We’ve seen Dwayne Johnson literally kill it in the Hercules trailer, and now we have our first clip to give the Brett Ratner film some true context.
In the clip, called We’ve Walked Into a Trap, Johnson is Hercules and he and his army walk onto a battlefield that appears to be littered with dead bodies. They’re not dead. They’re lying in wait -- to strike!
Besides Johnson being impeccably cast as the hero, Hercules also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes and the legendary John Hurt.
Look for Hercules in theaters July 25 which finds the classic hero being haunted by his violent past. He becomes a mercenary and with his five closest friends, they travel ancient Greece offering his expertise in bringing foes to their knees.
But one particular mission will find our hero having to channel all that made him great… and feared.
We’re seriously intrigued about this one because it is based on the Radical Studios graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
And might we add that we think that a hero as large as Hercules is worthy of two films in one calendar year, after Kellan Lutz played the part in The Legend of Hercules.
