It was marked as the ‘Franchise’ to take over Harry Potter’s Franchise crown but in 2010 Percy Jackson & The Lightening Thief overall had mediocre return at the box office and now the franchise that people forgot about is returning . This Summer the son of Poseidon Percy (Logan Lerman)returns for another adventure in Percy Jackson: Sea Monsters watch the trailer.
Percy and his Demigod friends head to the Sea of Monsters (know to humans as Bermuda Triangle) in search of the mythical golden fleece to prevent Kronos (who just happens to be Percy’s grandfather) seeking his vengeance on Olympus. The journey will see him sail uncharted and fight monsters,creatures attempting to prevent Percy succeeding.
The first film was actually ok but it didn’t deliver anything special to merit a fantastic film, probably thanks to a bad scripted film, but now Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) is directing hopefully he will deliver a better storyand maybe give this franchise a chance to shine. However the trailer does seem to fall into that spoiler region packing as much of the movie into 2 and half minutes, so is this saying it’s same old same old? If the kids love Percy Jackson that’s what matters here….
Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters will be released in UK&Ireland 14th August (16th August USA) and also stars Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Sean Bean, Nathan Fillion, Stanley Tucci, Jake Abel, Missi Pyle, Daniel Cudmore, Leven Rambin, and Anthony Head.
