Dwayne Johnson a.k.a. The Rock is Hercules in this brand new trailer for Brett Ratner’s latest film.
This looks slightly better than the Kellan Lutz movie The Legend of Hercules which came out earlier this year and garnered a 3% on Rotten Tomatoes. For one thing, this has The Rock and he’s slow-mo fighting a lion and then using its head as a fashion accessory. It’s also based on the two-part Hercules comic book series by Steve Moore: The Thracian Wars and The Knives Of Kush.
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend…
Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
Hercules stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Irina Shayk, and Barbara Palvin. It will be released worldwide on July 25, 2014.
