“Clash of the Titans” Posters Illustrated by “Saint Seiya” Creator Masami Kurumada
During an interview at the film's world premiere in London, director Louis Leterrier of Clash of the Titans revealed that he is a big Saint Seiya fan and admitted that the medieval-looking armour (instead of ancient Greek ones) that the gods wear in his film was influenced by the "Cloths" the heroes wear in Saint Seiya. The film's distributor Warner Brothers then asked author Masami Kurumada of Saint Seiya to collaborate on the film's poster art in Japan.
The four versions of Clash of the Titans posters illustrated by Kurumada were unveiled today.
