Six new character posters for the Chris Columbus directed film Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Theif were unleased online today and they look pretty cool. These give us a great look at some of the characters we haven't really been able to see in detail yet. Most notably Pierce Brosnan as Chiron, and Uma Thurman as Medusa.
This movie looks like it's gonna be pretty cool and Warner Bros. is banking on it taking over for Harry Potter when when that franchise is concluded. Will it pay off? Will the audience bite? If it's good I don't see why not, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
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 adapts to his newly discovered status as a demi-god (his father is Poseidon), he finds himself caught between the battling titans of Mt. Olympus. 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 character posters below and tell us what ya think! Do you think this will be as big as Harry Potter?
