Dwayne Johnson Stars As Hercules And Here’s The New Trailer

hercules whysoblu 2Honestly I was not going to post this, but it has been stuck in my mind all day.  The world did not need Kellan Lutz as Hercules, but putting The Rock in as Hercules has my attention.  I am a big fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and while I do not go out of my way to praise Brett Ratner, he has more often than not made entertaining films (if he keeps his mouth shut and just directs his films and his actors, his resume is pretty decent).  Now the two have come together to adapt the graphic novels based on the Hercules legend and it looks like a lot of fun.  I may not have cared for the recent Conan film with Jason Momoa, but this Hercules film looks to be a more solid step in the fun that can be had with that kind of story.  Also, The Rock looks freaking massive in this role, fitting of the mythological Greek hero.  Continue on to check out the trailer and see some pics and a poster.
