<i>Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters</i> Gets a Release Date!

Studio has set a release date for the upcoming sequel to Chris Columbus-directed fantasy film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. More after the jump...

First movie starring Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson was released last year and it received mixed reviews from critics and fans. It had a reported budget of $95 million and it made more than $226 million worlwide. Chris Columbus directed the film, with Brandon T. Jackson, Sean Bean, Alexandra Daddario and Pierce Brosnan also starring. Since there are five books, 20th Century Fox has set a release date for the sequel, which is a second book in the series.

Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters will be released on March 27, 2013.

It is still not confirmed whether or not Chris Columbus will direct the film. More info should be revealed soon.

And this is a short summary of the second book:

When Thalia's tree is mysteriously poisoned, the magical borders of Camp Half-Blood begin to fail. Now Percy and his friends have just days to find the only magical item powerful enough to save the camp before monsters overrun it. The catch: they must sail into the Sea of Monsters to find it. Along the way, Percy must stage a daring rescue operation to save his old friend Grover. He also learns a terrible secret about his own family, which makes him question whether being the son of Poseidon is an honor or a curse.

Looking forward to this. I actually liked the first one
Lokibegoodstick - 10/12/2011, 12:16 PM
nigh unwatchable!....and thats coming from a former hard-core potter nerd.
KNIGHT3000 - 10/12/2011, 12:25 PM
Is it really neccessary to make another of this?
the17thrunaway - 10/12/2011, 12:25 PM
Didn't see that coming.

Never got around to seeing the first film, I'm not big on fantasy stuff.
Dedpool - 10/12/2011, 12:31 PM
Liked the first one, looking forward to a second. It was a decent little intro to that world but alot was left open.

The movie was nothing like the book, but I enjoyed it none the less.

Sea of Monsters steps up the tension, and should ratchet up the action...
Lokibegoodstick - 10/12/2011, 12:35 PM
yep I guess I did *chuckle-chuckle*
KNIGHT3000 - 10/12/2011, 12:36 PM

Sean Bean for what? To get killed unfairly yet again? I swear, it must be in his contracts to always be played out that way. But, he will always be OO6 Alec Trevelyan to me. THE MAN!!!!
KNIGHT3000 - 10/12/2011, 12:37 PM
HahahahahaAhahahahaHahaha! I know right?

First movie had so much crap left out from the first book. Hopefully they'll make up for it and reveal that the real villain is the titan Kronos and that Percy is part of a major prophecy.

Dude I knew in Germany is set to direct it, Thor Freudenthal, according to IMDb.
NOLANITE - 10/12/2011, 12:45 PM
My release date was 5 minutes ago.
The first movie was really good actually.
So good that you can even ask amy Adams how it tasted in her mouth.
Greengo - 10/12/2011, 12:45 PM
I'm surprised myself that I liked the first one. A lot : )
Talontd - 10/12/2011, 12:48 PM

Thanks for the SPOILER @sshole...
CherryBomb - 10/12/2011, 12:53 PM
Hell yeah!
I liked the first, and more chance to see Logan Lerman is fine by me!

The books are great, but the film was a disgrace and left out details that were needed to further the story. This film shouldn't get made. I'd rather see Hitler come back to life and then get flogged by a billion Jews! At least THAT would be entertaining!!!!!!!!!!
nuck82 - 10/12/2011, 12:56 PM
kraken? 1st one was fun, ok of a movie, id wait till dvd to rent
Lokibegoodstick - 10/12/2011, 12:57 PM
yep I guess she is, and yes they are. Seems like since lord of the rings and HP they keep making fantasy films , which is great, but the mostly suck which, well sucks.
KNIGHT3000 - 10/12/2011, 1:02 PM

Everybody wants that
HelaGood - 10/12/2011, 1:08 PM
was alright... couldve been 2 hours of dominatrix uma instead... yum!

Lokibegoodstick - 10/12/2011, 1:08 PM
Sounds like a great summer popcorn film! I wonder what the budget it would need thats a lot of CGI
Oarsis - 10/12/2011, 1:09 PM
The movie was ok...the books are amazing though! Recast annabeth...for real!
Thalia Grace MUST be played by:

India Eisley!
ecksmanfan - 10/12/2011, 1:14 PM
I actually like Uma Thurman's version of Medusa a lot better than the shit that we were fed in Clash of the Titans! The first flick is watchable and entertaining. There is definitely room for improvement however.

"It is still not confirmed whether or not Chris Columbus will direct the film. More info should be revealed soon."

This "more info" you speak of was revealed months ago. Columbus will produce, a guy named Thor Freudenthal will direct.
marvel72 - 10/12/2011, 1:24 PM
haven't seen the first one,i don't think its worth my time.....
Thelastdalek - 10/12/2011, 1:25 PM

You clearly havnt botherd to read the books there actualy pretty good and it's dumb to compare every kids fantasy to Harry Potter.

Your right about the books though.
Thelastdalek - 10/12/2011, 1:25 PM
Cant we edit our comments anny more [frick].

I ment you were right about the film
Greengo - 10/12/2011, 1:34 PM

Hopefully it will have a different director than Columbus..
He took what was a funny action packed heroes journey, and tried to mold it into a Harry Potter clone..
The main antagonist of the first book was Ares and he wasn't even mentioned in the movie, that is just an example of how much he changed it.
Seven23 - 10/12/2011, 2:05 PM
That´s great !!!
CherryBomb - 10/12/2011, 2:09 PM
@tweenkies3 YAAAAY, I love India (: she's so pretty!
MovieMaster - 10/12/2011, 2:12 PM

ClarkFarley2012 - 10/12/2011, 2:27 PM

chasesuperremey - 10/12/2011, 2:56 PM

Oarsis - 10/12/2011, 3:04 PM
