Masami Kurumada Does Clash Of The Titans

Posted by Grey Thursday, April 29, 2010

The legendary creator and artist of 80s iconic manga series, Saint Seiya (聖闘士星矢), Masami Kurumada (車田正美) takes on Louis Leterrier's "Clash Of The Titans".

While Louis Leterrier's "Clash Of The Titans" is actually a film that has nothing to write home about, the marketing of the film in Japan has took on some cool development.

Creator and artist of 80s iconic manga series, Saint Seiya (聖闘士星矢) and B't X, Masami Kurumada (車田正美), was commissioned to illustrate four special posters for the film to be displayed at multiple major subway stations across Japan.

According to Gigazine, the project came along when Louis Leterrier was doing an interview at the film's world premiere in London, and admitted that the medieval-looking armor (instead of ancient Greek ones) that the gods (particularly Liam Neeson's Zeus, which seemed like a replica of the Gold Saint Armor) wore in the film was influenced by the "Cloths" the heroes wear in Saint Seiya, and the unsurprising revelation that he is a big Saint Seiya fan. In response, the film's distributor Warner Brothers approached Kurumada to work on variations of the film's poster in Japan.

Check out all four versions of posters illustrated by Kurumada below.
