First Trailer for HERCULES Starring Dwayne Johnson

The first trailer for director Brett Ratner‘s Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson in the title role, is now online.  The trailer features Hercules fighting off a lot of CGI monsters while grandiose narration builds up the big reveal of Johnson as the Greek demigod.  It’s also a bit strange since the movie was previously billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist,” and I’m pretty sure I spotted a hydra and Cerberus.  However it pans out, this looks like it could be a lot of dumb fun.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, and click on the corresponding links for Johnson talking about Fast & Furious 7, DC superheroes, and G.I. Joe 3.  The film also stars John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph FiennesPeter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet, and Irina ShaykHercules opens in 3D on July 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hercules:

Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ film HERCULES, starring Dwayne Johnson, bows on July 25th.  Based on Radical Comics’ Hercules by Steve Moore, this ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth, HERCULES. The epic action film also stars Golden Globe Winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award®-nominee John Hurt.

      The rock sure is a big guy though

      • Bikoque

        He was bigger in Fast/Furious 6

  • calebrcrawford

    Wow. I realize this judgment is based off of a trailer, but this looks terrible.

  • gosuke5

    I’m guessing that the “fantasy” sequences are just that: fantasy. Herc’s story has grown in the telling and those sequences are how people picture it–not what really occurred. I’ll wait and see more on this one…

  • André Luiz da Silva

    I AM HERCULES

    • Frank

      I LOOK LIKE KEVIN SORBO!

      • fechu1922

        and where is kevin now?… kevin?…. kevin?

      • Frank

        He’s over there doing that God is Dead crap.

      • Bluerunner

        Saw him a recent comic convention, there were 2 ppl in line at his booth, he looked like Al Bundy in the shoe store.

    Pretty sure the scenes showing him fighting monsters are just visualizations of people telling the tales of his legend. If this is based of the comic book, there is minimal supernatural going on…

  • aceshigh

    Love the Rock, but no. Ratner = fail.

    • Frank

      Oh man it’s that guy who did Rush Hour. we’re doomed.

      • ʝoe ßloggs

        Well at least it’ll have Jackie and Chris in it.
        No. Wait.

  • Bikoque

    Not really on my radar… :(
    Hoping for more

  • Sweet Pea

    Definitely a fan of The Rock. This looks horrendous tho, like someone else mentioned Ratner can do no right.

    • Frank

      Rush Hour , Rush Hour 2, Red Dragon, maybe Money Talks ever watch them.

    oh my god is this going to be so… meh. Nobody cares about this film, just like the rock’s face on the poster. It’s a conflicted expression , like WTF am i doing in this movie?, did i make the right call?

    • Frank

      It looks better than Renny Harlin’s piece of garbage.

      • fechu1922

        you are correct sir

  • MJ

    Looks like DJ is constipated in this photo.

  • The Destroyer

    Well there is more stuff from the Heracles myths then that last steaming pile of a movie that came out a few months ago which had little to do with Heracles.

    I didn’t care about this when I heard Brett Rather was attached but this is a damp great trsiler! I’m pumped!!!

  • ColinJ

    Looks predictably bland and Ratner-like.

    • Frank

      Was Rush Hour 2 bland?

      • Sweet Pea

        Yes, a little. Rush Hour 1 wasn’t, at the time.

    Looks predictably bland and Ratner-like.

  • alk

    eh. people just like to shit on ratner. It probably will suck and i don’t really have much faith in Ratner anyways, but people have to admit the trailer at least is exciting. Shut up naysayers. i got a good vibe from the trailer and for once the music isn’t a goddamn enya rehash or clusterfuck of deafening strings. The music was appropriate.

  • Neven

    It doesn’t look special by any means, but it does look far better than the last one. If it wasn’t a Brett Ratner movie, I would actually believe it will be a good movie.

    • Frank

      What do you mean, yes X-men 3 sucked and so did Tower Heist and Rush Hour 3. But I liked Rush Hour 1 and 2 for what it is worth.

      • Neven

        You just answered your own question. I liked Rush Hour 1 and 2 as well, but that was a long time ago. If a guy’s last three movies pretty much sucked, I don’t have a lot of hope for the next one either.

  • Johnson

    I’m really hoping this is good, because, goddamn it, it looks absoulutely awful!…

  • http://tarek-to-verso.over-blog.com/ tarek

    Cinematography looks awful.
    Conan the Barbarian is still the standard, even though it was made 30 years ago. A shame.

  • Osiris

    This seems to be more tongue-in-cheek than the other “sandals and swords” flops that have come out in recent years. At the very least, it looks self-aware.

    Maybe I’m in denial. I just miss the Rock.

  • Faptain America

    Am I the only one who liked this trailer? Especially when that huge lion jumps on him. This could be good.

  • Juvy

    Trailer maker 1: Hey man.. the movie sucks. How can I make the movie look some what respectable?

    Trailer maker 2: Just add some Inception like “GOOOONNNNNGGS”

    Trailer maker 1: Brilliant!

    Trailer maker 2: Brilliant!

  • ʝoe ßloggs

    Why does Hercules in that poster look like Desmond from Lost?

    Actually I reserve that for the Renny Harlin version.

  • Frank

    Hey I only mention the good ones. Not the bad ones. Though Family Man has Nick Cage, so automatic win on it’s part.

  • Sweet Pea

    Lol, sounds like Frank is a Chris Tucker fan! All the films you mention are decent, Rush Hour is the only great film there. Ratner has done far more wrong than right, sorry Frankie baby.
