Since I follow the Rock on twitter (who knows when he might hint at another super secret military intervention before the president of the US) we have been seeing his dedicated transformation to become the mythical superhero Hercules.
Directed by Brett Ratner (he who is hated so much by the geek community) and focussing on the Thracian Wars, unlike Renny Harlin’s Legend Of Hercules (releasing to much less fan fare this friday in the UK) which was much more a prequel to the godly character.
The Rock is awesome even if he looks quite silly with a lion’s head on his head, but I’d watch pretty much anything with the man in it.
This is a short teaser but I’m sure we’ll be hearing and seeing quite a bit more around the July 25th when the movie hits our shores.
Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ film HERCULES, starring Dwayne Johnson, bows on July 25. Based on Radical Comics’ ‘Hercules,’ this ensemble-action film, featuring an international cast, is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. HERCULES also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and John Hurt.
