'Ray Winstone' can be briefly seen as Ares at Olympus. In some shots, you can see him sitting on his throne in between Demeter and Athena, whereas others, he has gone.

Goofs
In the scene after Percy severs Medusa's head, there is no blood on his sword. After when walking to meet his friends he is seen wiping blood from it.

When Percy sees the final pearl in the Lotus Casino, on the spinner, it is on slot 33. When Percy picks it up later, it is on slot 15. While the number did change where the pearl was located, Percy was away from the table to rescue Grover and Annabeth. It is highly probable that the dealer collected the pearl and spun again as he would in a "regular casino" to keep up the illusion.

When Percy, Annabeth and Grover come to Luke to ask for help he is playing Call of Duty with a Playstation 3 controller while on screen Xbox 360 buttons are seen.

Q
What does Medusa mean, "I used to date your daddy"?
A
In Greek Mythology, Poseidon was having an affair with Medusa, the most beautiful of all women in Athens. Stories differ, but it's claimed that Poseidon took Medusa and they had sex in Athena's temple (others claim he raped her, which is still HUGELY disrespectful to do it in a temple of a Goddess). Athena, unable to punish Poseidon, punished Medusa by turning her hair into snakes, one look of which can turn people to stone. It's implied that this has caused her to go mad and become "friends" with statues, as she cannot with regular mortals.
Q
Will there be more movies based on the other Percy Jackson novels?
A
A second movie in this series is currently in production, based on the second book, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013). All main actors (Percy, Annabeth, Grover and Luke) signed a three movie contract. Therefore, Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse should be filmed as well.
Q
How much sex, violence, and profanity are in this movie?
A
For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief can be found here.
