In 2010, an odd movie called “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” opened. The movie, based on the books by Rick Riordan, satisfied fans and help to create a legion of followers for the young lead, Logan Lerman.
Since then, Lerman has made a name for himself in movies like “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and now he has returned to the worlds of gods and their half-mortal offspring.
Earlier today, MTV News exclusively debuted the trailer for “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters,” and now we’re breaking it down to the moments that got us most excited.
1) This is Douglas Smith as Tyson. As you probably noticed, he has some crazy hair!
2) Uh oh. We’re having a “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” post-traumatic flashback.
3) Percy consults the Oracle, who looks a lot like the Crypt Keeper.
4) The good guys have to stop Kronos before he resurrects from this box.
5) To do that they’ll need the Golden Fleece.
6) Here’s the god of war’s daughter, Clarisse, played by Leven Rambin.
7) We’re having anothe “HP” flashback, this time for “Prisoner of Azkaban.”
8) Looks like Percy’s getting a new ride.
9) And a new sword!
10) Sorry, Annabeth. Those are not sharks. Kraken?
“Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” opens on August 16.
