PERCY JACKSON: THE TITAN’S CURSE MOVIE PLANS

PERCY JACKSON: THE TITAN’S CURSE MOVIE PLANS

Talking about Percy Jackson: The Titan’s Curse movie plans, Movie Moron has an exclusive article.

Percy Jackson The Titan's Curse Movie PosterThere’s been some Percy Jackson 3 talk in recent weeks. So what has been said and how likely is a sequel?

There are five books in the Percy Jackson series, so far. The next installment is ‘The Titan’s Curse’ which sees Percy ambushed as he brings two new demigods into camp by the doomsday monster Manticore (half-human, half-lion). Annabeth is kidnapped and the general of the Titans is preparing to release an army of skeleton warriors on the world. Percy and four friends must go on a dangerous quest to put things right, even though the Camp’s Oracle has prophesied that not all of them will survive…

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters earned $14 million at the weekend, less than half of Lightning Thief’s $31m. However it did open two days earlier on a Wednesday, has yet to launch internationally, and has the added bonus of 3D. All in all it looks like it will likely match Lightning Thief’s final total of $137m. Its production budget was also around $90m.

Amongst the critics, Sea of Monsters didn’t do as well as Lightning Thief (35% vs 49% on RT) but, more importantly, fans reacted better to it, with a user score of 6.5 on IMDB compared to 5.8 – in IMDB language that’s a significant difference.

The studio knows Sea of Monsters would have opened stronger if they hadn’t waited three-and-a-half years since the previous movie. Potter and Twilight never had gaps of more than two years. They need to get Titan’s Curse out in 2015 for maximum return. Indeed there’s an unconfirmed rumour that Fox has its eye on October that year.

Summing up, a third film is likely given the numbers and fan reaction, but this is a series that’s limping forwards, not charging. Unlike Potter, the studio will be judging whether to keep going one film at a time. For comparison, the Chronicles of Narnia reached its third film before the studio called it a day.

What would you like to see happen in Percy Jackson 3 (Titan’s Curse)? Did you prefer Sea of Monsters or Lightning Thief? How can they improve on both? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

  2. Annette - August 26, 2014

    I love percy Jackson series cant wait for the next movie hope they keep it going it would b tragic if they didn’t keep it going

  3. Aisha - August 24, 2014

    OK here the thing i get why they took so long making the movies separately but what i think is that both movies did great and as a fan of methodology movies and demigods i say that the studio production should make the 3nd movie and that they should continue on making the rest of the Percy Jackson series and i loved reading the books and i love seeing the last two movies

  4. Isabella Perdigon - August 13, 2014

    Ok, so I love Percy Jackson, but no offence, I love Harry Potter better! So, it would be better to use younger people, maybe create the movies again. Also the movies leave out a LOT of parts, so try to include all of them. I really want the 3rd one to come out, the book was awesome! My advice to people, is to read the books before the movies! Also, is the 3rd one might come out in 2015, what about the 4th one, or the 5th?! Anyways, this series is awesome! And don’t leave the gaps too long, it ruins the affect of the movies!
    Love the series!

  5. Theresa - August 10, 2014

    Would love to see all the books put into film!!! And please keep the same actors in the future movies…just wouldn’t be the same without them. Never read the books, maybe in the future? Really love the two movies out, My grand daughter (7) and I love watching the movies over and over again. We enjoy the story of the movie and the adventures the characters go on!!!

  6. TG - July 29, 2014

    I really want there to be another movie, but to see them try and stay truer to the books. Other than that, the movies are awesome.

