Percy Jackson

Any movie that's going to have Greek gods and half-breeds in it is going to need some impressive special effects work to back up the creatures. That applied for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," the second movie in the fantasy franchise.

With the Logan Lerman movie about to hit Blu-ray and DVD this week, MTV Movies Blog has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what went into bringing the character Tyson to life.

As anyone who has seen the movie knows, Tyson is a cyclops, and putting one eye on an actor is harder than you might expect.

Percy Jackson

For a movie called "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," the first trailers for the mythological sequel have been a little short on beasties. Sure, there's that mechanical bull thing and some of the new half-bloods making their way into the ranks of Percy and Annabeth, but we were still craving some serious monster action.

The new international trailer for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," however, does not have that problem. As pumped as we are for this movie and the monsters in it, we do have to warn you that the trailer does give away a lot of the film and pretty much covers the story from start to finish.

That being said, it gives you your best look yet at all of the action that is set to go down when "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" hits theaters on August 7.

We all love Logan Lerman, right? The soft-spoken charmer from "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" won over just about anyone who came within 50 feet of his image on a big screen, but now that he's returning to the action of the "Percy Jackson" series, he's missing a little something.

And that's a badass slogan.

In the newest episode of After Hours, MTV News' Josh Horowitz walks Lerman through some potential taglines for the half-blood hero. If he's ever going to be taken seriously as an action star, these are the kind of one-liners he'll need to spout off on a whim.

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.



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.
