An international trailer has been released for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.  The follow-up finds Percy (Logan Lerman) and his friends venturing to a mythical land known as the Sea of Monsters to retrieve a golden fleece that is essential to the survival of his home and other demigods.  The trailer shows the plethora of action on display.  The villain is the father of the gods, Kronos, with an assist from the previous film’s villain, Luke (Jake Abel).  Like the first movie, there’s a hodgepodge of Greek mythology that brings in the Cyclops, the Golden Fleece, and other icons.  I am a huge fan of the books and the original film.  Much like the Harry Potter franchise, Percy Jackson got better and more serious with each novel.  If the films stay true to the novels, Kronos or the specter of his return will remain the main antagonist going forward.  That assumes of course that Sea of Monsters performs well enough to continue the series.

The film also stars Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson,Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion, Douglas Smith, Leven Rambin, Missi Pyle, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Mary Birdsong.  Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters opens in 3D on August 16th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters:

Based on the best-selling book, PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS continues the young demigod’s epic journey to fulfill his destiny. To save their world, Percy and his friends must find the fabled and magical Golden Fleece. Embarking on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters (known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle), they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate Evil.
