When the second full trailer popped up for Percy Jackson & the Olympians, I thought it would only have a scene or two more footage than the Full International Trailer. I was wrong, and I'm extremely happy I was. The new trailer is packed with more than 30 seconds of eye popping action.
The film stars Logan Lerman(3:10 to Yuma/Gamer) in the title role. In the new trailer, we get our first look at Sean Bean as Zeus and Catherine Keener as Percy's mother. But we get a little less of Uma Thurman as the sexiest Medusa I've ever seen. The film also stars Rosario Dawson, Pierce Brosnan, Erica Cerra(Eureka), and Tropic Thunder's Brandon T. Jackson and Steve Coogan.
Directed by Chris Columbus(Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone & Chamber of Secrets), and based on Rick Riordin’s novel, Percy Jackson & the Olympians is set in the 21st century, where the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson’s Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they’re not happy: Zeus’ lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy’s mother. As Percy finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy’s mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.
The only aspect I don't like about the new trailer, is the slightly spoilerish declaration that is included in the trailer. They give a much bigger hint to it in the beginning of the trailer, but give the full on reveal when Percy realizes, "I'm Poseidon's son!" Well, it may be not be that big of a secret. But rejoice in the fact that Kevin McKidd(Rome/Grey Anatomy) will be taking up the trident in the film.
Percy Jackson & The Olympians hits theaters Feb. 12th.
There's a water battle at the end that looks pretty freaking amazing. Check out the Trailer and let us know what you think!
