'Twilight' Star Kellan Lutz Swings a Lightning-Charged Blade in 'Hercules: The Legend Begins' Trailer

While much of the focus from this past weekend's New York Comic-Con was centered on The Walking Dead, The Vampire Academy and the ever-constant buzz that Marvel was going to announce something about its cinematic universe (it didn't), that other Hercules movie debuted a three-minute-long trailer.

While Dwayne Johnson has been tweeting pictures of his back from the set of his Hercules movie (Hercules: The Thracian Wars), Twilight star Kellan Lutz is starring as the famous demigod in Hercules: The Legend Begins, an origins-esque movie that looks very much like a spin-off from the 300 franchise.

Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2) directs this story about Hercules,  a man who desires only one thing – the love of Hebe, princess of Crete. There's a slight issue though as she's been promised to his brother. Now Hercules must decide to either flee with his true love or fulfill his destiny and become a true hero of his era.

There is no exact release date yet for the film, though Millennium Films has slated the $70 million blockbuster for a March 2014 release. Check out the extended trailer below and let us know if you're looking forward to checking this movie out… or will you just wait for Dwayne Johnson's Hercules movie?
