So, apparently, somebody out there was very smart and realized that, as far as titles go, Hercules: The Thracian Wars was incredibly unwieldy. As a result, the film’s title has been shortened to simply Hercules, which is what everyone was going to call it anyway.
(Except for maybe the people of Thrace…)
Having watched this trailer, I really can’t say that I am in any way excited about the prospect of watching Hercules. I like Dwayne Johnson and this would seem to be a perfect role for him but the trailer just feels so generic that it could just as easily been a trailer for The Legend of Hercules.
Or, to put it another way, if I hadn’t already known that this film was directed by Brett Ratner, I would have guessed on the basis of the trailer.
Personally, I’d like to see a movie about Pandora and the box.
