Several character banners have been released for the upcoming fantasy film, Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. The film will hit theaters next month on February 12, 2010. Many of you are fans of the books and are anticipating the release of the first film, so without further ado check out the latest posters of Percy and his sidekicks Annabeth and Grover…
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 isn’t that young, so it’s safe to assume that he’s more along the 16 or 17 mark. Also the hair color and race of a few characters have been changed for cinematic purposes.
There are a lot of readers who have been commenting on the various differences between the movie and the book. But you have to admit that these posters look pretty bad ass. They remind me of the Harry Potter promos with the dark blue tone, and coincidentally the film is actually produced by the same people who worked on Potter, so some similarities should be expected.
