Today on his Facebook page, The Rock (Not Dwayne Johnson, he’ll always be The Rock to me) released the new trailer for his upcoming film Hercules. I’m sure many of you will watch this and cry that it’s just another bloated Hollywood cash grab. I don’t care though. I also don’t care that it’s directed by the bigot Brett Ratner. Because here’s the thing, The Rock is playing Hercules and it’s living up to how I would want a Hercules movie starring The Rock to be. He punches a guy and the guy goes flying like ten feet. He runs up a tree to dodge a boar and then drops a skull-crushing blow to it. He drops his bow and arrow and decides to fist fight a lion, because only weak men fight a lion with anything but their bare hands. He gets cheesy lines like “I…AM….HERCULES!!!!”. I’m sold.
Hercules is directed by Brett Ratner and stars Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, John Hurt, Joseph Fiennes and Rebecca Ferguson. Hercules will be released July 25th. Check out the trailer below.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Uro03xQwrA&w=560&h=315]
