WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In Ancient Greece, a queen gives birth to the son of Greek god Zeus. The boy, Hercules (Lutz), grows up with no knowledge of his importance but desires a princess (Weiss) who is already betrothed to his brother. When he realises his greater role, Hercules must decide if he shall fulfil his destiny or be with the woman he loves…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The first of two major films this year about the Greek legend, this one tells Hercules’ unique origins and how he rose to legendary status.
