The second trailer for The Legend Of Hercules was released, starring Kellan Lutz as the man himself on the journey to discover who he really is.
The trailer begins with Hercules fighting for his life in a coliseum, with flashes focusing on the love story between Hercules and the Princess of Crete. Unfortunately for them, she is betrothed against her will to Hercules' own brother, by his stepfather, the king. To make matters worse, Hercules' father sends him to exile in Egypt to fight for his life as a gladiator.
In Greek mythology, Hercules' mother, the queen, bears Hercules from an affair with the Greek God Zeus, promising Hercules' destiny to overthrow the king and restore peace to the land. As the trailer goes forward, he learns of this destiny and must choose to fulfill it or run off with his true love.
Even though the Twilight alum has quite the following, which Entertainment Weekly suggests is because of his abs-on-abs body structure, Screen Crush noted that this will be a hard road for the usual supporting actor to breakthrough as a lead, especially with a supporting cast that includes Spartacus star Liam McIntyre and action star Scott Adkins.
The Legend Of Hercules, directed by Renny Harlin, is set to hit theaters January 10, 2014.
