It’s late and I should be asleep, but I thought you might like to grab a gander at the new international poster for the upcoming Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, sent over by our pals at BadTaste over in Italia.  My take? Well, considering that it already has, and will continue to draw the Harry Potter comparisons, it’s got the lighting scheme down, especially considering this past summer’s Half-Blood Prince promo posters.  But overall, I kind of dig the image.  Looks like he’s going out to bag a dinner marlin for with a 50,000-volt rod.

BadTaste also has some other promo / character art that you may find interesting, totaling six in all, including an Italian version of this snap.  Click here to head over there and click the picture to embiggenize.  The Lightning Thief will be out on President’s Day 2010.

Thanks to Andrea as always for the tip.
