First official theatrical trailer for Marcus Nispel’s Conan the Barbarian reboot ya’ll. The film, which stars Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Rose McGowan, Stephen Lang, Bob Sapp, and Ron Perlman, is set to open wide August 19.
Momoa, who can be seen right now in HBO’s Game of Thrones makes for an imposing Conan. It’s not like he’s stepping into a role originated by Daniel Day-Lewis, so really he just has to be big, mean, fight well, basically just show up. Rose McGowan is nearly unrecognizable as an evil witch.
Might make for a good end of summer flick. And by good, I mean positively bad, but fun in the same way that The Scorpian King or Clash of the Titans was fun. In spots. Who am I kidding? This thing can’t possibly be good, can it?
