I believe they’ve finally found a formidable actor to play the legendary demigod in the latest adaptation of the Hercules mythology. Live action blends well with CGI and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s beefed up physique–something I’m sure the ladies will love–to display the Greek tale in its greatest visual representation since the days of Kevin Sorbo. In the trailer, we see Hercules battling it out with a Hydra, Cerberus and other mythical creatures among more human opposition. With the bevy of large-scale action and The Rock’s badassdom, it’s no wonder we’ve been waiting so long for this. But, will this be a sign of The Rock’s box-office dominance or prove that there are some stories that shouldn’t be retold? Check out the trailer below and tell me what you think by leaving a post in the comments section. Hercules smashes into theaters on July 25th, 2014.

Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.” [IMDB.com]

    I think even if it sucks, it’ll do numbers. I mean, The Rock is a box-office draw, inside and outside the ring. Plus, this telling of the story, it’s not as flowers-and-sunshine as others…and is more badass than this year’s earlier Hercules movie. For Rock’s sake, since the Fast series may be coming to a deserved end, I’d hope it does numbers (but, then again, this is Hollywood we’re talking about; sequels tend to bring in the cash). Also, since I’m still a fan of ancient Greek-centric butt-kickings (300 Rise of an Empire just didn’t do it for me), you can count at least one butt in the seat LOL

      LoL! Yeah man. As of yet, I’m a little uncertain of how well this will do in the theater. I need to see the next two trailers to know if this will truly be an epic display of cinematography and action. But, from this initial preview I can definitely say i’m intrigued. The Rock as Hercules will forever spark my interest.
