New Images From "Hercules 3D"

Sneak Peek images from director Renny Harlin's upcoming "Hercules 3D" feature, starring actor Kellan Lutz ("The Twilight Saga") that will be in direct competition next year with director Brett Ratner's "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" comic book adaption, starring Dwayne Johnson.

"The action is really big and fun," said Harlin about his 'Hercules' take, "but at the heart of it all is a great love story. This is an origin story, that introduces him to people who might not know who 'Hercules' is..."

"This is the story of a young man who comes to terms with who he is and how he has much more responsibility. His father is 'Zeus' and his mother was mortal, and he has a much bigger mission in his life. 

"It’s about fulfilling your destiny and responsibilities. It's an epic adventure story and he wants to be reunited with this girl who was ripped away from him...It’s just a big scale story and I’m excited to show the world next spring..."

"I have a battle scene that lasts six minutes that is all one shot, covering a sea battle and ground battle and hand to hand combat and sword fighting, spears and bows and arrows and flying boulders, all done in one shot that never cuts. I’ll give you that spoiler. That’s one of the biggest shots I’ve ever created..."
