The live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga Saint Seiya is coming to the big screen on May 12. At this weekend's WonderCon in Los Angeles, the cast was present to promote the movie and drop a new trailer.
Famke Janssen, Sean Bean, Mark Dacascos, Nick Stahl, Madison Iseman, Diego Tinoco, and Japanese-American actor Mackenyu star in the anime adaptation.
The new preview tells us what we need to know about this story for those unfamiliar with Japanese manga.
CineMovie was at the WonderCon event with the cast so be on the lookout for the interviews.
Based on the international anime sensation, Knights of the Zodiac brings the Saint Seiya saga to the big screen in live-action for the first time. Seiya (Mackenyu), a headstrong street teen, spends his time fighting for cash while he searches for his abducted sister. When one of his fights unwittingly taps into mystical powers, he never knew he had, Seiya finds himself thrust into a world of warring saints, ancient magical training, and a reincarnated goddess who needs his protection. If he’s to survive, he will need to embrace his destiny and sacrifice everything to take his rightful place among the Knights of the Zodiac.
