Trailers for CONAN THE BARBARIAN unbearable in any part of the world; UK spot hits
Among this year’s slate of films, one of the weirder films is the upcoming remake, CONAN THE BARBARIAN.
Led by Jason Momoa, the film follows the titular character as he broods and battles his way on a journey to seek revenge against those, particularly one man, who killed his family and tribe. Featuring Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Said Taghmaoui and Ron Perlman, the Marcus Nispel-helmed CONAN has all the makings of something that could prove to be a great genre affair. However, if this new trailer (via HeyUGuys) is to be believed, that’s not what we got.
A UK trailer for the film, It doesn’t show us a huge amount of new footage, but it also doesn’t have the same cheesy style that the US trailer had, and hopefully the film will as well. Personally, this seems like torture. Loud scream after loud scream, the film hits every single uninteresting machismo note right on its juiced up head, making this one that I think I’ll just happily avoid when it hits on August 19.
