Paramount Pictures have released the trailer of Hercules days before the release of the Russel Crowe starrer Noah in India. Hercules has Dwayne Johnson playing multiple roles apart from the titular role and is directed by Brett Ratner of X-men The Last Stand fame. The cast of the film consists of Golden Globe winner Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, Irina Shayk Rufus Sewell, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Fergusson, Ingrid Bolso, Aksel Hennie and Reece Ritchie. The Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures movie is slated to release on the 24th of July 2014.
This is the second film to come out this year about the mythical Greek hero after the Kellan Lutz and Gaia Weiss starrer The Legend Of Hercules. Hollywood can't seem to get enough of the tales of the demi-God! This movie is based on the Radical Comics' Hercules: the Thracian Wars by Steve Moore.
The Legend Of Hercules was a box office failure, which was made at an estimated $70 million and grossed a mere $19 million approx. How well will the Dwayne Johnson Hercules do, which is made at a budget of $110 million, is just a matter of time. The trailer does look like the film will be packed with some heavy-duty action and magnificent visuals, it is to be seen if the audience will give the film claps or slaps!
