[UPDATED With U.S. Poster] KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC Teases A Knight In Training In A New Clip
There are several clips now making the rounds for Tomasz Baginski’s newest film, Knights Of The Zodiac, the latest of which was released on Friday which you can view below. The clip features lead actor Mackenyu in the lead role of Seiya, opposite the portrayal of the Silver Saint, Eagle Marin, portrayed physically by actress and professional stuntwoman Caitlin Hutson (voiced by Asami Seto for the Japan dub release, English VO credit pending).
The scene, a training sequence between Seiya and the enigmatic and lithe Marin, pars for the course with Baginski’s adaptation of Masami Kurumada’s hit manga, which takes off as an origin story that centers on a street orphan thrust into an epic war between knights and the evildoers of Mount Olympus to protect a woman believed to be a reincarnated Goddess.
Andy Cheng (Marvel’s Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) led the team behind the stunt and action sequencing and assembly, which also included Hutson who spoke highly of Cheng to Film Combat Syndicate in a recently-conducted e-mail interview we will publish next month.
“I really wanted to live up to his expectations and, as such, was working so hard every day,” said Hutson. “When I say I was on top of my game, I mean it. How can you not be? It was also so cool to learn his tricks of the trade and hear all his stories.”
Knights Of The Zodiac just had its rousing red carpet premiere in Japan, dubbed Knights Of The Zodiac: The Beginning, with the cast and director on hand. The film’s local wide release will be on April 28 from Toei Animation with Sony and Stage6 Films releasing in the U.S. on May 12 between other dates around the globe.
Enjoy the clip below, and stay tuned for our upcoming interview with Hutson in the coming weeks! Also, peep the official U.S. poster just beneath!
