Finally Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson‘s Hercules first UK trailer has arrived , can you smell la la la laaaaaa what the demi god is cooking?!
3 Days before Renny Harlin’s Legend Of Hercules starring Kellan Lutz arrives in the UK we get our look at Brett Ratner‘s version which is making Harlin’s version look lightweight. Johnson plays the titular role in what he has described as a dream role and on the evidence of this new video he doesn’t disappoint especially if it’s dumb fun your looking for.
Based around the Radical Comics version Hercules is an revisionist in which our demi god hero in the middle of the Tharacian War, these are older stories compared delivering more of an origin. It does say it’s in a world minus the supernatural, grounded however we’re sure we do spot an glimpse of a Hydra possibly a Cerebus too. This is based after the legendary 12 Labours Hercules underwent in which he slays a nine-headed hydra and Nemean lion but we have an hunch some of those creatures may still be lurking around. Not even a giant boar can escape Johnson layeth the Smacketh down on it!
Dwayne Johnson is certainly ripped with this film giving him every opportunity to off that mammoth workout the former WWE star went through for the part. This is nonsensical fun one of those films you don’t mind seeing, leaving your brain at the box office and enjoy the ride. I’m not the biggest fan of Spots celebs becoming film stars however Hercules proves Dwayne Johnson has finally proved his worth oozing with passion, probably found his niche.
Is Mr Franchise Viagra about to strike gold once again? All be revealed on 25th July when Hercules arrives in UK? The film co-stars John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet and Irina Shayk.
