The first teaser trailer for that other Hercules film, the one with Dwayne Johnson, has arrived, and you know what, its actually pretty good!
If you want a real big muscular Hercules, and lots of really big, vicious monsters and a soundtrack that hints at some epic darkness and a big big film, then this trailer is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. Dwayne Johnson, with his new long hair, actually looks quite fitting for the part too. Never thought I’d say this, but I am excited!
Hercules is directed by Brett Ratner (Tower Heist, X-Men: The Last Stand), and Ryan Condal adapted the screenplay from Steve Moore’s comic. Dwayne Johnson stars as Hercules, and he is joined by John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet, and Irina Shayk.

The epic action film also stars Golden Globe Winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award®-nominee John Hurt.
Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labours and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and women never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.
