The first trailer for Hercules is set for release later this week but MGM and Paramount have already leaked a couple of production stills from the upcoming summer blockbuster. Directed by Brett Ratner, the film stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the title role alongside Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie, Reece Ritchie and Tobias Santelmann.
Based on the graphic novel, Hercules: The Thracian Wars, the plot unfolds after everything that people know about the legend and labors of the massive hero.
This version will feature Hercules, along with five companions, traveling to ancient Greece while haunted by a sin from his past. The ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek to defeat a savage warlord and enlist the services of Hercules who, despite his recent doubts, must summon all of his courage and power to become the hero he once was.
The film will hit theaters on July 25, 2014.
