Percy Jackson's High School Musical

Well, they've released another Percy Jackson and the Olympians trailer:

*sigh* I laughed at the pen line, but otherwise it just looks so hokey. Also, I find myself totally distracted by that kid's emo take on Zac Efron's hair.

And I know I've already complained about this, but why are the actors so old? I seriously want to know (i.e., this isn't just my normal sulkiness over bad casting). Is it because they're combining the whole series into one movie? Because the characters are supposed to age from eleven to sixteen over the course of five books, and if they're making five movies... well, those actors will be thinking seriously about their retirement benefits by the time the series is over.

Errr... Um... I think that, had it been less ambitious, it would not have looked so... it would not have fallen so hard on its face. I suspect that it shall be quite successful, but that I shall not be in line to see it on its opening day.

And seriously, tell me I am not supposed to believe that those children are under fifteen. That is as low as I am willing to believe.

you know, they DO look kinda old. i agree with Sheryl. I think it'll do great, but I won't be ther opening day. Seems like it would almost make me laugh. Just like: This is a powerful weapon.- ..It's a pen. Only use it in times of great danger.-...It's a PEN. Haha. And also, ANNABETH SHOULD BE BLONDE!!!!!!!!! With GRAY eyes, NOT blue sulks
