Dwayne Johnson Takes Hercules to Next Level in New Television Spot

The countdown is on for the theatrical release of “Hercules.” The film, starring Dwayne Johnson, features the popular wrestler-turned-actor as one of Greek mythology’s greatest heroes.

Johnson has already earned the right to be called “badass”–he is the The Rock, after all. But you’ll see in this new television spot that Johnson takes the role of Hercules to the extreme. As Fox Sports’ Mike Botticello writes, he “takes badass to the next level.” Take a look at the clip for yourself and see what you think.

“Hercules” is presented by Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. The film, which also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and John Hurt, is based on Radical Comics’ “Hercules” by Steve Moore. The film is billed as a “revisionist take on the classic myth, Hercules.” The film will hit theaters July 25.

You can learn more about the film at its website, the #TeamHercules site, the movie’s official Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages and the site for the I Am Hercules app.
