percy jackson trailer

Rest in peace Jacob Portman.

Rest in peace Emma Bloom. Rest in peace Olive. Rest in peace Miss Peregrine. Rest in peace to the (personally) best book ever, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. You were funny, and unique, and great in so many ways the world never saw before. You were the perfect balance of fantasy and reality, free and grounded; and you managed to pull off a story about magic and love and life in a way no one has ever been able to do. 

After years of waiting for a movie, we all surely hoped that this would be your shot, your big premier, your shining moment. We anxiously and excitedly waited for the results of the trailer, expecting all the best things. When we heard the news, all those who knew you as I did were much affected. Some of us asked, “why you?” Others wept silent tears. Still others angrily demanded explanation. 

To a reader who loved the book as much as I did, this is an outrage. To just change a few minor or medium details, or have a few wrong castings, would be acceptable. But to change two of the most important characters in every way shape and form, and to do it so to change the entire meaning of the story, and to do all of this to make it “look cooler” – you have lost every ounce of respect. This movie is NOT Miss Peregrine’s. It is but the same script as every other chiche magic/superpower/teen movie, with names from the original novel sloppily pasted on top.

If you have ever loved a book so much that you would get amnesia only to re-read it, and if you have ever had that loved book turned into an entirely different movie altogether, please repost this message, as a farewell and a warning.

Rest in peace, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Sea of Monsters Trailer

Look what I’ve found on Tumblr. A set photo from the Polyphemus scene. What do you make of it when you first look at it?

Now look again. On IMDB and on Tumblr, many people believe it is fake.

Here’s two comments from the IMDB Percy Jackson boards.

“There should’ve been a fog on the fight scene, plus Polyphemus should already be joining them, if this is the climax, why would they let people take pictures during the filming session???”

“And guys, there are 2 Grovers and 2 Percy Jackson in this scene.”

Here’s the pic on Tumblr where it was first put up: http://thatdemigodwhoeatsbluefood.tumblr.com/image/44671305120

Do you believe it is fake?

Finally, Percy Jackson’s the Sea of Monster trailer came out! 

I hope they didn’t cut the “Circe’s resort” and “Percy being the guinea pig” because those parts are AWESOME!
