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.
Directed by Thor Freudenthal, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters stars Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith, Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Leven Rambin, Stanley Tucci, Robert Maillet and Zoe Aggeliki.
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters opens on August 7th, will you be seeing this one in theatres? Come on, it’s directed by a guy named Thor!? How could it be bad?
The Percy Jackson franchise continues to roll along, always striving for that elusive, Harry Potter-esque, box office glory. Personally, I thought the first flick, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief was pretty good. I’m not saying it was spectacular, but it was entertaining. This trailer for its sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters – glad they dropped The Olympians bit – looks to be much of the same, a good popcorn flick for those who like teenage heroes and Greek gods.
The CGI effects look good, especially that pretty sea horse thingy, and hey, what do you know, Nathan Fillion is in this movie for some reason. That adds some bonus points right there!
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters releases this August 16th, interested?
There’s new production stills from director Thor Freudenthal‘s Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters on the Internet. There’s not been a lot of news about the sequel lately, eight out of ten people would most likely be surprised that a sequel was even being made. The trilogy was already planned though before the first movie even started production.
We should see the first trailer some time next week, it’s scheduled to run before screenings of The Host. Written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the continuing story stars Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith, Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle, Sean Bean, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Leven Rambin, Stanley Tucci, Robert Maillet and Zoe Aggeliki.
This time around we find Percy Jackson, the son of Poseidon, continuing his “epic journey to fulfill his destiny,” and simply stay alive, as he teams up with his demigod friends to retrieve the Golden Fleece, the only thing that has the power to save the heroes home and training ground, Camp Half-Blood.
I’ll be checking it out if only to see Sean Bean (Zeus) in a role in which he cannot die at the end and Nathan Fillion as Hermes.

For the next three days Las Vegas will be home to something other then gambling and Ultimate Fighting, it’s the home of the Las Vegas Licensing Expo. Each year, exhibitors from all over the world come together to sell off the licensing rights to their hottest properties. But, this gives us a sneak peek at the coming movies for 2013.
With photos courtesy of Coming Soon, we’ve been given a glimpse into the coming year’s hottest properties through the art of the “teaser poster”. After Earth, A Good Day To Die Hard, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, R.I.P.D., Robocop, Robopocalypse, Pacific Rim and Ender’s Game – they’re all here.
Even if A Good Day To Die Hard looks like the exact same poster as the last movie, with different text and a Russian landscape in the background, the rest of these posters look pretty darn cool. Check them out in the jump: (more…)
In a press release from FOX today they announced the release date for quite a few of their upcoming projects.

Los Angeles (May 31, 2012) __ Twentieth Century Fox announced today some major additions to its 2013-14 release slate, along with some date changes.
On the heels of the $344 million worldwide success of TITANIC 3D, the studio and director Roland Emmerich, in conjunction with Stereo 3D, which did the work on TITANIC, will produce a top quality 3D version of the iconic INDEPENDENCE DAY. ID43D will be released worldwide on July 3, 2013.
The studio also staked its 2014 summer with three giant tentpoles. First up, Fox, together with Disney and Dreamworks, has shifted the release of Steven Spielberg’s epic ROBOPOCALYPSE to go worldwide on April 25, 2014, the same weekend that “Avengers” was released internationally this year. Disney distributes domestically. (ID43D now occupies its former release date.)
Then on Memorial Day (May 23, 2014), Fox unleashes DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES worldwide, the sequel to the $483 million grossing RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the 2011 smash, returns to direct. The returning producers are Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
And on July 18, 2014, Fox releases worldwide the third of its summer tentpoles, the currently untitled X-MEN, to be directed by Matthew Vaughn.
