Conan the Barbarian feels a thirst for blood in the new UK trailer

07.06.2011

I used to think that Jason Momoa as Conan in CONAN THE BARBARIAN would be one of the biggest problems with the film. But watching some of these new trailers, and especially this new UK trailer, I'm becoming convinced that Momoa might have nailed it.

I mean, he's not winning any awards but he's scowling and growling and grunting just the way you'd want your Conan to. I also like the line delivery when explaining to Rachel Nichols his one-word name.

This is not to say that CONAN THE BARBARIAN is a slam dunk just yet as the trailer hints that other aspects of the film could be problematic, but so far I'm liking this more than I thought I would. Check out the new trailer below...

Can't believe I'm STILL looking forward to this. Everything I see still screams FUN. Like something my dad & I would have gone to see back in the good ol' days.

This movie looks so bad. Were is the sprawling visionary epic Robert E. Howard fans have been waiting for?

Looks pretty good. Swords, blood, boobs... and a simple revenge story. What's not to like?

the character long predates Arnold's film. You sound like the nip's in '89 bitching about the only real Batman being Adam West.

SuperRO, Conan was created by Robert E. Howard in 1932, way before Arnold Schwarznegger played him in the movies.

1. best Batman: Michael Keaton
2. The Dark Knight: the best batman movie so far

Yet both are far away from the original source... so just because they might claim it is close to the source material doesn't mean it will be good. This looks badly lame!

His presence in Game of Thrones sold me.

However Mamoa is not what worries me about this movie.

I agree it looks much better at this stage then in the beginning and Momoa might do fine. I'll see it but, something tells me Arnie's Conan is too iconic for Momoa to overcome. Like Lazenby following Connery.

Looks dumber than a box of rocks

but I'm cool with it. Could be a brainless fun time.

If he's not spinning a wheel at the beginning of the movie, I'm walking out.

Well, then skip it now. It's more like the original character, not the Stone/ Milnus made up origin.

I think this is probably the best trailer yet. Merciful lack of hard-rock, a little more gore than the green-bands, but not as gratuitous as the red-band. And it hints at an actual "plot."
