That makes two back-to-back adaptations of Ya sensations: “Unfortunate Events,” novelist Snicket’s hit series about the unlucky Baudelaire kiddies, and “Lightning Thief,” the first novel in Rick Riordan’s megaselling “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” about a teen who discovers he’s the son of the Greek god Poseidon. Both are also series that have received previous screen adaptations — “Unfortunate Events” in 2004 and “Lightning Thief” in 2010 — that never caught fire in the way the books did.
“They’re both properties that had movie adaptations that didn’t capture
Wait, who are we kidding…this is Maddy and this is my review. Anya hasn’t even finished the first Percy Jackson book yet (but if you would like to talk about BuzzFeed & Scream Queens, she’s your girl).
The first book in the Magnus Chase series has Mr. Riordan taking on Norse Mythology as we follow a 16 year old homeless Boston boy on an adventure after finding out his dad is the god Frey. This is a spoiler-free review, so instead of spilling the plot details, I compare this Loki to Tom Hiddleston’s version in the McU and I tell you about what this Thor likes to binge watch.
This week we bring you the finals of the 2015 Talking in Circles March Badness Bracket. Yes, that’s right in this episode we determine who is truly the biggest badass for this year, and if you thought last episode was full of random fun…you ain’t see nothing yet. Let’s just say we truly make some history on this week’s show. It’s not all badass talk as Chuck review’s Liam Liam Neeson’s new movie Run All Night and Greg takes a look at a new book from Rick Riordan. Before the show ends we

Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.
Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.
Over the weekend, Variety reported:
The 20th Century Fox release racked up a strong $8.3 million across five markets last weekend, with debuts that compared favorably to another young adult hit, “Divergent.” “The Maze Runner” is
Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? Percy Jackson provides an insider’s view with plenty of ‘tude in this illustrated collection.
A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods, and I was like, Can we do this anonymously? Because I don’t need the Olympians mad at me again. But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week.
Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods rather unexpectedly dropped through my door, I’d never requested to review it as I had never read a Percy Jackson book. Don’t get me wrong I’m not anti-Percy and pro-Harry,
At first, Riordan’s book might seem like an unlikely choice for a stage-musical adaptation. Percy’s sarcastic, wry sense of humor, for example, may not work well with the big,
So, it wasn’t that surprising when, a few days ago, star Logan Lerman reportedly told MTV that Percy Jackson 3 is “not happening.” However, Lerman proceeded to
The 22-year-old actor shot to fame as the title character in 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief", but the box office performance of the film, based on author Rick Riordan's book series of the same name, didn't live to its makers' expectation, reports contactmusic.com.
Together with the 2013 follow-up, "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters", the two films raked in more than $420 million globally, but it seems that it was not enough for studio executives to warrant a third film.
The Noah star took on the title role in 2010's fantasy film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and last year's sequel Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
However, the actor claimed that a film based on the third novel in series Percy Jackson: The Titan's Curse will not be moving forward.
"It's been a great experience for me," Lerman told MTV. "It's opened up a lot of doors for me, but I don't think it's happening."
The Percy Jackson movies - based on Rick Riordan's novels - earned more than $420 million at the worldwide box office.

The second movie adaptation of Rick Riordan‘s best-selling fantasy novels, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters finds the group of mythically challenged teens on a new adventure.
Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) stars again as the titular Percy, son of Greek god Poseidon. When their beloved Camp Half-Blood starts to die, Percy and his friends, including satyr Grover (Brandon T. Jackson, Get a Job), must go on a journey to find the famed Golden Fleece to save the day. The problem is, they have to go through the sea of monsters, battle terrifying creatures and get past an army of zombies.
Alexandra Daddario (Hall Pass), Stanley Tucci (Margin Call) and Nathan Fillion (Much Ado About Nothing) also are in the PG movie, which
Set in Greek mythology, "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" is the second film adapted from Rick Riordan's book series "Percy Jackson and the Olympian". It is a light adventure film with degrees of magic, mystery, romance and comedy.
The film begins with a foreword stating that the Greek gods had many children, some of whom were half humans who were easy to terrorise. The prelude features four kids - half human.
For those who either missed the last Percy Jackson adventure or have forgotten the series’ set-up in the strangely long lapse between this and 2010′s The Lightning Thief, Percy (Logan Lerman) is the teenaged, demigod son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. He resides at Camp Half-Blood (a blatant Harry Potter lift, but honestly, what isn’t in these kinds of movies?) with his friends, all also descended from Greek gods and goddesses.
This time around, Percy and his friends are forced to embark on a quest for the Golden Fleece, located in
