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.



Brett Ratner lost the goodwill of many moviegoers thanks to X-Men: The Last Stand, but with Hollywood's highest grossing actor in the title role, Hercules could be something of a redemption story for the filmmaker. It certainly looks like a lot of fun and the action appears to be top notch. What do you guys think? Also starring, Aksel Hennie, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson and Tobias Santelmann, Hercules is set to hit theaters July 25th, 2014.

Still not sure if I'll see this when it hits theaters. May be a TNT watch for me.

Yeah... definitely not on my must-see list. I'll check it out on HBO if I'm bored.

Iron Man was Downey’s only movie of 2013, while Johnson had one huge film, Fast & Furious 6; one big film, G.I. Joe: Retaliation; and two smaller films. Together they added up to $1.3 billion at the global box office.

From Hercules to Black Adam (If he actually is Black Adam), the Rock is portraying ancient badasses! Is that awesome or what?!

These types of movies always blow it featuring barbarians with waxed, sculpted bodies, modern terminology in the scripts, hairstyle and makeup and clothing not possible 1000's of years ago.

Even the settings and dwellings are off. They are often depicted as clean and comfortable with excellent lighting when in fact they would be hot or cold most of the time and filled with flying insects and other pests. Even birds and bats would be a problem.

The people would also be more concerned about food, water and their aching bodies from rotting teeth, viruses, food borne illnesses and untreated injuries to be acting as if they are so content and happy all the time.
And they would be grimy and reek. Grooming would be something they really couldn't worry about.

With no law and order there would be constant problems instead of the civility of organized communities who seem to always trust each other.

Movies like this look so artificial they may as well have cars and cell phones in them to go with the rest of the modernized elements and details they feature.

If this is supposed to be set in Ancient Times, why are his teeth so white? LOL

I say it does about 110 million in the US and 230 million foreign. And I'd say 90% of US audiences will be disappointed to some degree. 100% of audiences in China, South Korea, North Korea and Japan will think it's best picture material.

I just see the rock acting...he'll never be what Arnold is. I love the Rock but he should avoid starring roles in shitty directors movies.

There will be two more Hercules movies than [frick]s given about them.

I'll watch it. IF there's a scene where the Rock beats the ever-loving shit out of Ratner.

There's a scene where he fights a lion. It looks straight outta Frazetta's brain.

I'll be watching this.

Hahaha Supercat said TNT!! You know it'll be on there.

I really wish someone would make movies about classical mythology that aren't just using the names (Clash of the Titans, for instance). This movie seems to at least be trying to tell a fairly straightforward version of the Labors of Hercules, which is exactly the sort the thing I want to see. I really like the Rock, too. Even so...

Brett Ratner = Don't Care
joeschmow013 - 6/27/2014, 8:09 AM
Definately seeing this...swords and sandals + the rock = ass kicking fun :)
NinjaKickTheDamnRabbit - 6/27/2014, 8:54 AM
Really dig the Rock, Pain and Gain was my favorite film he was in. This is going to bomb so badly. Rock, it time to suit up as Black Adam.
