Brand New Trailer and Poster – PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTNING THIEF

Trouble-prone teen Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out school – but that’s the least of his problems. The gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters seem to have walked out of the pages of Percy’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. Now, Percy and his friends must embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true thief, save Percy’s family, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

I’ve not read the books that this upcoming film is based I’m trying not to make any huge leaps.  The poster did make me think Harry Potter rather than just think ‘Cool Poster’. It feels like the makers are trying their best to ride the Harry potter wave while we’re waiting for the last two films. If it works it’s a good move on their part from a financial point of view but it could backfire if people start to tire of what they might perceive as a ‘Potter Clone’ whether it’s an unfair description or not.

On saying all of that I thought the trailer looked  cool  and a step up from the previous trailers I’ve seen.  I do think that Pierce Brosnan look like he was starring in Robinson Crusoe: The Modern Years  with that beard.

Release date: 12th February 2010

  1. I like that this is different than the typical “unlikely generic boy learns his destiny as Chosen One” This kid sounds like a troublemaker who sort of deserves the trouble he’s in.

    The poster’s pretty badass. I would give this one a shot, maybe.
