Uma Thurman's Medusa Weave Unleashed — Is This The Next Harry Potter?

With angels and gods on the rise, it's only a matter of time before Chris Columbus' film adaptation of The Lightning Thief becomes your kids' next deranged obsession. This could well be the next Potter, especially with a Uma Medusa.

The movie, which is based on a YA series about gods and their demigod kids centers around Percy Jackson, here's the official synopsis:

Trouble-prone teen Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out school but that's the least of his problems. The gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters seem to have walked out of the pages of Percys Greek mythology texts and into his life

With Legion and the winged teen series Hush, Hush and Fallen on the rise, we're predicting big things for The Lightning Thief. Lightning Thief will be in theaters Feb. 12 2010.

it wont be the next Harry Potter for 2 reasons:

1 - the Harry Potter books were huge well before the first movie - and these books (while very good I think) are not in that league.

2 - the filmmakers desperately want it to be - audiences can smell this a mile away...

PS - I love you Uma.
