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.
 





So yeah, I think it's fair to see that the former WWE star's take on Hercules will probably be the most bad-ass to date! In the latest issue of Empire Magazine, director Brett Ratner is quoted as saying, "You're gonna see a lot of brutality and violence, but I call it Jackie Chan violence because you don't see blood splattering across the wall. It's not quite as gory as the graphic novel, but it does have the same sense of deconstructing the myth. This is the antithesis of all the movies about gods and monsters."

still not thrilled about the Hercules armor design..it's like the couldn't decide if he would or wouldn't wear armor so did a lukewarm compromise...but! looks fun, at least good to see on Netflix

Not the biggest fan of Ratner( I did like Tower Heist though), but I am a big Rock fan, so I am curious to see the movie.

Yeah, I don't think this is going to do well. I could be wrong but.....

I think those are the only stills I've seen so far where the Rock is NOT yelling like an ape...

The Rock's chest armor looks like it was molded from the chest of a teenage boy.

^Agreed. Shit looks ridiculous on his body. He's too big for that armor. Plastic he man.

IS IT ME OR IS HE WEARING HIS LITTLE BROTHERS CHEST PLATE ?

HOPEFULLY IT IS LIKE THAT TO SHOW HOW MUCH BIGGER HE IS.

This movie actually looks pretty cool. I love Ancient mythology action movies. I knew I couldn't have been the only one who thought that chest armor looked weird.

Freaking Rock is a bloody Monster!

Bautista needs to get Beast Mode on Guardians of the Galaxy.
He looks soft.

No blood? God dammit...

Wait, ...no blood? WTF? The original comic has HERCULES entourage eating their defeated enemies. I thought they were going to stay true to the original graphic novel ... hope, hope, hope. https://tinyurl.com/ngzq2tw
