The Legendary Kraken as Portrayed in Movies and Video Games

I personally don’t see the big draw about Clash of the Titans, but I know that it can’t be Sam Worthington.  The marketing is unavoidable, of course, and all the previews seem to suggest that the Kraken fight will be a huge action sequence.  The Kraken also appears on large posters in the New York subways along with the movie’s release date.  The Kraken is ubiquitous.

Clash of the Titans isn’t the first time the Kraken has been shown in a movie – far from it, actually.  It’s appeared in many movies over the years – most recently in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 – as well as in many video games.  The thing is, there are many ways to interpret the Kraken, and as result, one version of the Kraken may look very different from another.  Some are like squids, others seem almost humanoid.  To see what I mean, take a look at the legendary Kraken as portrayed in movies and video games below.
