THE year 2014 is going to be very Greek with lots of exposed male flesh ... at the movies, anyway.
Movegoers will see 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE and two Hercules flicks, one starring Dwayne Johnson and the other with a very shirtless Kellan Lutz flexing his pecs in 3-D.
Here's the story line for THE LEGEND OF HERCULES starring Kellan Lutz, quoting from the studio press release:
In Ancient Greece 1200 BC, a queen succumbs to the lust of Zeus to bear a son promised to overthrow the tyrannical rule of the king and restore peace to a land in hardship. But this prince, Hercules, knows nothing of his real identity or his destiny.
He desires only one thing: the love of Hebe, Princess of Crete, who has been promised to his own brother. When Hercules learns of his greater purpose, he must choose: to flee with his true love or to fulfill his destiny and become the true hero of his time.
The story behind one of the greatest myths is revealed in this action-packed epic – a tale of love, sacrifice and the strength of the human spirit.
Renny Harlin directed the movie, which will be released across North America in January. Here is the latest trailer:
