The Rock always seemed like he was in decent shape, so you'd think he would've been super-jacked for Hercules. But, as you can see in the first trailer, the Rock is less rock and more Jell-O molded into the shape of a string bean. Just kidding, he has all the muscles! And he's using each one to fight mythical beasts. Directed by Brett Ratner, and based on a comic, this Hercules went from zero to hero to badass mercenary. When the film opens on July 25, it appears he's ready to become a hero again. See if you can catch a Les Miz allusion at the end.
