‘Hercules’ Trailer: Dwayne Johnson Displays Hero’s “Tragedy” & “Pain”

Dwayne Johnson who these days is the veritable master of franchises, is going big (or going home) in Hercules, an ambitious Paramount Pictures/MGM production that’s slated for a July 25 release. The project, directed by Brett Ratner (Tower Heist, Rush Hour films), is based on Radical Comics’ Hercules: The Thracian Wars by Steve Moore.

Last year, Mr. Johnson pointedly talked about respecting the mythology of Hercules, giving viewers a story that’s filled with its share of tragedy and pain. The movie features an all-star cast that includes Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, and John Hurt (who’ll next be seen as a vampire in Only Lovers Left Alive).

The Herculestrailer, which features Johnson screaming “I am Hercules!!!!” is featured below:
