Hercules

The theatrical trailer for MGM and Paramount's epic Hercules didn't really do much to turn our crank. Part of the problem seems to be Dwayne Johnson looking the part, but not really fitting the role of the Greek mythological hero. Johnson just doesn't have the right presence as an actor to make it work, despite his hulking presence as an action star. Alas, the film is still coming this summer, and it'll be the first one from director Brett Ratner we've gotten in quite some time. Now a new TV spot shows off a bit more from the film, including Johnson heading off to do something foolish, like starring in a Hercules movie. Watch!

Here's the first TV spot for Brett Ratner's Hercules from the film's YouTube page:

Hercules is directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand), written by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos, and based on Steve Moore's graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, Dwayne Johnson leads the film as Hercules, haunted by a sin from his past and forced to become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules' help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail, he must again become the hero he once was. MGM and Paramount release the film July 25th.

    Brett Ratner?? Geesh, I was wondering why this was looking so... meh. Now I know why. Aside from the "sort of OK" Red Dragon and Rush Hour 1, name a single good thing he has ever churned out. 27 directing credits, 2 kinda good movies. What happened, they couldn't afford to hire McG?
