Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief – New character posters for Zeus, Hera or is it Medusa, Hades and Persephone

Posted by LiveFor on January 22, 2010

Here are a few new international posters for the adaption of the first Percy Jackson book.

To be honest, these are not the best posters I have seen. Sean Bean as Zeus looks so old and the armour he is wearing reminds me of that shiny armour at the end of The Running Man the wrestler guy is wearing.

Hera is played by the lovely Erica Cerra from Eureka, but in the poster below you wouldn’t have a clue and the Cyclops style visor just looks odd….whoa whoa whoa Sweet Child of Mine! I think they’ve got the poster named wrong – it actually looks like Uma Thurman as Medusa and would tie in with the character in that her ‘hair’ is covered as are her eyes which, as we all know, turns you to stone. Bit of a mistake on the PR department for the film. Anyone else with me on this?Steve Coogan as Hades (above) is the only one who looks any good although Rosario Dawson as Persephone looks as gorgeous as always.

All of them have the usual lazy photoshop styling about them and it is a shame as some of the previous posters for the film have looked excellent. Mind you the Uma Thurman as Medusa poster was just dreadful.What do you think of the news posters? If you could do better send them to me.

Eureka! Erica Cerra is a Goddess to Percy Jackson

Posted by LiveFor on September 2, 2009

erica-cerraEureka’s Erica Cerra is starring in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. She will star alongside Uma Thurman, Rosario Dawson, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean, Kevin McKidd, Catherine Keener, Melina Kanakaredes, Steve Coogan and Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson.

Directed by Harry Potter veteran Chris Columbus, the film is a fantasy based on the first book in Rick Riordan’s popular series. My son is loving them and has zipped through the first five books over the past few weeks.

In the story, a young modern-day boy named Percy Jackson learns that he’s the half-human/half-god son of Poseidon (McKidd) and embarks on a journey of adventure and self-discovery that also involves warring gods. Cerra plays Hera, the goddess of marriage and wife of Zeus (Bean), the god of lightning.

“I’m a big Harry Potter fan,” said Cerra speaking to Sci-Fi Wire “I have all the books. I’ve seen all the movies a billion and one times. When I heard what Percy Jackson was about I read it and pushed, pushed, pushed to be in the movie. So I was absolutely thrilled when I got a role, and then I was sitting in a room with Sean Bean and Kevin McKidd and Melina Kanakaredes, who plays Athena. It was a wonderful experience, and I’m a very big fan of Chris Columbus, so that was really cool as well. In the novels, in the other stories, Hera and Zeus show up to help Percy, so hopefully they will also in the [sequel] scripts.”

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief is due out on 12th February 2010.
