It’s hard being Hercules.

Sure, he can kill a lion as it leaps toward him off a cliff and fashion its skull into a hat, but the son of Zeus (Dwayne Johnson) has more domestic aspirations in Brett Ratner’s latest. Unfortunately, a tragic turn of events sets him down a different path, and Hercules must step up to defend mortals against some unrelenting descendents of Hades.

Check out the second, somewhat spoiler-heavy trailer after the jump.

Ian McShane, John Hurt, Joseph Fiennes, and Rufus Sewell also star in Hercules, set to hit theaters July 25.
