TrulyLuminary’s Set Sightings – “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters has finally hit theaters and fans seem to be very happy with the results! Personally, I thought that the film was very well done and I enjoyed the several aspects of the film including the acting, the story, the visual effects, and the beautiful set and prop design.

As most fans may know, most of this sequel was shot in studio and on various locations in Vancouver, British Columbia.  The set for Camp Half-Blood was located at a local park and I was lucky enough to go and get an exclusive look at this stunning and realistic set a few days before they started filming.

Unfortunately, the set has already been deconstructed as they finished using it just over a year ago, but I still have some great photos to share with you! Of course, I had to wait until the movie came out in order to publish them. These exclusive photos show some of the set details and different aspects of the expansive Camp Half-Blood set!

Exclusive First Look at “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”

Those of you who are fans of the Percy Jackson series will be excited to know some exclusive stills have been released for the long-awaited sequel, Sea of Monsters.

The first film in the series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, was released just over three years ago now. I believe that part of the long production delay was because of Logan Lerman’s busy schedule. Between filming and promoting his other films, Lerman has been a busy young rising star. However, his schedule finally cleared up and he made it up to Vancouver, BC to film the sequel just last year.

My dad was actually a part of the crew and worked on the sets for Sea of Monsters when it was in town My little brother is a fan of the series and so my dad took him to set one day and he got to meet Lerman and Alexandra Daddario! As you can imagine, he was quite excited, but nervous at the same time.

These five new stills feature Lerman, Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Douglas Smith, Leven Rambin, and Stanley Tucci. According to Page to Premiere, a trailer for this highly anticipated sequel is going to be played in front of The Host when it hits theaters this week! Sea of Monsters is currently set for a August 16, 2013 release.

Be sure to check in soon for an update on a trailer and let me know what you think of these new stills!
