Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010) - News Poster


'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' Trailer Premiere: Blanket Will Save Us All

MTV and NextMovie are happy to give you your first look at the first trailer for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and boy, do these kids want this blanket something fierce.

In the sequel to 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,"  Percy (Logan Lerman) and all his demigod friends are back. After rescuing Zeus' all-powerful lightning bolt in the series' first installment, Percy and Co. (including Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith and more, including "The Host"'s Jake Abel as scowly demigod Luke) must recover a golden fleece, which will save their home, Camp Half-Blood, from the Bad Guys (and, one assumes, the shivers).

Check out the trailer, above, for all kinds of cool effects (fire! Swords! Intrigue! Adventure!), friendly teen competition (looks like Leven Rambin, as Clarisse La Rue, gives our favorite wallflower demigod a run for his money) and, of course, a desperate search for fleece.

New Pics From The Sequel You Forgot Was Happening: 'Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters'

If you barely remember “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” we don’t blame you. It came out over three years ago and raked in only $88 million in the domestic box office, making a large majority of its money in the foreign market. So now we have the sequel, “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters,” which comes out this summer and the first images from the movie have just landed online. Hopefully, viewing these photos will help refresh your memory regarding the franchise. The movie stars Logan Lerman (“Perks of Being a Wallflower”) as well as Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion, Missi Pyle, Mary Birdsong, and Brandon T. Jackson (“Tropic Thunder, the new "Beverly Hills Cop").

Sounds exciting.For those

First Images From Percy Jackson 2

First Images From Percy Jackson 2
It all went a bit quiet for Percy Jackson following the release of The Lightning Thief in 2010. The adaptation of the first in Rick Riordan's young adult series didn't quite break even during its Us run, but its performance overseas persuaded Fox to move ahead with a sequel nonetheless. Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters is the result, once again starring Logan Lerman and co., and the first few stills have just arrived online. Thor Freudenthal (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid) is the director this time, with Chris Columbus taking a back seat as producer along with Twilight's Karen Rosenfelt. Sea Of Monsters, logically based on the second of Rick Riordan's series of Percy Jackson novels, has been adapted by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Agent Cody Banks, 1408), and sees Percy (Logan Lerman) and Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) on an Argonaut-ical quest to find the Golden Fleece and rescue Grover

'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors

'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a habit of casting actors on the cusp of fame, be they Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in 1994′s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Jessica Biel in the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper’s original classic shocker, or Matt Bomer in 2006′s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The latest thespian hoping to benefit from what we’re going to call “the Chainsaw bump” is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who plays the heroine in Texas Chainsaw 3D, which arrives in cinemas this Friday.

Below, the actress talks about facing off against the iconic Leatherface,

Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth Join Darren Aronofsky’s Noah

Earlier today, we learned that Ridley Scott is planning on making a big screen adaptation of the Moses story titled Moses, but a Biblical epic of a different sort is already gearing up to shoot. Director Darren Aronofsky has already set Russell Crowe in the titular lead role for Noah, and now Deadline reports that Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) and Douglas Booth have been cast as the Biblical figure’s sons. We previously heard that Jennifer Connelly might join the cast, and the report notes that while the role of Noah’s wife has yet to be filled, Connelly is definitely in the mix. Hit the jump for more. Though Liam Neeson had been mentioned for the film’s antagonist role, Deadline notes that he’s no longer involved with the project (sigh). Booth, who stars opposite Hailee Steinfeld in the upcoming Romeo and Juliet, will

'Percy Jackson and the Olympians' Sequel Could Be Coming Soon?

Though director Chris Columbus may be lining up a remake to the Korean film Hello Ghost, that doesn't mean the franchise he kicked off isn't moving forward. 24 Frames reports Fox is beginning to develop a sequel to Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, the adaptation of the first book in a five-book series from Rick Riordan. This time around the second book, The Sea of Monsters, would be Percy Jackson's subtitle and adventure. While Columbus probably won't come back as a director, he will still produce. In addition, Logan Lerman is indeed expected to reprise the titular role of the demigod hero.

Academy announces seven visual-effects finalists
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which last month narrowed down the Best Visual Effects category to 15 semifinalists, has announced the seven films that remain in the running for a nomination. They are: Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Hereafter, Inception, Iron Man 2, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Tron: Legacy.

The Family Have Taken Charge Of Cinema

  • HeyUGuys
As has been widely reported, Harry Potter made a massive impact at the box office in the last few weeks, and continues to do so. Success was inevitable, and the level of success predictable. Harry Potter is one of the most popular book series of all time, appealing to fans both young and old. All previous installments in the Harry Potter movie series have made hundreds of millions of dollars, and with the finale in sight, anyone with even a passing interest in the boy who lived wants to see how it all ends.

