Dwayne Johnson is showing his strength as the title character in three new television spots for his latest adventure film, ‘Hercules.’ The videos, titled ‘Born,’ ‘Epic’ and ‘Rock,’ follows Hercules, the leader of a band of mercenaries, as he and his followers are fighting in action. The three clips are the most recent chronicle of the actor’s portrayal of the Greek hero in the film from ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ director, Brett Ratner.
The Paramount Pictures and MGM adaptation of ‘Hercules,’ which is now playing in theaters, also stars Ian McShane, Reece Ritchie, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Joseph Fiennes and John Hurt. The epic movie is based on Radical Comics’ ‘Hercules’ by Steve Moore, and is a revisionist take on the classic myth of the title hero.
‘Hercules’ follows the title character, who’s both man and myth, as he leads a band of mercenaries to help end a bloody civil war in the land of Thrace. The group also wishes to return the rightful king to his throne. However, being a tormented soul from birth, Hercules has the strength of a God but feels the suffering of a human.
