Fans of the best-selling Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan (the film is based on the debut novel), are invited to attend this unique event, and meet the cast members who bring the story’s beloved characters to life.
Attending the event will be two of the film’s exciting young stars: Logan Lerman (“3:10 to Yuma”) who portrays Percy; and Alexandra Daddario (“The Baby-Sitters”), who stars as another demi-god, Annabeth, daughter of Athena.
Additional star wattage will be provided by expected attendees Pierce Brosnan (“Mamma Mia”), who portrays Chiron, the Centaur who runs a special camp for these demigods called Camp Half Blood; Melina Kanakaredes (“CSI:NY”), who portrays Athena, daughter of Zeus; and Kevin McKidd (“Grey's Anatomy”), who plays Poseidon.
As the film’s title suggests, lightning is a key element of the story, set in a modern world where the twelve Gods of Mount Olympus (perched 600 stories above the planet on New York’s landmark Empire State Building) are alive and are creating a new race of young mythological heroes who are demigods -- half mortal, half god. Percy, the teenage son of Poseidon, is suspected by Zeus of stealing his lightning bolt, the universe’s most powerful weapon. To prove his innocence and avoid a devastating war among the gods, Percy embarks on a transcontinental odyssey to find the real thief. Along his journey, he confronts fierce enemies determined to stop him, and attempts to save his mother from the deadly clutches of another Greek god, Hades.
PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF strikes theaters everywhere February 12, 2010.
