Hey folks, Harry here... Earlier tonight I was at the Alamo Drafthouse South - where in the lobby there was a striking (pun intended) Standee for PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF. It is the poster art, but with Percy Jackson throwing a flashing and thundering lightning bolt. Just in time for all the NEW MOON girls to notice(?) as they ponder bloodsports or bestiality. Then I spy the new trailer online and I get what Fox hopes happens with this series. But there is an element that is missing in these trailers. The music. Do you remember how powerful those early Harry Potter trailers were... how they let John Williams' score make you believe in magic and the wonder of what was to come? I do hope that Christophe Beck's score rises and soars to what needs to underscore these scenes. Sure does have some cool imagery. Hope Chris knocks this out of the park.
