Dwayne Johnson straps on his lion's mane and gets ready for battle in the first clip for Hercules, following the trailer that arrived last month. John Hurt and Rufus Sewell are also featured in this footage where the title character has walked into a trap, although he is nowhere near ready to surrender. Watch as this mythical warrior prepares for his latest fight in director Brett Ratner's action-adventure, in theaters July 25.
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend. Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules' help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail... he must again become the hero he once was... he must embrace his own myth... he must be Hercules.
