While fans still have a few more weeks before Hercules debuts on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD, starting November 4, this action-adventure will be available on Digital HD October 21. We have an exclusive preview that takes fans behind-the-scenes with director Brett Ratner and star Aksel Hennie.
Aksel Hennie plays Tydeus, one of the deadly mercenaries in Hercules' group, who brandishes a pair of deadly axes as his primary weapons. This video is part of the "Weapons" featurette on the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray, where we see footage of Aksel Hennie's Tydeus in action, using these twin blades to take out any enemy he sees in front of him.
We also hear from an unidentified crew member, who reveals that they came up with a device allowing Aksel Hennie to hang these weapons on his belt for easy access, and that the actor was rarely seen without the metal weapons on set. In fact, they often tried to talk him into using the safer rubber weapons, but the actor preferred to have the authentic weapons at his side at all times.
