The first trailer dropped last month, giving us a good first look at Logan’s return for the sequel. And with the film’s August release date on the horizon, Fox have debuted the second trailer over on Apple.
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.
Lerman takes the lead alongside Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Sean Bean, Nathan Fillion, Stanley Tucci, Jake Abel, Anthony Head, Douglas Smith, and Leven Rambin.
Thor Freudenthal is directing from a script penned by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Man on the Moon, The People vs. Larry Flynt) and Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern).
Side-note: How awesome is the name Thor Freudenthal?
Due out in the first weekend of August, Sea of Monsters will be facing some very tough competition at the box office, with Elysium, We’re the Millers, Disney’s Planes, Metallica Through the Never, and Prince Avalanche all opening that weekend in the US, and Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, The Lone Ranger, and Grown Ups 2 all opening on our shores. It’s sure to be a big weekend for the industry, and it will be interesting to see which films rise in a few months’ time.
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will be released in theatres on August 7th in the US and UK.
