I know quite a few of you will probably be checking this movie out for one reason and one reason only: Nathan Fillion. But even if this latest trailer makes his part as the god, Hermes, appear as a large chunk of the film, I fear his role will be minor. Though no less awesome, this is Nathan Fillion we’re talking about.
Otherwise, the trailer shows off much of what we’ve seen already: teenagers fighting mythical beasts and monsters, only this time, underwater! The first Percy Jackson movie was entertaining, clearly trying to fill the void left by Harry Potter, but no less enjoyable because of it. The sequel looks to be much of the same, and I’m all right with that.
Percy Jackson has had an unnervingly quiet school year. But then he discovers that the magical borders protecting Half Blood Hill are failing. Unless something is done, the camp will be attacked by demons and monsters. The only way to restore power to the camp’s borders and to save their home is to find the mythical Golden Fleece. And the only who can undertake this dangerous quest are Percy and his friends. Embarking on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters (known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle), they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate Evil.
