Hercules: The Legend Begins

Next year comes another installment in the long-running Hollywood trend of dueling films from similar studios. Last year it was Snow White and the Huntsman and Mirror Mirror, and this year it's Brett Ratner's Hercules and Hercules: The Legend Begins from director Renny Harlin. Now we have a theatrical trailer for the latter which has been given a telling release date in early January, trying to get a leg up on Ratner's summer release about the Greek hero. Kellan Lutz plays the title hero who must choose to flee with his true love, the Princess of Crete, or to fulfill his destiny by overthrowing the tyrannical rule of the king and restoring peace. This looks just like a bad 300, but with Hercules instead of the Spartans. Watch?

Here's the theatrical trailer for Renny Harlin's Hercules: The Legend Begins, originally from Yahoo:

And here's the first official poster for the Greek epic Hercules: The Legend Begins, found via IMPAwards:

Hercules: The Legend Begins

Hercules: The Legend Begins is directed by Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2), who also wrote the film with Daniel Giat (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee), Sean Hood (the new Conan the Barbarian) and newcomer Giulio Steve. In 1200 B.C. Greece, a queen gives birth to a son, fathered by Zeus, who is destined to overthrow the tyrannical rule of the king and restore peace to a suffering land. But this prince, Hercules (Kellan Lutz), knows nothing of his real identity or his destiny. He wants only the love of Hebe, Princess of Crete, who has been promised to his brother. When Hercules learns of his greater purpose, he must choose: flee with his true love or fulfill his destiny and become a true hero. Summit releases the film on January 10th, 2014.

do we really need two Hercules

Did we really need two White House movies? (Olympus Has Fallen/White House Down) Or two end of the world movies? (This Is the End/Rapturpalooza)

What a complete 300 Rip Off!

I literally thought he was about to say "tonight we dine in hell" lol

Exactly! Ripping off the visuals is one. But even copying the one-liners is too much. I guess I'll pass and wait for the real deal. (Rise of an empire) They've got Snyder on the wheel.

The worst movie and most poorly edited movie trailer I have seen this year. This looks so bad it's not even funny. It's like the Sci-Fi Channel equivalent of Hercules. So lets see what are they ripping off, Spartacus (Check), 300 (Check), Immortals (Check), Clash of The Titans Remake? (Check). Oh boy...even though I am not excited so much for The Rock Hercules movie I know it's definitely going to be better.

terrible on a multitude of levels

Amen. Why o why has Hollywood kept up that trend of trying to "duel" films. Surely they LOSE more money than they make, just because of how bad the end product almost always ends up being..? Whereas the money could be going to directors/dps/artists/teams/produciton banners with unique and incredible ideas. Or ending world hunger... either would be fine :D.

They really kept his dialogue to a minimum in this trailer... just saying.

This is for a low budget tv show right?

Spartacus 3000

Let us hope the "Legend" ends here.

"From The Director of Die Hard 2" Maybe just don't put any prior credits on the poster?

OfficialJab on Nov 26, 2013

15

Yeah, that might have meant something in the early 1990s.

cobrazombie on Nov 26, 2013

16

except 2 was widely known as the worst Die Hard by far

adam lamonica on Nov 26, 2013

In what world? Many fans like Die Harder. You saying it's worse than Live Free?

cobrazombie on Nov 27, 2013

18

I love Die Harder. It's just not a good director's credit. I also loved Live Free. 1>4>2>5>3

OfficialJab on Nov 27, 2013

19

how in god's name was 3 the worst? 1>3>4>2>5

adam lamonica on Nov 27, 2013

Well apart from 3, we're not far off from one another. I feel nothing when I watch it. Simon is okay. 5's long car chase was very good, and the shot near the end when they're falling through the floors of the building, but otherwise is the same to me. In and out.

Written by the dude who scripted that horrible Conan the Barbarian movie? This movie has no hope and is not worthy enough to lick the sandals of Starz Spartacus.

cobrazombie on Nov 26, 2013

22

wow what a horrible joke! Lets hope Ratner's version is actually good! Shouldnt this be marked "Dont Watch" ? cheese

Jim Dawkins on Nov 26, 2013

Error_Sapiens on Nov 27, 2013

steve james on Nov 27, 2013

LosZombies on Nov 27, 2013

Really gladiators in Acient greece?

Nuno Lopes on Nov 27, 2013

28

Looks like an all new idea there. But at least they did not cast some jog to play the Hercules.. :/

Jamie Holmes on Nov 27, 2013

starz spartacus can get it so right why can't studios see this...instead of making these watered down versions of the same era...i'd rather sit at home and watch the bringer of rain slay theocoles!!!!!!!!!!!!
