Keeping with the new trend of flooding one calendar year with multiple films centering on the same source material and/or character, 2014 will be the year of Hercules. The half-god will impact the summer season with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson holding the sword and Brett Ratner at the helm in Hercules: The Thracian Wars. But first up, Kellan Lutz stars as the mythic Greek hero in The Legend of Hercules, directed by Renny Harlin and due to drop during the January dumping season. Peep the trailer above to see whether it's worth a late matinee during your Oscar-movie-overload detox.
