New action-packed trailer for Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson (Video)


It won’t be long now until we see one of the most well-known hero stories of all time play out on the big screen for the second time this year. The mighty Hercules comes crashing into theaters all around the nation in July in a film bearing the same name.

Earlier today, we showed you a new poster for the new film that featured a rather stacked looking Dwayne Johnson, who is set to play the title role in the film.

Now, we have a look at the brand new trailer for the film that gives us a lot of insight into what led Hercules to be the man he turned out to be.

You see, Hercules wanted to be nothing more than a husband to his wife and a father to his children. Unfortunately, all of that came to an end when his entire family was murdered. Now,  Hercules will have to fight with everything he has to find his place in the world and right the wrongs that were committed against his family.

Why don’t you take a look for yourself? Here is a look at the new trailer for the upcoming film Hercules.
