Those crazy kids of Gods are back in “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”, which finds Poseidon’s kid and his buddies (including the girl with the gorgeous eyes) heading into the titular Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece in order to restore their safe haven.
Whatever that means.
Point is, it’s the sequel to a successful teen adventure (the first one cleared $226 million worldwide on a $95 million budget) based on a popular series of Young Adult novels, and if you’ve been paying attention, Hollywood has a thing for movie franchises based on Young Adult novels these days. They’re really, really obsessed with them — sorta like a 13-year old girl and her YA books, if you will — is what I’m trying to say.
Anyways, check out five images from the upcoming movie. The film is directed by one Thor Freudenthal, who, disappointingly, looks nothing like Chris Hemsworth’s Thor. I mean, it’s not even close. This Thor wears glasses and looks kinda nerdy. He’s also the director of “Hotel for Dogs”, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”, and previously helmed the kinda cool web series “Aim High”.
“Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” also stars Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Sean Bean, Nathan Fillion, Stanley Tucci, Jake Abel, Missi Pyle, Daniel Cudmore, Leven Rambin, Anthony Head, and it arrives this August 16, 2013.
