Conan gets a red band trailer

Any fears of a watered down Conan The Barbarian hitting theatres in August have been dashed thanks to this red band trailer, which offers gallons of blood and violence and a hint of sex and boobies.

Does this mean the latest version of Robert E. Howard's barbarian will be any good? I seriously have my doubts. But at least my bloodlust will be satiated. Jason Momoa is certainly giving the role his all, but he has a long way to go to best Ah-nold.

We'll know more when Conan hits theatres Aug.19. Until then, watch the blood spill!


  1. Im a HUGE conan fan,all the original howard stuff.And the Barbarian with Arny.I loved the first movie always will.Jason Mamoa's characters ive seen so far have been amazing.Ronon Dex in Atlantis and Khal Drogo in game of thrones.I like the guy,but i dont think hes conan quality.Hes just not big enough.It was Arnold who set the bar for the size of conan he just fit the bill.The other thing was when they were casting for conan Jared Paladecki was in the running as well.SO now they dont need to act ANd have to be a pretty face.Man why didnt they just go with Triple H,He might not be able to act but at least hes the size.Worked once before.All i can hope for is that it isnt a bomb.PLease let it be good.

  2. CGI blood, Jay. Can you handle it? I immediately thought of Ninja Assassin.

  3. I don't know. CGI blood is a turn off for sure. And all the blood in the world can't erase the fact that this looks to "clean." Too Hollywood.
