The New Percy Jackson Trailer

Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief has a new trailer. I think this one is much funnier and more exciting than the last two.

This one gives me confidence that the movie will have the same tone of the book. However, some things are still confusing me. Why is Persephone in this movie? It takes place in summer, so she should not be in the Underworld. Yet there she is. Uma Thurman as Medusa looks disappointing considering she just looks like beautiful Uma Thurman with hairsnakes instead of a hideous Gorgon. So much can be done with makeup and computers that I don't understand why the filmmakers would choose not to use them to a greater extent.

Brandon T. Jackson seems like the perfect choice for Grover, who is one of my favorite characters in the series. Also, I can't wait to see Percy fight with all of that water!


  1. Yes, I like Brandon as Grover now! I didn't like him at first, but he seems like the perfect choice! :) And Alex as Annabeth is ok too.

  2. I don't know what to think about Annabeth. We never get to see her do or say anything in the trailer! She's supposed to be a great girl character, but it seems like they are shoving her to the side.
