Our first look at the new Cimmerian warrior in the teaser for Marcus Nispel's Conan the Barbarian

Mar. 11, 2011by: Dave Davis

We've been waiting a long time to see how well beefy new star Jason Momoa fits the role of Robert E. Howard's infamous Hyborian death machine, but unfortunately our first look at the new CONAN THE BARBARIAN in motion is through a shimmering mystical haze.

The 3D reboot/remake/retelling comes from Marcus Nispel (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) and also features Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan and Saïd Taghmaoui. It hacks into your eyeballs on August 19, 2011.

The official line: A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.

Check out the teaser below or in HD at Yahoo.

Extra Tidbit: Think we'll at least get some kind of nods to Arnie's classic in this one?

Not looking too good

This trailer didn't do anything for me. Hopefully the Theatrical Trailer will impress. It seems like alot of movies are going for the gimmicky 3-D nowadays.

Saw the teaser ..nothing here grabbed my interest. The guy playing Conan looks like the guy playing Daenrys husband in Game of Thrones.

WTF!!

Well this crashes any hope i had of this being good. I hate being negative but, it doesn't look good so far. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I wish they would ditch the Crappy 3D.

Sweet

I'm glad to at least get something from this production. I'm super excited to see if they at least get Conan back to his Robert E. Howard roots and not the stupid, over muscled goon he's become since the Schwarzenegger movies. I'll reserve any judgement until we get a full trailer and get a better look at it. But so far Momoa looks great in the part, but alittle Batman in the vocals!

Freakin' awesome!!!!! Momoa rules

I can't wait to see this. I'm one of those fans of Jason Momoa who was really upset when Stargate Atlantis got cancelled. Jason Momoa was super in SGA, and i think he will totally rock as the Barbarian, even better than Schwarzenegger i think.

Well, don't really expect much from a movie with a one dimensional barbarian warrior character, except some action and possibly a fun ride. This teaser doesn't show much, except for a cheesy introduction. Waiting for a full trailer to give judgement.

Exactly what I expected... a bland, dull, unimpressive teaser. Besides, Marcus Nispel is directing this. And casting a Conan who looks like a member of Milli Vanilli doesn't inspire a lot of confidence, either. But we'll see in August.

I think a better trailer would have been Conan standing still and breathing heavily. Then he rushes out from behind cover to take down 5 baddies. No lame voiceover.

Hard to tell from the limited footage, but ill give this a chance. Btw Conan with Arnie is my fave movie of all time and i own almost all literature/ merchandise on Conan - all books, movies, toys etc, so I can tell you that even though Arnie was the best, he wasnt the original REH creation. Milius put his own spin on it, which was good, but the film makers here are saying they want to be more like what REH intended. So until I see the actual film, or at least some more footage, ill keep my

Sad statement that so many ignorant people just wait to bash

Everyone complaining about it not resembling the Arnold films = Trolling Morons. As I said in an earlier post, the character is much more than Arnold Schwarzenegger. Pretty pathetic, but not unexpected.

Hey, when Momoa quotes something from the original books and the Troll echo chamber starts saying stuff like "what stupid dialog, where is is Rape and Lamentation of women" it just underlines the ignorance and lack of information about the real character those people come from. Same with those attacking fans who point that out.

Pretty lame teaser. If the movie is good they are not letting us know that with this ho-hum first look.

There are plenty of cool things to do with the character, and his exploits are far greater than one awesome and one terrible movie from the 80s, so I want to see him get another shot. This guy does not seem very charismatic though.

As for the extra tidbit, the way he was swinging his sword around his head looked like an Arnold nod to me.

I don't understand why they try to rehash these characters, some characters do not transcend over time. Same applies for making another I have no interest in seeing a Superman movie, or Wonder Woman.

Lionsgate are usually good at marketing. But motion poster aside, the promotion so far for this has been shite.

Considering this is their big summer movie you would have thought they would put in more effort...... unless it really is terrible.

Looks like a POS

I'm guessing this is going to be Kull the Conqueror all over again. A high budget SyFy channel original with acting and production designs being about on par. This dude looks like a horrible choice with no charisma or charm and they're clearly trying to hide how fuckass awful the movie is with a literal smoke and mirrors ad campaign.

A big bucket of Meh. I want to like this. I really do. But seriously, potentially shitty director with a potentially shitty script with a mostly unproven actor in the lead. The only thing I'm confident will be good is Perlman's performance. As big a fan as I am of Howards writing and the recent Dark Horse series', I'm just not confident this will be any good.

Dear Lionsgate

The movie has been finished w/ post production for how long? ...4 months...and all Lionsgate can show us is a "teaser" that should've come out somewhere back in November 2010!

C'mon...Give us some real footage (i.e. some R-rated hope) that this is one REMAKE worthy of our $10-($17 for 3D) bucks!

(god bless John Milius & Ahhhnuuld)

Why o why can they not give Conan his black mane of straight hair? Hiding those cute brown curls really would have helped Momoa look more convincing. I dig the mystical look, hope they make this otherworldly, as long as it doesn't look like a cheap music video. And as long as its also down to earth and brutal. Cautiously optimistic so far.

The character is bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger, and this guy in fact physically is bigger than Arnold was, and (most importantly) can read lines properly. Love the first movie, but as a Conan fan the movie fans kind of tick me off with the blatant ignorance sometimes.

looks cool

Momoa looks cool, and actually sounds like the character should sound, no distracting accent. There is a reason Ron Perlman plays his dad, he's voiced Conan twice. I think people are in for a fun, apologetically violent film. As it damn well should be.
