Director Brett Ratner explains why you should see Hercules on the biggest screen possible in a new IMAX featurette for this action-adventure, which opens in theaters today. Dwayne Johnson stars as the mythical demi-god, who now serves as a mercenary, fighting battles for others alongside his five trusted warriors. Watch the latest footage as the filmmaker discusses how he created massive sets for this 3D epic and describes why the IMAX format is perfect for Hercules.

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.
