Dwayne Johnson takes on a Hydra in new Hercules teaser: watch now

The bigger they are…

Hercules has released an extended TV spot online, in which Dwayne Johnson’s eponymous hero finds himself going toe to toe with a fearsome Hydra.

The many-headed beastie is just one of a whole host of foes Herc will be pitted against, as he sets about reclaiming his reputation after several years in the wilderness.

Fortunately, he’ll have sage old Ian McShane in his corner, laying the groundwork for some buddy-banter in amongst the swinging swords and whistling arrows…

Take a look at the new TV spot, below…



The new TV spot is quite light on plot in favour of big, booming action, but in terms of selling the film as a spectacle, it gets the job done pretty efficiently.

Directed by Brett Ratner and co-starring John Hurt, Rufus Sewell and Joseph Fiennes, Hercules will open in the UK on 25 July 2014.
