Dwayne Johnson as both man and myth, leading a band of mercenaries to help end
a bloody civil war in the land of Thrace and return the rightful king to his
throne. A tormented soul from birth, Hercules has the strength of a God but
feels the suffering of a human. Unimaginable villains will test the mythical
power of Hercules in director Brett Ratner's gritty take on one of the most
epic action heroes of the ages. The film also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell,
Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, Aksel Hennie, Ingrid Berdal, Reece Ritchie,

and Evan Spiliotopoulos. Directed by Brett Ratner.

and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital
