File 14132

Out of all the books-to-movies to come out this year.... Percy is the one to make me jump in my seat with impatience.

I like me some action and adventure, and the Percy books always delivered. The first movie was good... but I'm excited to see how Percy and co have grown up. I also think this movie will be a little 'darker' (aka the scare factor will be higher!) and I can't help but wait with baited breath for it.

What do you think of the trailer? Personally the look-like-sharks-but-aren't creatures freaked me out. I'd doggie paddle out of there in a heartbeat!

Gah, I didn't like the first movie (at least, not compared to the book). Though this one does look more promising. Like ambivalence said, as the daughter of Athena, Annabeth was meant to have blonde hair and gray eyes. I don't understand why that was so difficult to achieve the first time. :/

@Adele - that REALLY annoyed me in the first movie. Blonde hair is such a simple thing to manage, why couldn't they just get that right the first time? >.<

That being said, I don't think I'd watch the PJ movies hoping for them to match up entirely with the novels... I think I'd just watch them as their own sort of thing...

I'm quite excited. Eeeeee!

How about the fact that Annabeth is mysteriously blonde now?

@TriSARAHtops That trailer IS epic! Do you know what I miss? His floppy hair! I'm like: what happened to his floppy hair! It's all cut and short and stuff.

One, YAY!

Two, isn't Percy Jackson 12 years old in the books?

Three, I don't care. Well, sort of, but I'm still looking forward to the movie. The trailer is EPIC!
