The last time we caught up with Perseus (Sam Worthington), Zeus (Liam Neeson), Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Co. in 2010's "Clash of the Titans," the gods were playing around with human lives, the Kraken was released and destroyed, and Perseus was asked to join the ranks on Mount Olympus. And although we've long known about the film's sequel "Wrath of the Titans," we haven't had a clear look at what we'll be getting into when it opens next March, until now.

The "Wrath of the Titans" trailer is here, and it is an action-packed of sword-slinging, monster-fighting excellence. Here are the five key elements we took away from the two-minute clip:

It's Official: 'All My Children,' 'One Life To Live' Both Canceled For Good, Won't Go Online

It's Official: 'All My Children,' 'One Life To Live' Both Canceled For Good, Won't Go Online
"All My Children" and "One Life To Live" are both dead, after all.

Following their cancellations by longtime network ABC in April, it was announced that internet distributor Prospect Park had licensed the rights to the shows and would continue them on a new online network. Now, Prospect Park is suspending their attempts to broadcast the shows, too.

"We believed the timing was right to launch an Online TV Network anchored by these two iconic soap operas," the company said in a statement, "but we always knew it would be an uphill battle to create something historical, and unfortunately we couldn't ultimately secure the backing and clear all the hurdles in time. We believe we exhausted all reasonable options apparent to us, but despite enormous personal, as well as financial cost to ourselves, we failed to find a solution."

Earlier in the month, Prospect Park announced that "All My Children,

'All My Children' Won't Be Coming To The Internet
"All My Children" and "One Life To Live" won't be coming to the Internet after all.

On Wednesday, Prospect Park, the online company that had said it would be bringing the canceled soaps to the Web, released a statement announcing that the deal had fallen through.

There were signs of trouble earlier in the month, when the online debut of "All My Children" was delayed.

The soap operas were canceled in April, but Prospect Park soon signed a licensing deal and announced the now-doomed plan to bring the shows online.

Below, read the full statement:

After five months of negotiations with various guilds, hundreds of presentations to potential financial and technology partners, and a hope that we could pioneer a new network for the future, it is with great disappointment that we are suspending our aspirations to revive "One Life to Live" and "All My Children" via online distribution.

'One Life to Life' and 'All My Children' dead: Online plans canceled
Sorry, soap fans: The painful economics of running soap operas on the internet have made it impossible to keep the shows alive after they’ve been yanked off of broadcast TV. Prospect Park announced today that its plan to move One Life to Life and All My Children to a planned Online Network in 2012 has been shuttered, dashing any hope of keeping Llanview and Pine Valley fans satiated.

The media and production company founded in 2009 by Jeffrey Kwatinetz and former Disney Studios head Rich Frank was unable to reach guild deals to make the soaps’ run on the internet a reality.

The film brought him to the attention of Wes Craven who later hired him for The Hills Have Eyes Part II a year later.

The producers of Dreamt, which is based on a script by Andrew Alexander, commented:-

The chimes at midnight

Unless we find an angel, our television program will go off the air at the end of its current season. There. I've said it. Usually in television, people use evasive language. Not me. We'll be gone. I want to be honest about why this is. We can't afford to finance it any longer.

Before I go into details, let me say that by any fair measure, "Ebert Presents At The Movies" has been a great success. The program has a coverage of more than 90% of the country, and all of the top 50 markets. Our ratings place us among the top shows on public television, and compare to the ratings of cable news. And we have loyal and vocal followers. Whenever our show is pre-empted for any reason we get immediate e-mails, calls and letters from viewers looking for it. We have also had cordial relations with the programmers and station managers across the country.

Adele: 'Amy Winehouse flies in paradise'

Adele: 'Amy Winehouse flies in paradise'
Adele has said that Amy Winehouse is flying in paradise, after she was found dead at her Camden home at the age of 27 on Saturday. The 'Rolling in the Deep' singer wrote a blog post about Winehouse's influence on her and British music as a whole. Adele said: "Not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it. With no fuss and no compromise. But she knew what she was capable of and didn't even need to try. If she wanted to do something she would and if she didn't she'd say f**k off. "It came easy to her and that's why we all loved her so much. We believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them." Adele added: "Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again

Adele Says Amy Winehouse 'Paved The Way For Artists Like Me'

'Rolling in the Deep' singer writes about being inspired by Winehouse.

A common thread in many of the stories about the death of Amy Winehouse is the huge influence the "Back to Black" singer had on a new generation of young vocalists. Many of those singers, from Jessie J to Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson have weighed in on their sadness about the passing of Winehouse at the age of 27 from yet-undetermined causes.

And while Winehouse has been mentioned as a touchstone for any number of new British pop crooners such as Duffy and Estelle, the one artist most frequently cited as a descendant of the Winehouse influence is Adele.

With her smash hit 21 album, the year's fastest selling to date on the back of a massive hit single, "Rolling in the Deep," Adele is enjoying the kind of

Grant Morrison: my Supergods from the age of the superhero

From frying God's brain to escorting Thatcher from office, the Scots writer chooses his favourite superhero moments

Action Comics #1, 1938

This was the first ever superhero comic. Not only did it start everything off, the first image of the story is incredible. It's Superman – who was an unknown character at that time – leaping through the air with a tied-up blonde under his arm, with absolutely no explanation of how he got there, or why. What I like about it is that, as a piece of storytelling, it's very modernistic, and having always thought about it in terms of nostalgia, when I was researching it for the book it was great to go back and see it for what it was. From the first panel on, it sets up everything for the next 70 years.

The Flash #163, 1966

This was from the time of pop art comics in the 1960s when DC Comics had go-go chicks,

Official: News Corp Withdraws BSkyB Bid

What a bitter defeat for Rupert Murdoch. His News Corp this morning just finally made clear it has withdrawn its bid for full control of British Sky Broadcasting. The news comes as British lawmakers were about to demand that Murdoch give up his goal of taking complete control over the lucrative U.K. broadcaster in a $14 billion bid for the 61% of the pay-tv operator that News Corp doesn't already own outright. News Corp wanted to get its hands on all the UK satellite giant's swelling £5.7 billion ($9 billion) revenues. It would have cemented Rupert’s position as the most powerful media baron in Britain and this as the biggest deal of his storied career. So the decision to withdraw his bid can be seen as his biggest business debacle as BSkyB was the last and most important piece of his ambitious plan to control satellite TV across the globe. Here's the official News Corp statement,
