Today, we've got a blink-and-you'll-miss-it TV spot for Dwayne Johnson and Brett Ratner's [Hercules](movie:365390). In it we see a few flashes to sword and sandal mayhem, including a battle scene, hydra attack and Hercules killing a ferocious and dangerous hay-cart.
Check it out below:
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend. 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.
Of course, 2014 has already seen one Hercules movie, Lionsgate's [The Legend of Hercules](movie:854929). Unfortunately, no one else saw it, because the movie barely made $61 million off a budget of $70 million. Could Johnson's version do any better?
Hercules arrives in theaters on July 25th.
What do you think? Will we have two Herculean flops in 2014?
