GREEK GOD: Sean Bean in Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief - VIDEO

SHEFFIELD'S Sean Bean has always been regarded as something of a Greek God - now he plays one, in new family adventure romp Percy Jackson and The Lightening Thief.

VIDEO: Press the play button to watch the trailer.

Sean told The Star: "It's a bit like the Harry Potter series - it's a good old family adventure film.

"We had great fun making the film and it has a great cast."

The film also stars Logan Lerman, in tthe title role, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Catherine Keener, Uma Thurman and former James Bond Pierce Brosnan.

A young boy discovers he's the descendant of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods, based on the book by Rick Riordan.

It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson's Greek mythology texts and into his life.

And they're not happy: Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy's mother. As Percy adapts to his newly discovered status as a demi-god (his father is Poseidon), he finds himself caught between the battling titans of Mt. Olympus.

He and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.
