Many attendees at CinemaCon in Las Vegas got an early peek at the upcoming â€œHerculesâ€ trailer and now the rest of the world can watch the same trailer.
Johnson opened Paramount Picturesâ€™ presentation with an entrance of two beating drummers. Latino-Review was present at the event.
â€œBefore we started shooting â€˜Hercules,â€™ Paramount, MGM and I made a pact. We wanted to make a massive global and entertaining movie without really revealing theactual look,â€ said Johnson.
â€œThe goal for me is to completely disappear. I had the hair, full beard and prosthetic penis,â€ he joked. â€œThey insisted, but I didnâ€™t need it.â€
Several photos of Hercules were shown, but from a view behind him.
â€œWe went all out to protect Herculesâ€™ look to not be revealed,â€ he said. â€œI wanted to bring fans along with starting on social media. Hereâ€™s my training. Hereâ€™s my diet. Hereâ€™s my prep. Hereâ€™s what I look like.â€
And he concluded, â€œSo with every pic, I brought the world along Hercules journey without ever, ever showingâ€¦..my face.â€ And now with the trailer, the world gets to see his face.
The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Aksel Hennie and Reece Ritchie.
Based on the Radical Studios graphic novel â€œHercules: The Thracian Wars,â€ the ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.
Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legendâ€¦
Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Herculesâ€™ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevailâ€¦ he must again become the hero he once wasâ€¦ he must embrace his own mythâ€¦ he must be Hercules.
â€œHerculesâ€ will be in theaters on July 25 this year.
