Film.com and MTV are happy to give you an exclusive look at the first trailer for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and boy, do these kids want this blanket something fierce.
In the sequel to 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief," Percy (Logan Lerman) and all his demigod friends are back. After rescuing Zeus' all-powerful lightning bolt in the series' first installment, Percy and Co. (including Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith and more, including "The Host"'s Jake Abel as scowly demigod Luke) must recover a golden fleece, which will save their home, Camp Half-Blood, from the Bad Guys (and, one assumes, the shivers).
Check out the trailer, above, for all kinds of cool effects (fire! Swords! Intrigue! Adventure!), friendly teen competition (looks like Leven Rambin, as Clarisse La Rue, gives our favorite wallflower demigod a run for his money) and, of course, a desperate search for fleece.
"Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" is set for release on August 16, 2013.
