We are now less than a month away from the release date of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters!!!  Sure, there’re still a lot of Percy Jackson fans out there unsure of this sequel to the first film, but I’m optimistic!  And on the official Percy Jackson Facebook page, they’ve recently posted these stills:

The movie brings back some of the original actors to reprise their roles – Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson, Alexandra Daddario as (a blond) Annabeth Chase, Brandon T. Jackson as Grover Underwood, and Jake Abel as Luke Castellan.  There are also some new faces to the sequel – Anthony Head as Chiron (a role originally played by Pierce Brosnan), Stanley Tucci as Dionysius, Nathan Fillion as Hermes, and Leven Rambin as Clarisse La Rue.

The movie is scheduled to open in theaters on Wednesday, August 7th!

Percy Jackson: SEA OF MONSTERS Trailer 2 Gives Us More Hermes, Luke, and Others!

pj-som-still-06For those still unsure about how much more true the movie Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will be to the book, as compared to the first movie, maybe a 2nd trailer will help you have a better idea.

I must say that if Nathan Fillion is in it, then it must be better!  And it’s nice you get to see more of him as Hermes in this trailer, as well as Jake Abel as Luke Castellan, Anthony Head as Chiron, and rainbow ponies!

What do you think now?


‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ Moves Release Date Up

Did you hear the good news?  We’ll get to see Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, Grover, and the rest of the Camp Half-Blood one week earlier than originally planned!  Yep, that’s right.   Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will now open in theaters on August 7th instead of August 16th.

You PJatO fans have already been giving some positive, maybe sometimes cautiously optimistic, comments on this sequel to Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.  Some of you may have even wondered how it’s possible they agreed to go ahead with a second movie, considering that many of you did not like how the first book was adapted, but enough wondering and just accept.  It’s happening, and you’re going to get to see it.

We’ll have the return of actors Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, and Brandon T. Jackson, the three friends on their search for the Golden Fleece this time around.  Jake Abel will also return as Luke Castellan, the demigod that betrayed Percy in the first film.  Joining them are Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Leven Rambin, Missi Pyle, Daniel Cudmore, Yvette Nicole Brown, Grey Damon, and Douglas Smith, who will be playing Tyson, a cyclops that Percy befriends.

Anthony Head To Replace Pierce Brosnan As Chiron

The Hollywood Reporter released an article announcing that former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Merlin” star will be replacing Pierce Brosnan as Chiron in the sequel, Sea of Monsters.

Anthony Head is familiar with the trainer/teacher role as he played that role as Giles in Buffy for about 7 years, and he played it well.  Some can say they found Giles to be quite attractive in a way, and of course it doesn’t hurt to have a British accent.

I think this role would be good for him, however, I’m curious as to how he’ll transition the role from the way Pierce portrayed Chiron into that of his own.

With Nathan Fillion portraying Hermes, I was ecstatic for him and this movie because he’s such a familiar presence in the geekdom and I was hoping that will boost the interest in this movie.  So, with Anthony joining the cast, it’s just another reason for the geekdom, who should be familiar with Head as well, to take interest.

Anthony has been recently seen in the Fantasy TV series, Merlin, as well as on the big screen in the movie The Iron Lady (well, I guess he was also in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, but we won’t talk about that.)

What do you think?  Do you think Anthony will take over the role well enough, or that Pierce should’ve come back?  I for one don’t mind the change.
