Warner Bros. is still trying to sell us on Percy Jackson & The Olympians being the next big Harry Potter type franchise. So much in fact that I'm sure you all remember the dark blue poster styles that were created for the last couple Harry Potter films. Well, they have implemented that same kind of poster design for these new character posters that come from Latino Review for Percy Jackson.
I haven't read any of these books, but Mazer, one of the co-founders of GeekTyrant has and He really enjoyed them, and said the movies have a ton of potential if they are done right.
Here's the story summary in case you haven't read the books and are just waiting for the movie.
It's the 21st century, but 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.
Check out the new posters above a below and tell us what you think!
