“Look at me,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson orders in the new Hercules trailer. (Okay!) “Do I look afraid?” Despite encountering a trap full of angry, tattooed warriors, no; no, he does not look afraid.
Hercules, based on the graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, is directed by Brett Ratner and intended to be a dark, action-packed account of Hercules’s battle to take down a warlord. So basically, this will be nothing like Disney’s version (bummer).
Johnson plays the fearless Hercules with Ian McShane, John Hurt, Joseph Fiennes, and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal also starring. Hercules is expected to hit theaters in July.
