Trailer Debut: ‘The Legend of Hercules’

Hercules

There are two Hercules movies coming out in 2014: one that stars Dwayne Johnson in the title role, and one that stars The Twilight Saga‘s Kellan Lutz. This is the trailer for the latter, The Legend of Hercules.

It’s going to be hard for anyone to muster excitement for this particular re-telling of the Greek legend.

The involvement of director Renny Harlin won’t change matters (nor the credit in the generic, 300esque trailer that this comes from the producers of The Expendables).

Perhaps, though, it could capitalise on the Olympus Has Fallen effect.

That movie, concerning an attack on the White House, looked like the cheap, lamer brother of White House Down.

However, by hitting cinemas first, it eventually came to gross more, and made WHD seem like the rip-off.

The Legend of Hercules hits U.S. cinemas January 10, a full six months before Johnson’s Hercules film.
