Based on the popular YA books by Rick Riordan, Chris Columbus's PERCY JACKSON & THE LIGHTNING THIEF was evidently profitable enough to compel Fox to keep the series running. I thought the first film worked as a glossy Greek Mythology primer for kids (it was certainly more enjoyable than Louis Leterrier's CLASH OF THE TITANS), so I've no issue with more of the same. Not that it matters. I'm not the target audience for this stuff, and, unless you're a precocious eight- to twelve-year-old reading this website, neither are you.
In any event, here's the trailer for PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS (via MTV):
Interesting to see Logan Lerman back in kids' stuff after making a strong impression in last year's PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER. I'm guessing they signed him for at least three movies. Wonder how he feels about that?
And is it me, or is that taxicab bit totally ripped off from SCROOGED?
