New “Percy Jackson And The Olympians: The Lightning Thief” Trailer

— Posted by John Campea

As we have mentioned here before, there is a new film coming in 2010 from Chris Columbus (the director of such films as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Mrs. Doubtfire, Rent, Home Alone and several others) titled “Percy Jackson And The Olympians: The Lightning Thief“. The film (which the studio hopes to turn into a franchise) is based on the popular five-book Percy Jackson & The Olympians series.

The movie revolves around a young boy who discovers that he is actually the half human son of the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon. The story them follows him as he tries to find his mother and the stolen lightning bolt of the high god Zeus… all while trying to prevent a civil war amongst the gods.

Now, there is a new trailer for the film online which can be seen here:

Hey, I admit it, I actually think this looks pretty damn good for a soft type fantasy film. What do you think? Next Harry Potter franchise or just another throw away kids fantasy film?

    i think the movie will be bad
    not just because of the trailer
    but because movie directors are killing moviex that were meant to be good
    look at harry potter 5 it sucked so badly i actually fell asleep,
    look at spiderwick, eragon which by the way will not have a second ,movie
    and you know when u say u could do a better job than the director but u dont think it could actually happen?
    well ppl it is happenning
    and by the way the actors are bad for this film they r either too old, or not fitting 4 their rolls
    so just bu looking at the list of actors i know 4 sure the movie will suck!
