Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters promotion has been kicking it into high gear lately, and the latest still to be released shows Nathan Fillion as Hermes, the messenger god.
The image comes via @PercyMovies, the official Twitter account for Sea of Monsters. They asked for 1,000 tweets using the #PercyJackson hashtag before we could get a glimpse of photo.
The quest begins! The gods demand 1,000 tweets using #PercyJackson as an offering. Once they are satisfied the image will descend Mt Olympus

Merely an hour ago the demigods reached the goal, and they released an official still of Nathan Fillion playing Hermes:
Hermes is in disguise as a UPS employee, which is appropriate as he is the god of messengers. He’s also the god of travel and thieves, among other things. In the books, Hermes is Luke’s father and an ally to Percy and his friends. He helps Percy by giving him a quest and offering several magical items, including a thermos that holds winds from the four corners of the Earth, as seen in the recently released trailer.
ComingSoon also brings us a first look at the official poster that should be making its way around the country’s theatres over the coming months.
In recent news, Fillion spoke out about how the main trio in the movie (Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, and Brandon T. Jackson) has “restored my faith in humanity.”
Don’t forget to check out the other official stills that were released for the film, which includes a look at Stanley Tucci as Dionysus!
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters comes out on August 16. It stars Lerman as Percy, Daddario as Annabeth, Jackson as Grover, and Jake Abel as Luke. Fillion (Hermes), Tucci (Dionysus), Leven Rambin (Clarisse), and Douglas Smith (Tyson) also star.
