So, Brett Ratner has made a "Hercules" movie that's coming out this summer. It's certainly not a sentence we enjoy writing, but those are the facts and whether or not we like it, this thing is real and happening. But on the plus side, the always magnetic Dwayne Johnson is in the lead. But again, this is a Brett Ratner joint.

Hercules

So, Brett Ratner has made a "Hercules" movie that's coming out this summer. It's certainly not a sentence we enjoy writing, but those are the facts and whether or not we like it, this thing is real and happening. But on the plus side, the always magnetic Dwayne Johnson is in the lead. But again, this is a Brett Ratner joint.

Anyway, the first clip from the movie is here and we'll certainly give the director props for delivering something we're not used to seeing from him. Removed from his usual urban comedy setting, Ratner certainly goes for some pretty big scope and size, and in this first (weirdly edited) clip from the movie, Hercules is threatened, some dudes rise out from the ground, and there is some yelling. Again, this is a "Hercules" movie, so par for the course. And at least it'll be better than that Kellan Lutz movie, right?

"Hercules" arrives on July 25th. Watch below.
