The first trailer has arrived for the newest version of Hercules to hit the big screen, this one starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Hercules, the legendary half-son of Zeus. This looks like it's going to be a fun summer blockbuster flick, with plenty of giant CGI monsters for The Rock to hurl around. Hercules hits theaters July 25th, 2014.
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.
