Dwayne Johnson stars in new 'Hercules' trailer

According to Cinema Blend on March 25, the new trailer for "Hercules", starring Dwayne Johnson, debuts in his new movie trailer. Brett Ratner, the same director to have been a part of the "X-Men: The Last Stand" film, is also helming this project as well.

Though it may not be encouraging to some that Ratner has taken on this project, the scenes shown do seem to show some promise. Hercules is seen taking on a good amount of mythological creatures and adversaries in the trailer in action sequences that seem to portray a style none other than "Clash of the Titans". It appears he takes on typical creatures that are seen in this world, but they are quite sizable and more fierce in nature. Johson appears to be brandishing a long haired, bearded "Grizzly Adams" look and can pretty much handle himself with even the most bluntest of weapons.

Johnson also mentioned the kinds of DC cinematic characters he'd like to play as well.

"Hercules" opens in theaters come July 25.
