'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' trailer with Nathan Fillion

Posted on

When last we saw dyslexic demigod Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), the son of Poseidon and his two best friends, Annabeth (a daughter of Athena, played by Alexandra Daddario) and Grover (a half-man, half-goat satyr, played by Brandon T. Jackson), were riding high after successfully tracking down Zeus’s stolen lightning bolt. But in this upcoming sequel to Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief, the trio find themselves tasked with completing another mythological labor — one that will take them all the way to the Bermuda Triangle, a.k.a. the titular Sea of Monsters.

As the second Percy Jackson movie begins, all is not well at the demigod safe haven known as Camp Half-Blood. The wicked Cronus — father of Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon — is threatening to rise again and exact his vengeance on those who overthrew him. Only one thing can stop him: the Golden Fleece, a prize once sought by Jason and his Argonauts. Though Percy’s journey to capture the fleece won’t be easy, it will at least be populated by tons of colorful characters — including Stanley Tucci as wine god Dionysus and Nathan Fillion as the tricky messenger god Hermes. Catch the trailer below.

Greek Week is coming this summer — Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters hits theaters August 16.
