We finally get to see some footage for the hotly anticipated ‘Hercules’ flick starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The buffed actor can been seen taking on a huge lion while sporting long hair and a beard. He emerges with the beast’s pelt as he is seen walking over a number of dead bodies.
Synopsis for “Hercules”:
“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.”
Written by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos, the flick is based on a graphic novel of the same name.
The pic also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Askel Hennie, and Reece Ritchie. “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” opens on July 25, 2014.
