: Iron Man 2 Soars High Above the Competition

Iron Man 2

Only one movie earned over $10 million over this weekend…and only movie scored over $125 million as well.

Iron Man 2 - with help from Mickey Rourke’s powerful weapons - whipped up $128.1 million over the past three days, giving Paramount its biggest open in history. The sequel, which was produced for approximately $170 million, easily improved upon Iron Man‘s $98.6 million premiere in 2008 and nabbed the fifth-largest debut of all time. (The Dark Knight still tops that leader board with its $158.4 million outing.)

Focus Features’ also made news of its own despite coming nowhere near Iron Man 2‘s numbers. The documentary, which was only released in 534 theaters, delivered $2.2 million and a ninth-place finish over the Mother’s Day weekend.

Box Office Breakdown: Freddy Krueger a Theatrical Nightmare

Nightmare on Elm Street

Even though it’s a recurring dream, can still still scare up a few dollars.

Warner Bros.’ reboot of the horror classic clawed its way up to the top of the charts this weekend with a bloody good $32.9 million. Director Samuel Bayer’s first feature film more than tripled its nearest competitor while just falling shy of Freddy vs. Jason‘s $36 million open in 2003. (This installment did, though, top all other Elm street debuts.)

Meanwhile, it appears Brendan Fraser’s latest entry may have actually scared away audiences. , also starring Brooke Shields, only grossed $6.6 million over the last three days. Sadly, that amount was still higher than what Fraser generated in his last film…with Harrison Ford. (Extraordinary Measures unfolded to $6 million back in January.)
