Fancy a huge chunk of cheese with whatever you plan to eat next?

If so, then settle down and take in the first teaser trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s forthcoming beefcake epic Hercules.

Just over a minute of oiled muscles, corny dialogue and some slightly dubious CGI, this looks as though it could prove decent fun when it hits cinemas on July 25, although here at Movie Ramblings we also reckon the film will be a real test of Johnson’s pulling power at the box office.

Hercules has Brett Ratner holding the directrorial reins, with the cast filled out by the likes of Rufus Sewell, John Hurt and Joseph Fiennes.
