Percy Jackson & the Olympians

Up until now, we had only seen a mediocre teaser trailer for Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, but now the first full trailer is online and it definitely gives you a better idea of what the movie is looking to become.

The movie is directed by Chris Columbus, who also directed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This is fitting, as The Lightning Thief has a definite Harry Potter vibe to it, only instead of wizardry, we have Greek mythology. It’s definitely aimed at a teen/family audience, but also looks like it could be a lot of fun for all ages. The story follows a teenage boy who discovers that he is the son of god of the sea, Poseidon, and has to help to locate the lightning bolt of Zeus before a war breaks out amongst the gods.

Click on over to check out the trailer and share your thoughts below!

Whether this looks like your cup of tea or not, you can’t deny that Percy Jackson & the Olympians has a fantastic cast. Names include Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) as Zeus; Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder) as Hades; Ray Winstone (The Departed) as Ares; Uma Thurman (Kill Bill) as Medusa; Pierce Brosnan (The Matador) as Chiron; Rosario Dawson (Alexander) as Persephone; and Catherine Keener (The 40 Year Old Virgin) as the Jackson’s mother, and Kevin McKidd (who has been in the news a lot lately) as Poseidon and Jackson’s father.

  1. this is sooooo cool!

    although, considering that they’re like 16 instead of 12, it’s cool, they attract a wider range of audiences don’t you agree?

    They aged the characters from 12 to about 17, so when you have teens like that, audiences will expect a little budding romance like that. They did something similar in Prince Caspian, where they had Susan and Caspian seem interested in each other, yet there’s nothing like that in the book.
