We are just under two weeks away from the release of The Legend of Hercules, formerly known as Hercules: The Legend Begins. A lot of changes have been made; the name for one and the other being the release date. However, it looks like everything is finally in order for release. Lionsgate, via their Summit Entertainment label, has released a new clip for the film that highlights the arena battle.
Here is the official synopsis of the film according to IMDb.com.
“The origin story of the the mythical Greek hero. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.”
As they call his name, Hercules makes his way into the arena. Slow at first, he suddenly picks up the pace as he charges in, taking full command of the situation.
Needless to say, there are plenty of people waiting on him in the arena.
One by one he is seamlessly dodging attacks while he is cutting down his enemies. He even pulls off a few moves that would make Morpheus from The Matrix proud.
When he finally reaches his last enemy, he uses his shield to pin someone’s foot to the ground. In what looks incredibly painful, the man screams in pain. Hercules uses his shield as a springboard, jumps high in the air and destroys the man from behind, emerging victorious.
Here is a look at the trailer for the upcoming film The Legend of Hercules.
The film stars Twilight star Kellan Lutz as the legendary Hercules. Also starring in the film are Gaia Weiss, Scott Adkins, Roxanne McKee, Liam Garrigan, and more.
The Legend of Hercules is scheduled to be released on January 10, 2014.
