I don't know anyone who is actually really excited about seeing Dwayne Johnson's new fantasy action film Hercules. I have a feeling that the Brett Ratner-directed film is going to bomb at the box office. It's kind of a shame because I think Hercules could have been an amazing movie, and Johnson put an incredible amount of effort into transforming himself into this character. I hope it pays off for them, but the movie looks mediocre at best. We've got a new TV spot for you to check out today that has a few bits of new footage, if you're interested.
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.
The movie comes out on July 25th.
