Dwayne Johnson has muscled himself into a Hercules role, but will the 6 foot 5 demigod be able to pull off leading a team of mercenaries to train the Thracian army?
The brand new trailer for Brett Ratner's Hercules just dropped, and we're about find out what all the fuss is about, while watching the titular character lay the smackdown on lots of unsuspecting people. Great.
We've all been smelling what The Rock has been cooking for a few years now. And although some of it smells remarkably bad (Journey 2, Get Smart), the majority of it smells like sweat and pure testosterone.

From the synopsis:
Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has 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… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
Looks pretty mighty to me. What do you guys think? Sound off in the comment section below!
