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.
Paramount Pictures has released a brand new trailer for the film featuring Johnson fighting all sorts of large beasts ranging from jungle animal to mythical. 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.
The first trailer for Hercules, a revisionist take on the legend based on a Radical Comics title, has been released online.
The movie stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the title role, and it is directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Tower Heist). The movie also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Aksel Hennie, and Reece Ritchie.

The cast for director Brett Ratner‘s next movie, Hercules, has added a handful of new actors to join Dwayne Johnson, who’s starring in the lead role.
New additions to the cast include Ian McShane (Deadwood, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love, Enemy at the Gates), John Hurt (Alien, Hellboy), Rufus Sewell (Dark City, A Knight’s Tale), Rebecca Ferguson (The White Queen), and Askel Hennie (Headhunters).
This news was reported last week, but if 4th of July festivities kept you a bit out of the loop, Starz announced that they wouldn’t be renewing their original series, Camelot, for a second season.
The reasoning behind the decision is a mixture of things not working out, but the ratings don’t appear to be one of them…at least not primarily. After scoring big numbers in its premiere, ratings did dwindle a bit, but the last few episodes of the first season made an impressive showing and the finale brought in 1.5 million viewers to finish very strong.
One of the reasons the show has been canceled, however, is said to be scheduling conflicts with some of the actors in the cast, which included some top–tier talent like Eva Green and Joseph Fiennes.