  7. kpeters - July 24, 2014

    my son is 4 and he loves the Percy Jackson movie he watches them every night and wants to know when we can get more so yes you should make more Percy Jackson movies they’re great for kids and I dont I love them too and I’m 35 years old it’s just the great family movie

  8. Debbie - July 22, 2014

    My daughter is 11 and has just been reading the Percy Jackson books she wanted the films for her birthday I couldn’t understand why I could only get the first two I just presumed they were all out on film we watched the first two and they are excellent they just have to follow up with the other films and like people say sooner rather than later

  9. Unknown - July 10, 2014

    I really love this movie i hope u guys make the third one and u guys should at a little romance between percy and annabeth

  10. Denny Saputra - July 7, 2014

    Oh Percy Jackson is one of the best movie that i ever watch and i hope they will make the third. Dont’ waste your time okeyyy

  11. ;-) - July 7, 2014

    I’m so shocked! Excuse me, but the two frst Percy Jackson movies have been a HUGE succes! Don’t get me wrong, but if there isn’t a third it would be ridiculous. Nowadays, most of the people prefer watching movies than reading books because they are lazy. If there isn’t a third movie, well the number of people who would buy the Percy Jackson books will not AT ALL be so big and Rick Riordan won’t get the money he earns now!! And I do want the serie P.J. to disappear like many other books ==> movies. And also, the main cast (Percy, Annabeth, Grover…) want the third movie to exist and of course, want to be in it! If the author of the movie wants to continue being such a hit , so famous well he/she HAS to make a third movie… And quickly! Because after that, people will lose interest in that series and forget about it! It’s the cycle I mentioned before…
    SO DO IT ! JUST DO IT! AND STOP DOUBTING!

    All the percy jackson movies should be made. I loved Lighting Thief and Sea of the monsters very much. Titan’s curse should be more like the book a little The book was sad and happy at the same time. It was dramatic. The movie should make us feel that way too. PERCY JACKSON TITAN’S CURSE SHOULD BE MADE AS AMOVIE!!!!!!

    • PJAB19 - July 6, 2014

      Reply to this if you think the same

    • bailey - July 6, 2014

      I agree. The first movie I didn’t like too much because it left out some major details and i freaked that annabeth was suddenly a brunette. However the second movie matched the book but left out a few parts. Which I can live with. The next movie is one I’m looking forward too the most because none of the gods or goddesses have been introduced much in the other stories but we will see Artemis and Zoe and all these amazing characters. I’m excited and I pray it happens. Or I’m gonna hunt down Logan and make him do the movie :P I’m just kidding.

      • MooMoo - July 17, 2014

        Bailey I also agree. The major problem with the second movie is they left out the part where he becomes a guinea pig. Which made me sad……

        • Alex - July 17, 2014

          @MooMoo Percy not becoming a guinea pig didn’t ruin the movie. Don’t be stupid. Them revealing the great prophecy and having Kronos come back and eat Luke is what killed the movie. Once Luke captured them outside Polyphemus’ cave is when the film went down the toilet.

  13. ava - July 6, 2014

    I love the Percy Jackson films and books but there a lot of things wrong
    1.Percy and Anabeth don’t really get along
    2.they don’t show hermes or circe
    My point is they should go just like the books

    SO excited for new movies!?

  14. Ravale Khan - July 4, 2014

    I was waiting one year for it to come out I read the book but now I also want to see the movie. I am a huge Percy Jackson series fan so far my favirout is the lightening thief lets hope that The titans curse can beat that.

  15. Jessica Hayes - July 3, 2014

    Look I Have Been Dying To See The Titans Curse So… What I Am Trying To Say Is That You Should Get The Movies Done… People Don’t Want To Wait Or Rewatch Percy Jackson And The Lighting Thief…Or The Sea Of Monsters.

  16. iLikeTheUDK - July 1, 2014

    Rather ironic that Chris Columbus, who directed the film version of the first two Harry Potter films, that tried to be close to the book so much that they even gave Daniel Radcliffe (who had blue eyes) green contact lenses so he’ll fit the description of Harry in the book (not to mention they followed most of the book’s plot rather tightly compared to the PJO films, and even cast some actors based on J.K. Rowling’s personal choices for their parts – At least Robbie Coltrane as Hagrid and Maggie Smith as Prof. McGonagall), directed Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

    • Alex - July 17, 2014

      @iLineTheUDK After Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets, Columbus didn’t want to work with hundreds of 11/12 year olds so that was the big reason in TLT the ages were 16. Also Warner Brothers wanted JK’s input and suggestions. 20th Century Fox didn’t want Rick’s input or anything, so they shipped wreck their Titanic.

