The Warner Brothers movie studio has unveiled four posters that Masami Kurumada, the creator of the Saint Seiya fantasy action manga, drew for Louis Leterrier's 2010 remake of the Clash of the Titans film. The posters began appearing in train and subway stations in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, and Fukuoka this week. (The film will open in Japan on April 23.) The art will also appear in special pamphlets in theaters throughout Japan as well as in Shueisha's Super Jump and Young Jump magazines on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
During an interview at his film's March 29 world premiere in London, the French native Leterrier revealed that he is a big Saint Seiya fan. He specifically cited the armor that the gods wear in his film remake as a sign of homage and respect to Saint Seiya. (Both works are inspired by Greek mythology.)
