Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief isn't my most anticipated movie this spring, but after the last full trailer, I am very interested in checking it out, in hopes of discovering a new Harry Potter-like franchise. Latino Review recently came across three new character posters for the movie which I've featured below. I like the dark, epic design of these posters, and I like that they're not going with the floating head close-up for once. I'm not sure if these are officially being released or put up in theaters, but they are cool to see. And as for these three characters, I think each one of them is the son of a Greek god.
Percy Jackson & 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 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 this spring. Will you see it?
yeah, i like them too....but one of them isn't a child of a greek god....

I actually like the posters. I know nothing about this franchise but I'm banking It's going to be the next big thing for the young adult audience. With Harry Potter coming to an end, they need something to look forward too.

#1: Yes, you should read more...All of them are as #3 pointed it! #2: You must be from the same school as #4, that won't bring you far! #4: it's called "hating", you ignorant! #5: That's called "wishing", stop that! 🙂 #... Who respond to my post: Stay Blessed! It has the potential of a great franchise and that's it!

Well since Chris Columbus is directing i will steer clear. #7 - "you ignorant" that doesn't make sense.

#3 & #7 Gover is not a Greek god nor the son of one either. maybe YOU should read the books.

I think what was trying to be said is that not all 3 are SONS of greek gods. One's a girl unless thats a crazy looking dude... I'm actually looking forward to this. Never heard of the books but I like the premise.

Well if ya folks look closely at Grover's poster you can see he doesn't have extra baggy jeans on but Satyr legs. Aha I have never read the books and I figured that one out 😉

Can't believe America keeps trying to turn Greek Mythology into American Mythology. Is that New York? ahahaha

Grover's a satyr - half goat, half man. He's not the child of a God. Percy is the son of Poseidon and Annabeth is the daughter of Athena. My brother loved the books and I read them this last summer. They're actually quite clever and fun. They made me laugh out loud sometimes. I just hope they make a good transition into film.

I can't take this movie seriously coz it's Alpa Chino, Mr. Booty Sweat, himself, playing a high school kid.

You thought I left... here we go again... #9 You are too ignorant to understand it, that's why it doesn't make sense...Wait till you grow up! #10 and #14 : A satyr, is a lesser deity, I am not only refering to what is depicted in the books. Eros aka cupid is sometimes refered to as a satyr. Come on,do your own bit of research guys. Don't take a hand out from the writer(s) of the books #14 : Yes, Trust the director and besides, you've seen the trailers...
