This week we'll see the first film focusing on the mythological Greek hero Hercules with Kellan Lutz taking the lead in The Legend of Hercules (formerly known as Hercules: The Legend Begins). With a January release date and Die Hard 2 director Renny Harlin, there isn't much hope for this film that feels like a cheap 300 knock-off, but maybe the Summit Entertainment film has some surprises in store. For anyone who might not be convinced, one final trailer has popped up as a last ditch effort to get audiences into theaters Friday, and if you're interested enough to look behind the scenes, there's a featurette too. Watch!
Here's the final trailer for Renny Harlin's The Legend of Hercules from Summit Entertainment:
And here's the behind the scenes featurette from Spin Media:
The Legend of Hercules 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.
