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. Question is, following less impressionable acts like the Clash of the Titans remake and Tarsem Singh’s Immortals, have audiences grown tired of seeing ancient world mythology given the modern pop-action movie treatment (see: slick digital visuals, 3D effects, etc.)?
