Paramount has released a new Hercules trailer and poster. Director Brett Ratner‘s “revisionist take on the classic myth” takes place after Hercules’ famous twelve labors, and has him “traveling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle.” As this new trailer shows, there’s a bit of God of War in the mix as the violent hero’s innocent family is killed by the gods, so the hero goes to take violent revenge. And while I’m sure Hercules far less “murdery” than God of War‘s Kratos, there will still be plenty of battles against Greek mythological monsters.

The film opens in 3D on July 25th and stars Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, Rufus Sewell, Robert Maillet, and Irina Shayk.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hercules:

Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ film HERCULES, starring Dwayne Johnson, bows on July 25th. Based on Radical Comics’ Hercules by Steve Moore, this ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth, HERCULES. The epic action film also stars Golden Globe Winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award®-nominee John Hurt.
