Paramount and MGM said that the Dwayne Johnson-starrer Hercules, originally scheduled for wide release on August 8, 2014, will now open July 25, 2014. Brett Ratner is directing the pic, which is being eyed as a franchise. The movie’s original date fell a week after the one staked out by Disney/Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. Now Hercules has a date to itself for the time being, and comes a week after Warner Bros’ The Hobbit: There And Back Again, the final installment of that trilogy; and Fox’s sequel X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
