More Movies That The CW Could Turn Into Teenage Soap Operas

Now that The Hunger Games is breaking box office records, one thing's for sure: The CW is going to be racing forward with its TV version of Hunger Games, called The Selection.

Want to win a DVD of Clash of the Titans?

We loved Clash of the Titans (see io9's enthusiastic review), and our only complaint was that the 3D looked crappy. That's why it's a perfect DVD flick, because you get all the campy, fun goodness of giant monsters and none of the tacked-on 3D stuff.
