After filming the remake of Clash of the Titans in Tenerife in 2009, Warner Brothers filmed the sequel, the Wrath of the Titans, here last year. The call for extras was greeted with delight, and huge queues, with auditions held in April. Shooting took place over May and June, and the film is now being released. A preview, screened in 3D, will be shown in the Yelmo cinema in the Centro Comercial Meridiano in Santa Cruz tomorrow at 9pm (map HERE for the cinema). It will then go on general release in Spain on 30 March. The trailer is above, and no doubt once again an eagle-eyed Tenerife-based audience will be hoping to spot familiar scenes and landmarks, and those lucky extras.
A 40-year-old woman who fell into the sea from some rocks near the road tunnel at Puerto de la Cruz yesterday has died. The poor woman had been admitted to the Hospital Bellevue in critical condition after being pulled unconscious from the sea by a bomberos lifeboat, but despite all the hospital could do to try to save her life, she died in the early hours of this morning.
With Spain in economic crisis and unemployment rising to frightening levels, La Voz has compiled a list of professions that will be most in demand over the coming months and maybe years, and the areas, therefore, where skills would be most usefully developed. I’ve limited the list to those I consider most accessible to non-Spanish, and hope it helps to give some direction for those out of work.
- Recycled energy: the skills most in demand are organizers, engineers, economists, geographers, and environmental specialists.
- Solar panel installers: particularly new ecological energy systems, as well as solar, in new construction and renovations.
