First TV Spot for Brett Ratner’s HERCULES Starring Dwayne Johnson

     April 13, 2014


The first TV spot for Brett Ratner‘s Hercules has gone online.  Not to be confused with the Hercules movie that came out earlier this year, Ratner’s take on the Greek legend is billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.”  The story takes place after Hercules’ famous twelve labors, and has him “traveling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle.”  This TV spot contains some new footage including Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) throwing a goddamn horse.

Hit the jump to check out the Hercules TV spot.  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.

    I preferred the cuddly toy lion in ‘The Legend Of Hercules’, as it gave me perhaps my greatest movie laugh of the year… it was truly funny…Monty Python funny.

    The big hog in this looks epic… I must admit.

    if the supernatural doesn’t exist what is with all the supernatural creatures. this movie looks so bad.

    Can’t tell about this movie. I want it to be good only because of the Rock. Guy is an amazing human being. I have a feeling since this is suppose to be a realistic take on Hercules that the supernatural stuff must be it told through form of flashback in a slanted view (like Beowulf did).