The success of Harry Potter financially, particularly in the case of Deathly Hallows, is also however part of a much bigger movie trend. We have seen, in the last year particularly, an apparent rise in the popularity of the family movie. Whilst in the past it has been big, effects heavy action movies that have been the big hitters,

  • HeyUGuys
Hollywood’s search for a new Harry Potter-alike has enjoyed few triumphs to date.

Comingsoon are reporting that Jessica Postigo’s script, which is based on the first installment of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling book series – City of Bones, incorporates the usual assortment of demons, eccentric warlocks and werewolf packed into a contemporary New York setting.

When ordinary teenager with extraordinary name Clary Fray’s mother disappears, she must embrace her calling as a Shadow Hunter in order to save the day. Snap.

First Look Photos of Paul W.S. Anderson's The Three Musketeers

Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil: Afterlife has yet to reach theaters, but the writer/director is already at work on another movie. This time, Anderson is adapting Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers, meaning that despite Anderson continuing to shoot in 3-D, he will switch from a post-apocalyptic zombie landscape to 17th Century France.

Anderson admitted earlier this month that making another Musketeers isn't the change of pace that many people would expect for the director of Death Race. The latest set photos from ComingSoon reveal a comfortable Anderson amongst the Bamburg, Germany location. Also pictured are Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) in costume as D'Artagnan, and Mads Mikkelssen (Clash of the Titans) as the villain Rochefort, both with eyepatch and without.

The Three Musketeers opens April 15, 2011, and also stars Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Matthew Macfadyen, Milla Jovovich and Christoph Waltz.

Who will play Superman in Christopher Nolan's 2012 reboot?

In December 2012, a new Superman will soar on to the big screen, with Christopher Nolan producing and his brother Jonathan Nolan teaming up with David Goyer to write the screenplay.

At one point it was said Chris Columbus (Harry Potter 1 & 2, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) was offered the chance to direct but that proved to be a baseless rumour and it seems Jonathan Nolan is in line to helm the feature in what would be his directing debut.

The one major missing ingredient is who will be playing the new Clark Kent/Superman.

But that hasn't stopped the speculation. Here we take a look at the candidates and give you the chance to vote on your favourite.

Chuck star Zachary Levi was said to have auditioned for the role, but he later dismissed the reports, telling IGN: "It's complete fiction. I start getting these text messages from my friends,

Playing a god is a tall order for Kevin McKidd

Kevin McKidd may have missed getting the role of Thor in Kenneth Branagh's new film but he ended up portraying another god instead.

The Scottish actor moved from Norse to Greek mythology to take on the role of sea deity Poseidon in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, released on DVD and Blu-ray earlier this month.

The 36-year-old is no stranger to characters of the historical and ancient world. Among his many other credits are Kingdom of Heaven, set in the 12th century; The Last Legion, set in the 5th century; and as Lucius Vorenus in the HBO/BBC series Rome, set in the 1st century BC.

He told us he hoped he had brought some of his "Scottish, Celtic fieriness" to the role of the gigantic Poseidon, who we first meet startling a fisherman as he emerges from the sea. It was a scene that wasn't as simple as it looked.

Is Steve Coogan Heading Off To The Great Beyond?

Looks like Steve Coogan isn't giving up on his movie career just yet, despite a number of false starts.

The Brit comic, last seen on the big screen in Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief, is apparently eyeing up a movie remake of his one-off BBC comedy-drama, Cruise Of The Gods.

Originally aired in 2002, it told the story of a group of actors from a once-famous sci-fi show who reunite on a cruise with their fans only for long-buried petty jealousies and unresolved rivalries to rear their ugly heads once more. It starred the likes of Rob Brydon, David Walliams and James Corden, but at present only Coogan has signed up to reprise his role in the remake which is tentatively going by the title, The Great Beyond.

David Guion and Michael Handelman, who penned the upcoming Steve Carell/Paul Rudd comedy Dinner For Schmucks, have been named as the screenwriters.

Movie role was hell for comedian Steve Coogan

Steve Coogan has been speaking of how he went to the depths of hell for his most recent movie role.

Funnyman Steve - who is returning to TV in a new BBC2 series - played Hades, god of the underworld, in fantasy adventure Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, now out on DVD and Blu-ray.

Hades' hellish lair was located underneath Hollywood in the film, based on Rick Riordan's children's books and starring Logan Lerman as a troubled schoolboy who finds out his father is Poseidon. Also in the film are Sean Bean as Zeus, Uma Thurman as Medusa and Pierce Brosnan as Chiron the centaur.

Coogan described his role as "a doddle". He said: "I got to turn up, spend a week in Vancouver, I got to kiss Rosario Dawson who played my wife Persephone, and when you've got all these visual effects around you half of the job is done for you.
