Extended Red Band Preview from Conan the Barbarian
07.20.11 by Ryan
If the amount of red band content is any guide, then director Marcus Nispel's upcoming Conan reboot, Conan: The Barbarian, is truly an R-rated affair.
Over the weekend, a UK red band trailer surfaced, a month after another red band trailer debuted in June. Lionsgate's latest red band offering is an extended clip from the beginning of the movie, focusing on a young Conan (Leo Howard) in his home village where his father (Ron Perlman) offers him and the other boys in the village a physical challenge to see if he is ready to fight amongst the other Cimmerian warriors. During the challenge, Conan is attacked but is more than ready to defend himself. The studio initially released the clip via Twitter, but with the link often failing, ComingSoon has grabbed their own copy.
Based on the character created by author Robert E. Howard, Conan the Barbarian was adapted by screenwriters Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly, with rewrites by Sean Hood. Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) leads the cast in the titular role of the movie, which co-stars Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui, Rachel Nichols, Bob Sapp and Nonso Anozie.
