Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Damn that is a long title. AOL has just debuted the teaser trailer for Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief based on the book by Rick Riordan. 17-year-old Logan Lerman stars as Percy Jackson, a boy who discovers that he's the descendant of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods. While this does seem to play a bit more to the younger demographic, the one thing I am excited about is the return of the teaser that barely shows any real footage. Also, don't forget, as dark as this looks, it's actually a comedy - Sean Bean plays Zeus and Steve Coogan plays Hades.

Watch the teaser for Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief:

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is directed by Chris Columbus, of everything from Adventures in Babysitting to Home Alone to Mrs. Doubtfire to Bicentennial Man to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets to the Rent remake to I Love You Beth Cooper from this year. The screenplay was written by Craig Titley of Scooby-Doo and the two Cheaper by the Dozen movies previously. This is based on Rick Riordan's series of children's books. 20th Century Fox is bringing Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief to theaters everywhere on February 12th, 2010 next year. Thoughts?

    The books were so great; I hope the movie(s?) can live up to them.
  • -Peter-
    this could be good...
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Is that the kid from Reign of Fire with Christan Bale?
  • xerxex
    Sean Bean plays Zeus and Steve Coogan plays Hades, nuff' said. sold. # 7 no its Logan Lerman the kid from the Butterfly Effect, and 3:10 to Yuma, to me he looks looks a little bit like Christian Slater. anyone? anyone?
    • Happyonna
      Hey, I thought they were related!  lol 
  • He tries so hard…
    Hm...why is everything in NYC? lol
  • This is intriguing!
  • solider
    even the title looks like Harry Potter lol But it looks very interesting.
  • I am Zeus! No, I am Hercules! :) The teaser looks good. Cool special effects and the kid without the glasses looks modern. I think this movie will help Marvel´s THOR movie. Oh no, damn Thor ist nordic and not greek... :)
  • ah... why cant Chuck Norris be Zeus?
  • Fisherr
    I like Logan Lerman he has a bright career ahead of him.
  • SuicidalOptimist
    #8 Ohhh, that's right. I mixed him up with the Reign of Fire kid when I watched 3:10 to Yuma, too. I guess I could have just IMDB'd it. 😉 Thanks! =)
  • DoomCanoe
    meh... i think?
  • FrObOy21
    it looks cool and the castle or whatever it was looked like hogwarts
  • xerxex
    welcome IMDB was my source. Never lets me down!
  • Drew
    Chris Columbus - Director of the two WORST Potter movies. But maybe they will just use him to set up the franchise, thereby guaranteeing every subsequent film a knockout by comparison. His last good film was Mrs. Doubtfire. Remember? Back when Robin Williams was funny....
  • Drew
    oh, and not a comedy the books are children's fantasy ala Potter. Not sure where you got the comedy reference Mr. Billington. This is NOT "Night at the Museum" type material. If Columbus goes that route with it, many a book fan will disown this film and any further movies. ugh, Columbus.......
  • Oblong
    # 19 what? I'll give you the first HP movie yeah that was not good but his second HP wasn't that bad. Did you forget Home Alone that movie was amazing! ugh, ughers...
  • Alfredo
    Meh. The movie might end up being interesting but the teaser is crap. Even tho it was only a minute long, I was bored halfway through.
  • Caitie
    # 19 What's wrong with the first Harry Potter movies? I love them but I don't know about the teaser, it didn't blow me away.
  • Hyacinth
    Looks very cool. Effects are great. Definitely will see.
  • Cindarr
    Dont want to have any expectations on this just yet. Was hoping someone would make a mt olympus story gods and heroes. I hope this movie is not about a kid saving the world.
  • Vic
    @ #25, Basic premise is close to that, the kid is preventing war between the gods.
  • ?????
    I love love love the books and this teaser got me soo excited!
  • d
    If this is really a comedy, people wont think it is. This trailer reminds me of the Avatar trailer. How it centers around the boy, then shows you this massive geographical standpoint. Ill probably see it.
  • Drew
    Oblong, Yup, I remember Home Alone. Great Film. But that came out BEFORE Mrs. Doubtfire, which is, as stated in my original comment, his last good movie. ugh, anti-ughers who can't read.
  • Ajax
    Whoa, the teaser at least looks epic.
  • quez
    omg this looks good im gunna go c this but if the movie is nuthin like the bokk ima sue the director ...............................j.k. lol
  • Jason K
    another shitty flick by the looks of the trailer. harry potter has already set the bar. Why eat re-microwaved pizza when you have the fresh stuff coming out of the oven already.
  • tankmaster
    This looks like a bad version of Harry Potter.
  • Givorden
    Really...? Mount Olympus... in New York...USA? ...whats wrong with Greece?
  • Oblong
    ugh the ugher, who ughs at the anti-ugher who can't read! and besides he also directed Nine Months!...oh yeah that movie, yeah...you win, Drew. Ugh thread fights, that I lose...:(
  • Drew
    Oblong, The agony of defeat must be AGONIZING! Sucker! Today's lesson: Don't take someone to task in such a snarky way without reading the comment fully first. Remember that and you'll save face and only get better at thread fights. Which is basically a training ground for marriage. lesson over. I only kid. thanks for playing Oblong. Until we meet again.......
  • Oblong
    haha Drew, way to kick me when I'm down! I love the marriage comparison.
  • Fac
    I don't know, this 1st trailer doen't show you much so I can't really say what I think of it yet, but I do like fantasy books so I hope its good... I have a bad feeling it'll be bad though... hope I'm worng. I'm worried about the screenplay...
  • random person
    omg it looks awesome. i just hope they don't ruin the books (they're amazing and funny)... AND FOR ALL U SHIT HEADS WHO THINK ITS GONNA BE "a bad version of Harry potter" and "meh.." WELL THINK AGAIN! LOGAN LERMAN IS AWESOME! SO HA... i will definitely see it.
  • Jake
    Why are you people so hyped up about Chris Columbus's interpretation of The Lightning Thief? It's just a movie. It's not going to kill you all. I will see this movie as long as it follows the book's storyline. I don't really care about the characters (since Rick said Annabeth was originally brunette).
  • Alex C.
    Last time I checked, Mount Olympus was in Greece, not in the States. And you cannot access it via the Empire State Building lifts. You just sacrifice a white goat. WTF, no respect for the Gods you Yankees. This said, the teaser is... teasing. Let's see what follows.
  • The books are great I hope the movie is to.
  • Sydney Y.
    I am so excited to watch the movie!:) I love the books and its going to so awesome!!!!!!!!
  • Tasany F.

  • thehappypessemist
    why doesnt anybody talk any more ^ ^ . . ___
  • sarah
    Mmmm I love it when people comment about a movie was a book first. Read the fucking book before you see the movie and stop asking moronic questions *cough* #42. The series is awesome and hopefully the movie will be too.
  • marcus
    it doesnt look twelve he looks sixteen which means the prophecy already happened
  • Eve'
    This would SUCK as a comedy. ;l If Chris Columbus doesn't do justice to the books, im going to hunt him down and murder him personally.
  • percy looks like hes in 10th grade when he suppose to be in 6th grade
  • aliya
    WHY IS PERCY LIKE 17, HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE 12!!! AND ANNABETH IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE CURLY BLONDE HAIR!!! Grover is ok but, every one else doesnt match there character! posidon is skinny, =( i imagined him to be a bit bulkier. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD!!!
  • I finished reading the book the other day and well i wanted to read it before watching the movie... and i gotta be honest it kinda sucked.... I mean it was alright.. But now im reading the reviews and it seems to me like its just the same as the book... they could have changed it a little to make it better.. gotta say im a lil disappointed
