Red band trailer for CONAN THE BARBARIAN is, well, pretty red
Well, it looks like Lionsgate saved up all their blood-marked marketing dollars for Marcus Nispel's CONAN THE BARBARIAN for this new red band trailer. After a laughably boring teaser trailer that didn't tell us much other than that Jason Momoa's Conan likes to "live, love, and slay," we're finally getting a good look at what the film will actually be like. Turns out, bloody! No, seriously, there's a lot of blood here - the good movie kind, that spills and arcs and looks like congealed Pinot Noir.
Starring Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard, Steve O'Donnell, Raad Rawi Fassir, Nonso Anozie, Bob Sapp, and Milton Welsh, the 3D (of course) release reintroduces the epic battles of the titular Barbarian (fine, splitting hairs, the Cimmerian). Conan's personal blood-soaked quest becomes a supernatural war when he must take on men, monsters, and more sword fights than you can shake, well, a sword at.
Check out the bloody new red band trailer after the break. How many gallons of the fake stuff do you think were spilled in its creation?
CONAN THE BARBARIAN will smash into theaters on August 19.
