Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Teaser

Uh, could this title be any longer? Here is the first teaser for Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. This movie is based on the book by Rick Riordan and directed by Chris Columbus, whose credits include Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secrets and my personal favorite Adventures in Babysitting. It's a story about a 17 year old boy who discovers that he's the descendant of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods. It reminds me a lot of Stardust (excellent movie btw). Despite the dark feel to this film it's actually a comedy.

I really wish Hollywood would go back to JUST teasers. Most trailers give entirely too much away before hand, hence forth ruining the element of surprise - ex. Bruno. It would be nice if this was the only teaser we saw before the movie, but sadly I feel they will show a lot more footage prior to the films release date - February 12, 2010. With that being said enjoy the teaser.



Look any good?...

I admit, this trailer didn't do much for me when I saw it in the theater, but I'm a big Chris Columbus fan and love fantasy adventure movies, so I'll probably love it.

SO with you about the oversharing trailers. Take it bach a notch, Hollywood.
