'Hercules' Wields Magic Sword In New Trailer


The second trailer for the upcoming Hercules: The Legend Beings has been released and, truth be told, it's basically just a shorter, slightly-less violent version of the first trailer -- but there is more of Kellan Lutz shirtless!

The story tells of Hercules' (Lutz) early gladiator days as he fights for the love of his life and battles massive armies of 300-esque villains. Seeing as he's the son of Zeus, his sword is a lighting whip that looks pretty cool when used in slow motion!

While the film looks like it's going to be full of memorable action, it can also seem like a cross between the 2000 flick Gladiator and the 2006 movie 300, sprinkled with a bit of Starz's Spartacus series.
