An international poster has just been released for Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. We got such an overwhelming response from fans regarding the extended trailer a couple weeks ago, that we had to follow up. The latest poster features Percy summoning the powers of his father in what looks like a climactic scene from the film.
The film centers on Poseidon’s son, a 12-year-old boy, who sets out on a quest in present-day America to rescue his mother, return Zeus’ stolen lightning bolt and prevent a civil war from erupting among the gods. As you can see, the actor in the lead role is not a 12 year old, so it’s safe to assume that they age him a bit in the movie. Also, we’ve heard from many of our readers that the character Annabeth is supposed to be blonde not brunette, which is true. Keep your concerns coming!
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief will be directed by Chris Columbus and stars Logan Lerman as the title character. The film is scheduled for a domestic release on February 12, 2010, which means that it will be knocking on Valentine’s Day weekend. How many of you are going to be all over that?
As promised, here’s the poster:
