The latest trailer for “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” has arrived and skips setting up the premise of the movie in order to play up its action. Everything about the new trailer teases that this movie will be better than its predecessor, 2010’s “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.” Plus, the inclusion of actors like Nathan Fillion, Stanley Tucci and Yvette Nicole Brown gives it a fun twist.

Directed by Thor Freudenthal, “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” also stars Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Douglas Smith and Alexandra Daddario. It’s due in theaters on Aug. 7. Here’s the movie’s plot synopsis:

Based on the publishing phenomenon, “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” continues the young demigod’s epic journey to fulfill his destiny. To save their world, Percy and his friends must find the fabled and magical Golden Fleece. Embarking on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters (known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle), they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate Evil.
