New red band clip features young Conan the mini-barbarian

Jul. 20, 2011by: Paul Tassi

I think the only question for CONAN THE BARBARIAN now is whether it's going to be "good ridiculous" or "bad ridiculous" as I think it NOT being ridiculous is pretty out of the question. Don't believe me? Check out this new red band clip from early in the film.

Here a young Conan (looking a bit like Arya from Game of Thrones) has the challenge of holding an egg in his mouth while battling other younglings in a race around the mountains to prove their worth as warriors.

But their little exercise is interrupted by some savage hill people, and what does mini-Conan do? After sending the other ten boys away for help, kills ALL OF THEM and walks back into camp with a few handfuls of severed heads. Subtlety, thy name is not Conan.

Extra Tidbit: Ron Perlman feels a bit out of place here.

By Crom!

I think Rob Bricken from Topless Robot said it best,"I think Conan hasn't just passed Barbarian 101, but graduated with a major in Crushing Your Enemies and a minor in Driving Them Before You. I fully expect him to do a bit of post-grad work in Making Women Lament, too."

I'm unapologetically in line day one for this. Bring it.

Riiiiiiiiight.


An untrained prepubescent adolescent deftly beheads a half dozen trained grown adult assailants.

Yeah, that could happen.

This movie should fit nicely in the annals of film right in between Dungeons & Dragons, and Eragon.

Simmer down.

I generally hit return to separate paragraphs. Not sure why, but when I add one space in the editor, when I hit post it posts as three spaces. Apparently not in the reply section though.

But in the end if you have that big of a problem with the extra spaces, then that's exactly what it is:

Your problem.

If Davy Crocket could kill a bear when he was only three then Conan can beat the Crom loving sh*t out of a few marauders.

This looks...

AWESOME. I must admit that I thought a remake of this was a bad idea, but seeing the trailer and clips, its actaully looking bad ass.

Based on that clip,

I'm going with good ridiculous. And yes, Ron Perlman is cool too.

I've intensely disliked everything about this film so far. But that was actually pretty decent. Too bad the kid will grow up to be Jason Momoa, who will snarl his way through the other hour-and-a-half of the movie.
As for the extra tidbit: I think Ron Perlman is perfect for these types of roles. He's the least poorly cast actor on the roster for this film.

That's RACIST!

Just kidding- looks like good cheese- as long as it's not as poorly paced as Clash of the Titans
