“Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules (Dwayne Johnson), the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace (John Hurt) and his daughter (Irina Shayk) seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.”
According to the myth, Hercules was required to complete twelve labors: the first task was to kill the invulnerable lion which terrorized the hills around Nemea. So I guess we’re seeing the Nemean lion in this motion poster. But the twelve labors aren’t the focus of this movie: it actually follow Hercules later on in his life.
In theaters: July 25, 2014.
