20th Century Fox has released a new featurette for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. The follow-up finds Percy (Logan Lerman) and his friends venturing to a mythical land known as the Sea of Monsters to retrieve a golden fleece that is essential to the survival of his home and other demigods. This is the first bit of marketing that has me interested in the film since it shows how this time around the mythological aspects carry over into our world rather than mythological creatures simply coming to Percy like in the first movie. There’s still plenty of emphasis on those creatures, but I like that the sequel looks like it’s willing to have more fun with the myths such as Hermes (Nathan Fillion) running UPS-like delivery service.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette. The film also stars Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Stanley Tucci, Douglas Smith, Anthony Head, Leven Rambin, Missi Pyle, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Mary Birdsong. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters opens in 3D on August 7th.
