Originally titled HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS, director Renny Harlin’s THE LEGEND OF HERCULES stars Kellan Lutz as the classic hero – this is one of two Hercules movies hitting next year, the other featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I spoke to Lutz earlier this year at the Dallas International Film Festival about this, which is one of two classic literary heroes he’s tackling, the other being Tarzan. Take a look at the new trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments. The film co-stars Scott Adkins, Liam McIntyre, Liam Garrigan, Jonathon Schaech, Roxanne McKee, Gaia Weiss and Rade Serbedzija.

In the epic origin story THE LEGEND OF HERCULES, Kellan Lutz stars as the mythical Greek hero – the son of Zeus, a half-god, half-man blessed with extraordinary strength. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom. Through harrowing battles and gladiator-arena death matches, Hercules embarks on a legendary odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land.

THE LEGEND OF HERCULES opens January 10, 2014
