The first trailer for Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters, based on the book by Rick Riordan was released earlier this week.
Some Hollywood watchers are surprised that there is a sequel, since the first was not judged a financial success in theaters. This time around, director Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) replaces Chris Columbus (the first two Harry Potter movies). The movie opens on August 7.
