If you haven't heard the tale of Hercules outside of the animated Disney version, then you're in for a bloody treat of drama and tragedy. Brett Ratner's adaptation, in theaters this Friday, July 25th, goes way beyond the tale of the strongman's wife, Megara, and picks up on the legend of Herc after the completion of his 12 labors. Dwayne Johnson plays the demi-God, who has the strength of a God but feels the suffering of a human, and is now a sword for hire, traveling with a group of loyal followers.
But it's not just Johnson who's taking Greece and movie theaters by storm. There are four bad-ass women who are going to share that burden with him. Time to get to know these power.
