The teaser trailer for Conan The Barbarian is online and it’s smokin’. No, not in a The Mask kind of way, with the Tex Avery impressions and the “Cuban Pete.” I just mean there’s literally a lot of smoke in the trailer for some reason. Nothing says “from an ancient time” like “here is a shit-load of smoke.”
Also featured: some gray dudes, a hot slave lady, and a nice helping of sound effects from the “Battles, Magic, and Swordplay: Movie Sound Effects Library.” Seriously, though, the trailer did pique my curiosity, and I’m looking forward to seeing more. Hopefully with less smoke and more folks. Topless folks, that is.
Conan The Barbarian is directed by Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and stars Jason “Tempted” Momoa as the non-Arnold barbarian. The cast also includes Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan, and Stephen Lang. The film brutally invades theaters August 19th in 3D. (Collider)
