The Millennium Films’ The Legend Of Hercules is nothing but a distant memory, long to be forgotten. However Brett Ranter‘s upcoming film, Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson may leave a slightly bigger impact on you.

Here we get a more plot-focused trailer which will tell the tale of how Hercules went from muscular humble husband to avenging demi-god. Hit the jump to see the full trailer.
Sure it may be a flashy trailer, but honestly it looks a lot better than Renny Harlin’s The Legend of Hercules, starring Kellen Lutz. Even with all the mythical CGI mayhem, Johnson wearing the Nemean lion skin, while battling the likes of a giant boar and hydra looks like something worth watching.
