[Movies] New Trailer Released For Hercules Starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.25.2014



A new CinemaCon trailer has been released for Hercules, which will be released in 3D and 2D on July 25. The film is directed by Brett Ratner and stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Hercules along with Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie, Reece Ritchie and Tobias Santelmann.

Superhero Hype spoke with Johnson about the film. Here are highlights:

On this version of Hercules: "When we meet this version of Hercules, he's gone through a tremendous amount of trauma and anguish of the fact that (his family is dead). When he's introduced in this story, he doesn't care about his faith and who everyone claims him to be. It doesn't matter to him, because he doesn't have his family anymore."

On working with Brett Ratner: "There was a lot of directors that had their hands up and we met with a lot of directors coming in. I thought Pete Berg was going to direct it and then we went in a different direction and met with a lot of directors. Brett came to the table very passionate about the project–as all directors do–but the difference with Brett (and I've known him for a long time) is that I got him at a very special time. He has had great success, he's been down, he's got back up and it's in that come-up where I was able to get Brett, where he knew he had this great opportunity and he was very passionate about Hercules and about doing something that was very special. Also, I got a very hungry Brett Ratner. He's a talented guy and a fun guy and it was good to see him at this level and raise his game."

On finally getting to play the role of Hercules: "It's everything I'd hoped it to be and more. You never know with a movie this size and scope and a lot of different elements going on, where if you're going to make it, you get one shot at it. It's not like an action-comedy or an action movie that plays today, where you have a little bit of leeway, latitude, with what you shoot and what you can get away with. With something like this – (that's so) epic in nature – it is Hercules, and he's the world's first superhero. There've been versions in the past, but we wanted to make the definitive Hercules. So going into it, there's a lot of unpredictability. You hope that everyone comes with their 'A' game, which they did. As you're shooting it, it feels good to you, but you never know, but you hope, and you have your gut sense. But in this case, yeah, it's everything that I'd hoped it to be."
