New Hercules Trailer Punches A Lion In Slow-Motion

The first Hercules trailer for Dwayne Johnson's epic action flick looked alright, but the second trailer appears to be (slightly) more self-aware. Crackin' jokes, fighting slo-mo lions and hydras and mugging for the camera — this is the demigod we want.

The new trailer is all joke, joke, fancy lion hat. Which gives us hope, as we were fairly concerned that this movie might be taking itself too seriously. Clearly it's not, and that's a good thing. But it does make you feel kind of bad for Kellan Lutz.

Johnson's Hercules hits theaters in the height of hot summer, July 25th, 2014.
