WATCH: ‘Hercules’ Trailer Showcases Dwayne Johnson Slaying Monsters

“No matter how fast you run, no matter how far you go, the beast will follow. Man cannot escape his fate, Hercules.”

With these ominous words, the new trailer for Brett Ratner’s “Hercules” sets the scene for the action-packed film as the titular demigod battles a lion and a three-headed water monster while struggling to come to terms with his own identity.

Star Dwayne Johnson flexes his muscles and prepares to save the world from the descendants of Hades in his role as the mythical Greek hero and son of Zeus. The pic, based on graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Aksel Hennie, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal and Reece Ritchie.

Paramount and MGM’s “Hercules” bows July 25.
