A new international trailer for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters has debuted, and it features lots of cool new footage.

Released by 20th Century Fox, the new trailer throws a lot of epic creatures and Greek myths at us alongside our demigod heroes.

We don’t know about you, but we thought the new trailer gave off a very Harry Potter vibe (especially the cab bit) mixed in with a bit of Wrath of the Titans (the fire monster thingie), but in a cool way.

The only downside: not enough geektastic Nathan Fillion as Greek god Hermes.

Percy Jackson, the son of Poseidon, continues his epic journey to fulfill his destiny, as he teams with his demigod friends to retrieve the Golden Fleece, which has the power to save their home and training ground, Camp Half-Blood.

And where to find the fabled Golden Fleece? Why, in the Sea of Monstersalso commonly known to us mere mortals as the Bermuda Trianglethat's where. Nice vacation spot, we hear.

The Thor Freudenthal-directed sequel to 2010’s hit fantasy flick Percy Jackson & the Olympians stars Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith, Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Leven Rambin, Stanley Tucci, Robert Maillet and Zoe Aggeliki.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will hit theaters on Aug. 7.
