‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ First Look: Stanley Tucci in Leopard Print!
Though 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief' did not reach the lofty heights of the 'Harry Potter' series in terms of box office or cultural impact (which it surely strived for), it still made a decent $220 million worldwide, with another $37 million in DVD/Blu-ray sales. Hence, it's sequel time, and the first look at the film 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' has come in the form of five new photos.
The new images don't offer much in the way of excitement, unless you count Stanley Tucci's amazing shirt in the above pic. Why they didn't call this 'Percy Jackson and the Curse of the Leopard Print' is beyond us. Tucci is playing the god of wine, Dionysus, who is forbidden to drink by Zeus. That's a cruel fate, but we're sure Tucci makes the most of it.
In the other images, you can see Logan Lerman as the titular hero (who happens to be the son of Poseidon), Alexandra Daddario as Percy's galpal Annabeth and Brandon T. Jackson as Percy's satyr buddy Grover. Not shown are Sean Bean, Nathan Fillian, Anthony Stewart Head, Missi Pyle and Derek Mears.
In 'Sea of Monsters,' Percy Jackson embarks on another quest, this time to save his homeland/training grounds, Camp Half-Blood. To do so, he must travel through the Sea of Monsters to claim the Golden Fleece, but along the way he encounters enemies -- both new and old.
