Sam Worthington Knows You Didn't Like 'Clash of the Titans'

I've never quite understood this tendency to promote a sequel by badmouthing the movie you made before it. Last year, everybody associated with Transformers: Dark of the Moon went out of their way to say, don't worry, it would be better than Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. And now we have Sam Worthington, star of Wrath of the Titans, constantly telling interviewers that he stunk in Clash of the Titans. And so an essay was born. For IFC Fix, I wrote about this weird tendency and why I don't necessarily trust Worthington.
