With 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' only a few months away, it's time that we got down to brass tacks and started asking the important questions. Questions like "Was anyone, anywhere, actually looking forward to another 'Percy Jackson' movie?" Snark aside, the new 'Sea of Monsters' trailer goes a long way to justifying its existence by showing off lots of monsters. Lots and lots of monsters.
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters
'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' is the second film in a franchise that arrived with a shrug back in 2010. Can it grab the audience that ignored the first film? Can it fill the void left by the insanely successful 'Harry Potter' franchise? We won't know until later this summer.
But hey, there's a new poster!
Demigod Percy Jackson and his friends must set out through the "Sea of Monsters" to acquire the Golden Fleece and save his homeland.
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.
It's easy to see a release date move as just card shuffling, but a movie's success or failure is often linked to when it comes out. Would 'Battleship' and 'Dark Shadows' tanked as hard as they did if they weren't caught in the wake of 'The Avengers?' We now have new release dates for 'The Lone Ranger,' 'Thor 2' 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' and more.
