From Paramount Pictures comes this latest still from Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Hercules.’ Based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the action-adventure film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. Directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand), ‘Hercules’ will be distributed worldwide on July 25th. The likes of Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Aksel Hennie, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, and Reece Ritchie also star.
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. This story begins after the labors, and after the legend. Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
Details Arrive About The New Trailer For Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar'; Will Debut With ‘Godzilla’ Next Week
According to reports, the new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s much anticipated sci-fi adventure ‘Interstellar’ made its world premiere today at the Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater in Washington. The school kids and tourists who settled in to watch “Hubble 3D” at the Smithsonian’s Air & Space Museum were treated to an unexpected showing of the promo.
The Washington Post describe the new trailer as follows, “After a brief announcement, the trailer unspooled to show Matthew McConaughey driving his truck through corn fields while a lush orchestral score swelled in the background. Later, the fields had caught fire, an ominous dust cloud could be seen looming over a baseball game, and McConaughey (playing a character named Cooper) was reassuring his daughter that he loved her — right before being shot into space in order to save the world.” The Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater will be the only theater showing the trailer until it appears with ‘Godzilla’ next week.
