Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (Twentieth Century Fox, CR: Murray Close)

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the sequel to the hit film Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief, continues the adventures of Percy (Logan Lerman), Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) and Grover (Brandon T. Jackson), as they embark on a dangerous mission to find the golden fleece.

The sequel features the additions of Nathan Fillion (Hermes), Stanley Tucci (Dionysus), and Anthony Head, who replaces Pierce Brosnan as Chiron.  Thor Freudenthal, who helmed the 2010 feature Diary of a Wimpy Kid, is on board as the director for this installment (Chris Columbus directed the first film).

Although the stories, based on the novels by Rick Riordan, are filled with action, the series’ popularity also stems from the positive themes featured in its narrative.
