Do you like ‘300?’ What about ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Troy?’ More importantly, do you like seeing Kellan Lutz without his shirt on? Then you HAVE to see the new trailer for ‘Hercules: The Legend Begins!’ Watch it below!
Kellan Lutz is officially stepping out of the Twilight shadow into a franchise of his own. And if the trailer of Hercules: The Legend Begins is any indication, he’s also out to prove that his six-pack is even more impressive than Taylor Lautner‘s!
Kellan Lutz Is Jacked In ‘Hercules: The Legend Begins’
The Hercules flick definitely takes some cues from other movies from the same time period — 300, Gladiator, Troy, etc. — but it appears that Kellan has been able to breathe new life into a tired topic.
As Hercules, the former Twilight star is (as far as he knows) a bastard son to a queen who is unaware of his true identity and ability. At first just another Greek warrior, he soon learns that he is the son of Zeus, and that’s when things start to get fun.
The movie appears to be a straight origin story, with clear intentions to stretch Hercules’ story into several action-heavy flicks. Which we will not be against — Kellan looks more ripped than ever and thankfully, the Greeks weren’t too keen on wearing shirts.
‘Hercules’: Not Just An Action Movie
Hercules will also feature some romantic elements. First, Kellan’s character will have to decide whether to face his destiny or run off with the Princess of Crete, who has been promised to his own brother. Later on, the romance between Hercules and Princess Hebe is established.
It’s all going to be a ton of fun to see (the movie’s out on Jan. 10), for guys and girls!
