The teaser trailer for Conan the Barbarian didn’t offer much as it was mostly smoke, but now Lionsgate have released the first full trailer and it’s 100% footage. It doesn’t looks that bad, but it doesn’t look amazing either. There are some interesting shots (Conan hits a horse in the face with a huge chain) and plenty of sword fights, which was expected.
You can watch the trailer below:
The movie, directed by Marcus Nispel (Pathfinder), will be released August 19th and follows Conan (Jason Momoa) as he ventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village. Momoa is joined by Ron Perlman who plays Conan’s father, Stephen Lang (Avatar) who will be villain Khalar Singh, and Rose McGowan who plays a “half-human/half-witch”.
