A new, UK trailer for director Marcus Nispels reboot of Conan the Barbarian has arrived, courtesy of the film’s Facebook page.
Fuck this movie! I’m sorry, maybe I just idealize the original Arnold Schwarzenegger version so much that I’m decidedly against favoring this reboot. I know it’s trying to stay true to the original Robert E. Howard novels, but it looks bloody awful. It’s like Conan got thrown in a blender with The Mummy and Van Helsing. Yea, we all have a hard on for horse guy from ‘Game of Thrones’ (Jason Momoa), but looking past that, does this trailer really excite you?
Conan is a young Cimmerian man cast adrift in the world by the brutal murder of his father and the destruction of his village. Driven by the need to avenge himself upon the evil Khalar Zym, Conan learns to steal, seduce, and fight his way to his goals. He soon discovers, however, that there are greater things at stake than his own personal quest: an unearthly malevolence stalks the world, and it may be up to Conan himself to save Hyboria from ruin.
