Uma Thurman and her hissing hair

Feb. 03, 2010 | 10:33 p.m.


Here’s a look at Uma Thurman in the role of Medusa in “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” which hits theaters Feb. 12 with aspirations of knocking “Avatar” out of that top spot at the box office. And yes, that’s an iPhone Thurman’s got, and since Percy (Logan Lerman) is about to swing his sword at her neck, I’m guessing this scene might have a one-liner about “a killer app.”

Our Rachel Abramowitz previously talked to “Percy” director Chris Columbus about Thurman, her slithering scalp and her alluring appeal, you can read that story right here

    stinky stinky stories, probably plageristic,i bet they are, they swiped them from old Twilight or Outer Limits stories, or some of those old scifi writers back when, and the photography and special effects, there is still better on the backs of ceral boxes, where do these guys get the idea they are making movies, the products are a disgrace to the fields of photography and cinima tech, give us a break

    In Greek mythology, Perseus defeats medusa with the help of Athena's highly polished shield, which he uses to see her reflection (as looking at her directly will turn ya to stone!).
    Here Medusa uses a highly polished iphone to see her own death coming… coincidence? I think not…
