New Trailer for Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" Arrives Online

Posted: June 3rd, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
New Trailer for Dwayne JohnsonSubmit Comment
Today we have a new trailer for Dwayne Johnson's upcoming "Hercules" film. Check it out below, in addition to a new poster and an international trailer that has even more footage.

Plot: 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.

"Hercules" is directed by Brett Ratner and co-stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, and John Hurt. It's set to hit theaters on July 25th.

That is, by far, the most inspired, original and creative movie poster I have ever seen.

Eat your heart, Drew Struzan, because you're no match for the power of layers and fonts.

The Rock is horribly miscast. It's funny that for all his brawn and sinew, he can't convincingly pass as the Greco-Roman divine hero.

I have a strong hunch this film will end up being 2014's biggest summer bomb. Would've chosen "Jupiter Ascending", but that's impossible now as of yesterday.

"The Rock is horribly miscast"

Absolutely right! Plus the wig makes him look even more unreal.

In comparison Kirk Douglas was much believable as Ulysses in 1954.

Well, being white helped Kirk a good deal, too, I'm sure. But to boot, Kirk was always championed for his chops as an actor than his physicality whereas with The Rock, it's the inverse. Granted, I've always given the guy some rope as he appears humble about his success, and I suspect he's got some untapped charisma beneath the broad shoulders and chiseled pecs, but I have no faith in this movie bringing out his best qualities.

Folks will scoff, but I sincerely believe "Pain & Gain" - a film which I loved, by the way (*GASP*) - wrought the best performance we've yet to see from the guy. A meat/cokehead bodybuilder doesn't exactly sound like a stretch for him, I admit, but given the saccharine, candyass nature of most of his flicks (e.g., "The Game Plan", "The Tooth Fairy", et. al.), it was nice to see him gravitate to darker material for a change and, what's more, show a palpable sense of excitement, which fit the manic tone and "anything can happen" nature of the script wonderfully.

But back to "Hercules": a Samoan guy just doesn't match up with anyone's conception of an ancient European warrior myth. Not a soul.

If the filmmakers would just shatter their delusions and brand this another "Scorpion King" movie, that'd probably increase its chances of success.

Wait, so Rufus Sewell is not playing the villain?

What universe is this?

It was acceptable for Kirk to play Ulysses because there were no active A-lister Greeks or Romans working back then, just as there were no A-lister Persians for The Prince of Persia.

You have to compromise. Do you hire a sh*tty Persian actor for your big-budget Persian-esque film, or do you hire a popular capable actor who will help bring in the bucks to do the role because you know very, very few in the audience don't give a f*ck?

That's why Kirk was chosen. That's why Jake was chosen. Had nothing to do with being white specifically, because the vast majority of the people working in Hollywood back then were white.



"But back to "Hercules": a Samoan guy just doesn't match up with anyone's conception of an ancient European warrior myth. Not a soul."

European, no, but Mediterranean? Perhaps. They're a bit darker than Scandinavians, and Johnson fits that sea-and-sun toned look rather well. Definitely a better choice than Kevin Sorbo. And really, what brawny A-lister were they going to hire instead of The Rock? John Cena? Oh wait, I said A-lister.

They did the best in casting they could, and writing and marketing is what's going to hurt this film, that and audiences who aren't interested in yet another Scorpion King.

The bad one, apparently.
