A sneak peek at "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" has been made available for viewing pleasure through its brand new teaser trailer. Less than two minutes long, the promotional video which comes out via Moviefone doesn't offer much but to give a look at main character Percy Jackson, Mount Olympus and how Percy reaches the mountain of the gods.

Discovering that he is the half-human son of the god of the sea, Poseidon, 12-year-old Percy learns that the legendary beings of Greek mythology still exist in Mount Olympus which is located on the mythical 600th floor of the Empire State Building. But, being one of the "Big Three" children, he is frequently put under attack by monsters.

In this adaptation of Rick Riordan's first novel in the "Percy Jackson & The Olympians" series, Percy goes on an adventure of a lifetime as he embarks on a journey across modern-day America to save his mother, return Zeus' stolen lightning bolt, and prevent a war between the gods.

"The Lightning Thief" stars "3:10 to Yuma" actor Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson. He will be supported by a star-studded cast that include Kevin McKidd, Rosario Dawson, Steve Coogan, Uma Thurman, Catherine Keener, Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean. Coming from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" helmer Chris Columbus, it is slated for February 12, 2010.

Yeah im pretty ticked that they couldnt even get a blonde to play annabeth... i mean, it isnt as if Alexandra was perfect for the part, because she isnt. But anyways, it bugging me what all you guys are saying about Grover being black, even if you arent racist, Brandon T Jackson so cool! Like, seriously, he is like amazing, even if hes not as hottt as Logan Lerman. But gosh, im dying for a role in this movie... hmm I think id be a cool Thalia if they dress me up goth, cause im not at the moment, but it would be cool for the movie! or Rachel, even though I hate her cause shes stealing Percy from Annabeth, she KISSES percy, so im fine with that as long as im her hahahah! Or Bianca, but she dies. No, I think Id be a great Artemis! Hahaha but Id be like lovinn Logan the whole time :P Anthing to do my favorite thing--- act, AND be by my dreaam (and hopefully future) husband, Logan Lerman The HOTTIE beyond belief!!! Hahaha Justin Bieber, you got NOTHIN on Logan Lerman! (ya know, all the girls these days are in LOVE with JB) Well, yeahhh and chill out guys and dont hate BTJ before you see him act :) Hes awesomeeee!!! --PercyLuverr -Haterzz

ok to everyone who is complaining about the characters ages: well, i was disappointed when i saw that they were WAY older than in the book and i told my mom about it and she said that she doesn't think a 12 year old could do all the things in the movie ex: the sword fighting. and i realized that she was right. how could they make the other movies if the characters are still like 12 or 13. that means they have to wait 1 year to film the next movie in the series.

Do you think that Jenessa girl really was cast? Or someone just put it there as a joke.
posted by Starlighter on Feb 13, 2010
It was probably a joke. But who knows. It might be real...stranger things have happened.
posted by AliceinBlunderland on Feb 11, 2010
Yeah it gets better, apprently they cast some indie actress to play Thalia! Has anyone heard of Jennesa Letourneau? I sure havent' and I can't find any refernce anywhere to any movie she's been in. It's rediculous!! There not even releasing pics of her!

its gonna suck no questions about that. i have no idea what rick riordian was thinking of but i really dont think the directors have even read the book personaly im not going to see the movie its gonna ruin my view of the awesome books however i do hope that one day rick riordan will sign some other directors and a diffrent company and hopefully it will be remade with actors of the right age group even if it does take a long time patience is a virtue and hopefully there will be a survey for the fans to decide the actors and for the main ones to be unknown and undiscovered actors instead of unfitting pretty faces that have 2 much publicity when that day will come i will watch the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've loved the series from the start. And even though (oh my gods) the casting may not be the best I am looking forward to seeing the movie. They'll probably use a lot of makeup on them as well, to make them look younger. I don't really mind all that much that annabeth is now brunette and that grover is black. Personally, I like the idea of grover being black. I dunno why, but I can already picture him in that rasta cap. They could always dye annabeth's hair to blonde if they wanted to, but who knows? I'm ok as long as it follows the story line and they make the film EPIC. Personally, I want them to make all 5 movies. The actors might get a little old looking though. huh. mabye next time when they're casting for a movie they'll look more towards the right age group.

Well, if you read Rick Riordan's blog, according to his son, who was the first to ever hear the story, Annabeth started out as a brunette.
posted by spiderman on Jul 24, 2009
but Anna Beth is like a mane person! that's like making harry potter blond! you just don't. SUCK! I was really exited for this movie. but now there making it suck!
posted by DaughterofZeus on Jul 23, 2009
Holy Hera!!! I agree that there were some mistakes in casting, and maybe it won't be exactly what all the fans were hoping for, but the sheer fact that this incredible book, and hopefully the whole series, is being put to the screen, is absolutely the best! GO PERCY JACKSON NERDS EVERYWHERE!!! (Can't wait to see who they cast as Thalia if they make Sea of Monsters, btw.)
