While there are plenty of legitimate complaints to be raised about the advent of “the Twitter age,” the social media service has offered some neat looks into the filmmaking world. Everyone from Marc Webb to Bryan Singer has used Twitter as a tool to offer fans a look behind-the-scenes at their latest films, and Dwayne Johnson has been doing the same when it comes to his passion project Hercules. Directed by Brett Ratner, the film is described as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.” We’ve already seen a couple of teases of Johnson in costume, and now the actor has offered a few more looks at the set, including an impressive shot of the Thracian soldiers.
Hit the jump to check out the latest images. The film also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Askel Hennie, and Reece Ritchie. Hercules opens on July 25, 2014.
