There will be two Hercules movies hitting theaters in 2014. One stars Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 7) – playing an older version of Herc who has devolved into a world-weary mercenary for hire – while the other is titled Hercules: The Legend Begins and features Twilight alum Kellan Lutz playing a younger version of Zeus’ son (who could be mistaken for a JCrew model).
Much like the Comic-Con preview footage, the newly-unveiled trailer for The Legend Begins illustrates the continuing influence of Zack Snyder’s 300 on the swords and sandals genre.
