LONDON (AP) — The Greek gods and monsters sequel "Wrath of the Titans" is having its European premiere on the biggest screen in the U.K., the British Film Institute's IMAX theater in London.

Sam Worthington, the Australian lead of the 3D franchise, is walking the red carpet in London on Thursday evening, with British co-stars Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Rosamund Pike, Toby Kebbell and director Jonathan Liebesman.

Worthington reprises his role as the demigod Perseus as the story picks up a decade after the action in the first movie, "Clash of the Titans." The Titans who were imprisoned by the gods are escaping and Perseus must fight to save the world once again.

The sequel opens Friday in the U.S. and the U.K.
