"Hercules: The Legend Continues" Gets Head Start on Box Office Competitor

The legend of Hercules has been told on screen for decades, but this year, two competing big screen projects about the hero will go up against each other in theaters.

Recently, one of the adaptations has pulled ahead as Summit picked up “Hercules: The Legend Begins” for a February release.

Directed by Renny Harlin, the move stars Kellan Lutz as the title character while “Hercules” has Dwayne Johnson in the beefy role.

Unfortunately, fans will have to wait until July 25th to see what The Rock is cookin,” while the “Twilight” star”s turn comes six months before on February 7th.
