Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ new epic adventure “Hercules” starring Dwayne Johnson in the title role, have revealed its teaser and main poster art.
Directed by Brett Ratner and based on Radical Studios graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars by Steve Moore, this ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The screenplay is by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos.
The epic action film also stars Golden Globe Winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award®-nominee John Hurt.
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our 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.
Opening across the Philippines on July 23, “Hercules” will be distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
