Percy Jackson movie trailer.. o_o

Ermm.. ok..

 

So when I found out that Percy Jackson* was going to be made into a movie, I was estatic.

And when I found out that it was being directed by Chris Columbus**, I was -in short- beyond thrilled.

But... umm... then I started seeing the trailers.

And I kept saying I wouldnt say anything bad about the movie, until I saw it, because I had faith in Chris Columbus.. lol

 

Ok.

But if I have to listen to Percy screaming

 

THIS.

IS .

A.

PEN!!!

 

one more time.. I might jump out the window***

.

Yes, Percy. Good job. Thank you for pointing out Riptide is a pen.

You get a gold sticker for the day.

 

Umm alright, and also, someone needs to wack that movies casting director on the head.

What on Earth were they thinking when they casted Annabeth???? Isnt that actress in her 20s?   o_O

 

Alright.

Enough of my ranting, thank you.

Does anyone else have any thoughts about the Percy Jackson movie/trailer  ??

 

 

*Good series :smileytongue: lolll

**Directed first two Harry Potter films, which I also personally think were the best, or at least, closest to the book.... :smileyvery-happy: 

***ok. maybe i exagerated. .. a litttttleeeeee... :smileytongue: haaha

Re: Percy Jackson movie trailer.. O_o

[ Edited ]

In my thought about the trailer it just wasn't what I thought it would be like. I thought it could be better I mean if the director is the director from the first 2 Harry Potter films. The thing that I'm very sad about is the person that plays Annabeth because Annabeth needs to look 12 not 20. O and Grover??????? No comment. I loved the books, but the trailer just doesn't seem as great as I wish it could be but maybe I'm just going over board cause I haven't seen it yet so maybe it isn't bad and the trailer just makes it seem that way. *shrugs* idk what I just hope the movie is going to turn out good.

Re: Percy Jackson movie trailer.. O_o

I think the trailer is epic (Take out Annabeth)! I mean THIS IS A PEN line was my favorite. Maybe I'm the strange one, but the trailer has gotten me pumped to see the movie!

Re: Percy Jackson movie trailer.. o_o

in the trailers you see Percy & Luke fighting in new york.....they didnt in the first book it was at camp when the scorpion bit him...

 

&& has anyone seen the crazy fire thingy? i cant remember what it is, & my friend thought it was the food offerings you know, but i told her that it didnt have arms that moved around and had a screaming face...

 

lastly, annabeth & grover i think are way off

(though Chiron/Pierce Bronson looks amazing)
