Kellan Lutz introduces the first peek at Renny Harlin's Hercules: The Legend Begins

Oct. 11, 2013by: Paul Shirey

HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS is gearing up for release next year and star Kellan Lutz wants you to know about it. The actor recorded a video intro from the set of THE EXPENDABLES 3 for a brief teaser of the film, which gives us our first glimpse at Renny Harlin's next venture on the big screen. The footage is sparse, but gives a decent tease of Lutz as the Son of Zeus, and definitely has a GLADIATOR-esque feel to it. It's not much to go on and I think the popular thing will be to bash it, but I'm holding out hope that it can be a fun return to form for Harlin, who I've missed sorely since his DIE HARD 2, CLIFFHANGER, and THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT days.

Take a peek:

I met Lutz on the set of THE EXPENDABLES 3 and will say that he was really cool, friendly, and humble, so my perspective may be a bit skewed. I'm hoping he pulls out a win with HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS (formerly HERCULES 3D) and although many will see it as a longshot (and they could be right), it would be nice to see this sail to success. However, there's another competing sword-and-sandal pic opening in the same month, so prepare yourself for HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS vs. 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE.

HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS is currently slated for release in March, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Yes, I even like Cutthroat Island. Sue me.

Hmmm, Dwayne Johnson > Kellan Lutz but Brett Rattner < Renny Harlin.

I'm not particularly optimistic for either of the upcoming Hercules films, but between Kellan Lutz and Dwayne Johnson...no contest. Anyway, looking forward to reading about your Expendables 3 set visit Paul!

perfect example of completely biased point just because the actor was involved in a generally (and rightfully so) hated movie franchise.

Do you also criticise Russel Crowe for unrealistically having all his teeth in Gladioator? Or the waxed abs and clear skin in 300? No? Then don't start getting squeamish here.

Looks like one of those movies that cougars and twilight girls will swarm to.

Wtf is a Kellan Lutz and why should I care?

This looks horrible. What is a Kellan Lutz? Nvmd, in the related articles above there is a story on "Twilights Kellen Lutz"

This will be seen by 100 people over the course of the next two decades and then forgotten about.

Out of all the actors in the world...

Why this guy? Why are Millenium Films pushing THIS guy...? I don't get it. Hell, I'd rather see like Liam Hemsworth in Herkules movie over that guy.

And based on that trailer, the movie looks like a solid 4 million opening weekend and DTV in about 70% of the overseas markets. Too bad for Harlin...
