Finally we are getting some images and a teaser trailer for this summer’s “Rock” version of the classic demigod story Hercules. The film is directed by Brett Ratner and is based on a revisionist Herc story, a prequel to the story we know of sorts that originally appeared in graphic novel form and was call Hercules: The Thracian Wars. In many ways this film has the cards stacked against it. Brett Ratner doesn’t exactly have a stellar directing record only offering somewhat successful guilty pleasure franchise Rush Hour and most notably crushing the X-Men franchise with the third installment. Then there;s the fact that The Legend of Hercules starring a Twilighter was already in theaters and performed poorly. The two films featuring the same character could cause some confusion. Finally 300: Rise of an Empire was just in theaters, did well, and featured epic swords and sandles battles. So yes Dwayne Johnson has a lot to overcome to make this movie not only good, but also successful. If anyone can do it he can. Take a look at the trailer and decide for yourself!
