As we said yesterday when we posted two new stills and the first movie poster for Dwayne Johnson and Brett Ratner‘s Hercules, the full trailer should be hitting the Internet later today. Until then you can check out this teaser.
As promised the full trailer has hit the Internet. Let’s get right to it!
OK, that was pretty damn intense. Ian McShane (Deadwood) is the over voice you’re hearing. He could read the phone book and make it exciting. The special effects looked great and it looks like we’ll at least get some glimpses into the Herculean tasks that Hercules has accomplished.
The whole man, myth, or legend aspect that McShane talks about looks to be the underlying lynch pins of the movie as Hercules struggles with what he does with the rest of his life.
What did you think? Will this be the Hercules movie that everyone will reference in the future?
I thought this teaser might come to us yesterday afternoon through Johnson’s Twitter or Facebook page, but they went and switched it up on me. This teaser appeared last night on ET and the full trailer will be announced at #ROCKTALK on Twitter around noon today.
Hmm, that looked interesting. We’ve seen those lion claw marks on Hercules before:
and this one…
I’m not sure how much we’ll actually see of that legendary fight, because the bulk of the movie takes place after Hercules has completed his heroic tasks. The more I see the more I think this movie just might be the break from the big Marvel Comic book movies of the summer that we all need to cleanse our movie going palettes.
The latest synopsis:
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend. Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
