Forget about that The Legend of Hercules movie that came out earlier this year. It's already been overshadowed by this summer's Hercules and it doesn't even come out for another four months. That's because the new one stars none other than the monstrous (in stature, at least) real life demigod Dwayne Johnson.
Yes, the second Hercules movie of 2014 is directed by Brett Ratner, who doesn't exactly inspire creative confidence, but we're also talking about a movie and a character that rests squarely on the shoulders of the actor first and foremost. And thankfully for audiences everywhere, Dwayne Johnson is exactly the kind of actor who can make us want to watch a mythical adventure movie about a giant, muscled man who fights lions and hydras and any other creatures foolish enough to get in his way.
Check out the first teaser below. It doesn't show much, and it's still clinging to that Inception "bwahhhhm" for some reason, but it does give us the glorious, delicious cheese of the Rock grunt-shouting "I am Hercules!"
