PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF Movie Teaser Trailer
Check out the trailer for PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF starring Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Sean Bean, Rosario Dawson, Catherine Keener, Kevin McKidd, Steve Coogan, and directed by Chris Columbus.
I really didn’t expect to see anything from the movie this soon, but this is really exciting. The director behind the first two Harry Potter movies is taking on the next big series of books, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. So far I have read the first three books and really like them.
That teaser looks way better than what I expected. Logan Lerman so far looks like a really great Percy, but I already thought he did when his casting was announced. We don’t see Alexandra Daddario, who plays Annabeth, in the teaser, so we still don’t know how they are going to pass off a 23 year old for a 12 year old. I just hope they don’t change the story too much otherwise this could turn out to be the new “Eragon” (which did really bad at the box office, because unfortunately the movie was nowhere as good as the book), instead of the new “Harry Potter.”
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief will be released to theaters on February 12, 2010. Watch the trailer below.
