(Relaxnews) – Kellan Lutz, revealed to the public through the “Twilight” film series, stars in the role of the Greco-Roman demigod in the forthcoming feature.

Summit Entertainment has released the first theatrical trailer for “Hercules: The Legend Begins” ahead of its arrival in US theaters January 10. In just over two minutes, the trailer goes beyond the battle scenes featured in the previously released teaser to show what Hercules is fighting for: his beloved Hebe, played by Gaia Weiss.

Like “300″ and “Clash of the Titans,” this Hercules origin story exploits the possibilities of digital imaging to bring the Greco-Roman gods to the screen. The feature was directed by Renny Harlin, the Finnish filmmaker behind “Die Hard 2″ and “The Long Kiss Goodnight.”

“Hercules: The Legend Begins” will not be the only Hercules-themed action film coming to theaters in 2014. In July, Brett Ratner will present “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” in which Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will play a darker and more mature version of the legendary character.
