Sea of Monsters Trailer #2!

Warning! May contain Sea of Monsters spoilers!

Hey! I'm just checking in with you for a very special post... My analysis of the second Sea of Monsters trailer!

First, watch it here:



OKAY, now analysis time! It's easier for me if I just make some bullet points here instead of writing in paragraph format. So here goes (I am writing this as I watch the trailer for the fifth time in the last 20 minutes xD):

  • Hey, it got a rating! PG! (I actually typed "PJO" instead of "PG" at first, haha.) Not that it matters to me, really. I'd see it anyway if it were rated G or PG-13 or whatever. It's Percy Jackson, for goodness' sake!
  • I love how "Anaklusmos" is on the handle of Riptide, and the little trident at the bottom is a nice touch.
  • What is all this talk about an annihilation prophecy? Are they talking about the Great Prophecy already? It's kind of early, don't you think?
  • I'm not sure how I feel about this new actor for Chiron, but I've only seen a few seconds of his acting, so I don't think I'm in the proper position to give a valid opinion (yet).
  • The forcefield physically breaking seems a little dramatic, and the bronze bull looks very frightening, but very awesome. As it should be, of course.
  • LUKE! HE'S NOT ACTUALLY DEAD!
  • I'm wondering about that shiny green thing in Luke's hand... Maybe it's something he acquired from Kronos?
  • From the trailer clips that have been released so far, Dionysus seems much more serious than a god of partying should be. His demeanor is much more... intimidating? Strong? Not laid-back? Hm. But he doesn't look lazy enough to be Dionysus.
  • The Chariot of Damnation scene looks amazingly done and totally crazy, as it should be. I guess it could be comparable to the Knight Bus from Harry Potter (with the crazy driver/supernatural vehicle elements), but the words "comparable to Harry Potter" shall not be uttered on this blog, because we all know that never ends well.
  • Hermes is literally my favorite character in this trailer. Love him. "Oh no! Not in here! ...Not in here."
  • They changed the release date on us! August 7th is the official date now. Mark your calendars! 
  • No Annabeth, those aren't sharks. Those are Charybdis's teeth. I thought she was supposed to be a Daughter of Athena...?
  • Hermes's family line. I see that they kept that in there, which pleases me immensely.
  • Thalia!!!! (It actually took me a while to figure out that was her!)
  • I'm really confused about the big red scary thing with horns. I have absolutely no idea what that is supposed to be.
  • OKAY MOVIE PEOPLE, GIVE TYSON HIS TIME TO SHINE. LET HIM HAVE HIS MOMENT WITH THE COLCHIS BULLS. OKAY? WHY ARE YOU TAKING AWAY TYSON'S MOMENT?
  • Speaking of Tyson, in case anyone's wondering, Tyson has two eyes at some points [most likely] because he's in areas with mortals and the Mist is shielding his Cyclops eye.
  • When exactly did Riptide become a throwing knife? Sheesh.
Anyways, that's all I'm going to say. I'm not going to proofread this, so if there are typos or anything, you know why. I have some exams to study for, so I'll leave any other analyses to you guys! Feel free to comment and share your opinions and ideas. (I love hearing them!) :)

  1. I heard "the big scary thing with horns" looks like Hades from TLT movie...

    And also, in the movies, they never explained about monsters going to Tarturus (however that's spelled), or about the Mist...

    1. I think they'll explain that when Percy finds out about Tyson being a cyclops.

  2. I like the fact that the actress who plays Annabeth finally has blonde hair
