* In ''Film/{{Clash of the Titans|1981}}'', which is based on the myth of Perseus, Princess Danae and her newborn son Perseus are shut into a box and thrown into the sea by Danae's dad Acrisios, who is angered that she has had a child despite him locking her away from men. Danae's lover and Perseus' father is the god Zeus, who instructs the sea god to ensure that Danae and her child are taken by the currents to a safe place, the island of Seriphos, where Perseus grows to adulthood.



** The scene was reenacted in ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'', but without the prophecy, Acrisios doing it simply out of jealousy; Zeus punishes Acrisios dearly for his act, killing him by crushing the clay model that contains his life force, and ordering Poseidon to release the Kraken to unleash its rage upon Argos, destroying it. However, he instructs the sea god to ensure that Danae and her child are taken by the currents to a safe place, the island of Seriphos, where Perseus grows to adulthood.
