Perennial Towleroad lust object Kellan Lutz has recently emerged in another trailer for his upcoming film The Legend of Hercules (out in theaters January 10th).
Unlike the trailer, none of the ancient myths concerning Hercules depict him as a gladiator. However, they do mention that he was forced to wear women's clothing and serve as a queen's slave for a year, and that he also once lost a drinking contest against Dionysus the god of wine — why couldn't they have made a movie about those adventures?
You may also recall that Lutz's film is being developed alongside another Hercules film starring ex-wrestler/actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Apparently the two films will differ in terms of stud-factor (Lutz couldn't get as muscular as Johnson) and intended audience (Johnson's film seems more geared towards Marvel fanboys, while Lutz's will reportedly cater to the more angsty Twilight set).
Lutz's new trailer mostly re-cuts footage from the one we showed you this October. But it's always nice to see Lutz working the 300/Spartacus/Gladiator-aesthetic alongside armies of shirtless, bearded men.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Kellan Lutz will both play Hercules

In lieu of a review -- this weekend is all about the return of the now twenty-year-old Jurassic Park (in 3D) anyway -- how about some hyper-masculine movie news?
Have you heard that there are not one but two HERCULES movies in the works? If it's not quite true that Hollywood is always out of ideas, it is definitely true that Hollywood only likes a few of them at a tine. Was it the success of brawny god/superhero Thor (2010) that convinced them? Was it TV's fleshy Spartacus? Whatever it was, Hollywood would like you to pay to see two sandle-clad Pec-tacular heroes next year. Unfortunately not in the same film so The Rock and The Lutz won't be wrestling around in the sand together in tiny skirts but each headlining their own Hercules pictures.
MORE, plus some movie news AFTER THE JUMP...