  17. Izzat Syarifuddin - June 16, 2014

    The movies aren’t bad but I wish they don’t change the minute details. For example, percy and annabeth relationship are not that good in the first few books. Heck percy was not that old when he entered camp half blood, he’s only 12. There is a lot more, but I’ll stop here. My advice: READ THE BOOK, IT’S BETTER.

    • ava - June 17, 2014

      i agree and in the second movie grover is supposed to be on a quest searching for pan but he is still there but the movies are still good

    • MoooMoo - July 17, 2014

      I second that! The books are muchhhhh better. I kinda doubt they will make the next couple of movies as Logan Lerman is too old for the part. I reckon they should dump the pj series and go for the heroes of Olympus series….

  18. Kathleen Swinehart - June 8, 2014

    I am a librarian at a middle school and these books are so hot. Students will read the lightning thief over and over also. So many books now a days are being made into movies. it has a reverse affect in the way of more students are reading because they saw the movie and want to know what happens next so they go to the books to find out. I agree and wish they would come out with this series as close together as possible to keep it alive and keep the same characters. I enjoy a series more with the same actors. Waiting to long makes the actors to old in some cases.

  19. Yasmine - June 8, 2014

    Please pleAse please make a third movie to the series .. I have been trying to figure out when it’s coming out just to find out it hasn’t even been decided yet :( …. PLEASE MAKE A THIRD MOVIE I PROMISE I WILL GO SEE IT . I’ll be in front row at the movies !!!!

  20. pankie - June 5, 2014

    I love percy jackson and my kids love percy jackson its a great series that should be shown to the world. My opinion its better than harry potter and lord of the rings. I stay into the movie without confusion. I think it would do great it jus need more introduction when the movies is bout to be release into theater. More radio stations more commercial more talk shows. I didnt even know the second one was out until late. Please keep the seriea going. I know that movie will do great things if you stay committed

  21. James David Cox - May 27, 2014

    I have watched both Percy Jackson movies The Lighting Thief & Sea of Monsters, I thought they were both great and I would love to see a third movie even to see the hole series of movies based on the books. I haven’t read any of the books so I can’t tell what should or shouldn’t go into the movies but I’m sure there is allot of people who have and would like to see more detail from the books into the movies them selves. I really hope that the producers keep going with a hole movie series, it would build a huge fan base of film watchers and book series readers. But I have watched many movies that did a second sequels and did not continue. I hope that it will happen but I have learned to have high hopes but not to be disappointed if it never happens.

  22. andrea - May 24, 2014

    The lightning thief had more action and detail it showed more creativity and thoughts towards the theme. Sea of Monsters only had a couple of minutes towards the theme of “sea of monsters.” more fighting, suspense, and near misses should be shown while still relating to the idea of the story.

    • leslie - May 24, 2014

      I totally agree and like… they should do the entire series!!! (I HATE waiting!!!)

      • dawn - June 4, 2014

        I know if they do make a third one I’m watch in as soon as it comes out and I mean they have too they can’t leave us hanging when they brought Zeus daughter comes back to life

  23. Erica Miller - May 22, 2014

    I want to see the whole series in as movies…the thing is if your going to make them….DO IT…dont waste time get the mivies out there so we can see them…as for me I cant stand waiting I get board and move on to a new series.

  24. mike sousa - May 22, 2014

    I think they should movie the whole series. At 56 years old I enjoyed both movies.

  25. stephanie - May 18, 2014

    i love the books and the movies they need to come out with a 3 movie

  26. shelly - May 16, 2014

    Im finally reading the series and absolutely love it and would love to see the words come to life and see how they picture it
