Teaser trailer for Rick Riordan’s PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF.

Here is the teaser for the upcoming PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF. The film is based on Rick Riordan’s massively successful young adult novel. I have to say it is always great to see somebody as talented as Rick get the praise (and coin) he so richly deserves.

What if the gods of Olympus were alive in the 21st Century? What if they still fell in love with mortals and had children who might become great heroes — like Theseus, Jason and Hercules?
What if you were one of those children?

Such is the discovery that launches twelve-year-old Percy Jackson on the most dangerous quest of his life. With the help of a satyr and a daughter of Athena, Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original weapon of mass destruction – Zeus’ master bolt. Along the way, he must face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop him. Most of all, he must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend.


PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF lands in theaters on Feb 12th, 2010.
