Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Is Hercules — Watch Trailer
The only thing more intense than the blasting sound effects in today’s brand new released Hercules trailer is The Rock. Yes, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is Hercules, and he’s massively strong, extremely loud and pretty much fits the bill of the legendary God perfectly.
The trailer reminds viewers that “Before he was a legend, he was a man” so we know that the summer blockbuster, which is set to be released in July 2014, will tell the story of Hercules in his pre-God phase. And let’s just say, he wasn’t any less mighty.
The trailer begins with an intense voiceover: “No matter how far you go, man cannot escape his fate.” It continues to speak to The Rock’s Hercules, asking “Who are you? Are you a murderer? Are you a mercenary who turns his back on the innocent? We believe in you. We have faith in you. Remember the deeds you have performed.”
And then a huge sea monster, ginormous roaring lion, multiple attacking beasts and battle wages on. And who comes in to save the day? You guessed it — Hercules.
“Are you only the legend or are you the truth behind the legend?” the voiceover shouts.”Who are you?”
Make sure to watch the entire trailer to catch The Rock’s epic ender: “I am Hercules!”
