In 2010, an odd movie called "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" opened. The movie, based on the books by Rick Riordan, satisfied fans and help to create a legion of followers for the young lead, Logan Lerman.

Since then, Lerman has made a name for himself in movies like "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," and now he has returned to the worlds of gods and their half-mortal offspring.

Earlier today, MTV News exclusively debuted the trailer for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," and now we're breaking it down to the moments that got us most excited.



2 Guns

If there's one thing you can take away from the trailer for "2 Guns," it's that Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington have amazing chemistry. The adaptation of the Boom Studios comic book of the same name teams the two actors up as an undercover DEA agent and Navy Intelligence officer who are both betrayed by their organizations and forced to work together to figure out why.

But, as can be seen in the trailer below the jump, "together" is a touchy word. At least Wahlberg and Washington work better alongside each other than their characters Marcus Stigman and Bobby Trench do, as their hilarious back-and-forth is the main element of the trailer that keeps it worth watching. It seems like this movie is going to be worth seeing for these two alone, despite having a strong supporting cast.

After spending some time as a "Wallflower," Logan Lerman is turning his sights back to the see for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," the sequel to his 2010 breakout "The Lightning Thief."

MTV News has your exclusive first look at the trailer, and if the preview of the movie is any indication, this thing is going to be big! Because those definitely are not sharks.

"Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" arrives on August 16, so you'll have some time to study up on your Greek mythology. You can also catch up with Lerman on Rated MTV this Friday, April 5 on MTV.

You're Next

The first trailer for Adam Wingard's home invasion horror movie "You're Next" has us feeling conflicted.

On one hand, the movie won accolades when it originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011. Wingrad and writer Simon Barrett in the mean time have kept themselves busy with the "V/H/S" series. The film is finally getting a release after some complications with the studio, and fans of the film are thrilled.

On the other hand, "You're Next" looks terrifying, and we want it die, lest we accidentally end up in a theater eagerly watching as the masked killers stalk their next victim.

To check out the first trailer for yourself, take a look after the jump!



The latest MTV original movie takes on a topic many of us are far too familiar with. In "Ladies Man: A MADE Movie," Toby wants to become a "stud" and convince all of the girls that he's friends with to see him in a different light (i.e. not as their gay best friend).

To do that, Toby decides to get a "MADE"-style makeover and enter the Mr. Olympus pageant, but will he ever figure out that all he has to do is be himself to get the girl? Probably. But it'll will be fun watching him get there.

"Ladies Man: A MADE Movie" will premiere on Tuesday, April 9 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. In the mean time, check out the movie's Facebook page and watch the "Ladies Man Guidebook" after the jump!


Pain & Gain

The latest trailer for Michael Bay's "Pain & Gain" has arrived, and it's absolutely hilarious. Though Dwayne Johnson's character Paul Doyle, Mark Wahlberg's Daniel Lugo and Anthony Mackie's Adrian Doorbal aren't considered heroes in real life, they definitely look like they will be in the movie based on what we've seen this red band trailer.

The video is for ages 17 and up because of some swearing, violence and a severed toe. It's also much more comedic than the previous "Pain & Gain" trailers released. The use of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' song "Thrift Shop" helps with that, but the new scenes of Rebel Wilson and Ken Jeong make it seem like "Pain & Gain" could be as much a comedy as it is an action movie.

Everyone knows that Wolverine is the fan-favorite, self-healing X-Men member that can slice and dice is way out of about any situation thanks to his nifty mutation, but MTV News' exclusive look at his upcoming film, "The Wolverine," is making us question that.

The tease, which is introduced by the Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, hints that the mutant may be losing his most special ability, his rapid healing.

What does this mean for his upcoming spin-off, which will be in theaters on July 26? Check back for the full length trailer, which drops tomorrow.

World War Z

We all know what zombies are, right? They either walk or sprint — depending on your preference — and in general, they tend to feed on the flesh of the living. That's a pretty basic definition of what was at one time in the last few years the trendiest of all movie monsters.

Ironically, all of the preview material for "World War Z," which is based on the book by famed zombie writer Max Brooks with the "Z" obviously standing for zombie, is seemingly trying to hide that those crazed hordes chasing after Brad Pitt and his family are something other than the reanimated corpses of the undead.

Let's say it all together: 'World War Z' is about zombies!!! That feels better.

Kings of Summer

"The Kings of Summer," previously known as "Toy's House," charmed the pants off of everyone in Park City that saw the coming-of-age comedy during its debut at the Sundance Film Festival.

After CBS films snapped up the film's rights for an appropriate May 31 release date, it seemed that the indie film might live up to its new name.

The studio just released a short teaser trailer for "The Kings of Summer" that should give you an idea of what to expect when it his theaters this summer.



Star Trek

Late last night, the newest trailer for "Star Trek" hit the web, debuting a ton of new footage and an outrageously gratuitous shot of a female character in her underwear. But hey, this thing needs to make a lot of money, so that's all good sport, right?

The objectification of Alice Eve aside, the preview gave us our best sense yet of who this John "Not Khan" Harrison guy is, plus a ton of new actions sequences.

You can check out the trailer and a brand new poster for "Star Trek Into Darkness" after the jump!
