First poster and trailer teaser for Brett Ratner's Hercules

MGM and Paramount have released the first poster and a 20 second teaser for the trailer for Brett Ratner’s take on the Hercules legend, Hercules. The poster is pretty weak, with Herc looking more giant than demigod. Thankfully the teaser looks much more impressive.

The film is set after the famous 12 labours, and sees him “travelling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle.”

Dwayne Johnson is the suitably muscled figure playing the titular demigod, with the cast also boasting Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joe Anderson, Peter Mullan, and Rufus Sewell.

Hercules is out in Irish cinemas on August 8th.
