Conan: The Barbarian Teaser Trailer Slays
03.12.11 by BJSprecher
Last week, Lionsgate released an epic sound-and-motion theatrical poster for director Marcus Nispel's new fantasy action movie, Conan: The Barbarian, and followed that up with the release of new still images from the movie in the pages of Empire magazine, including a first look at Stephen Lang from Avatar as the villainous Khalar Zym. Now, the first teaser trailer for the movie, which debuted last night attached to Battle: Los Angeles, is online, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
The trailer doesn't reveal much (anything, really) about the plot of the movie, but it does give us our first taste of a jacked-up Jason Momoa as the new Conan doing his best sword-twirling impression of Arnold Schwarzenegger from the original movie and uttering what I'm sure the studio hopes will be the new fanboy quote of the summer: "I live. I love. I slay. And I am content."
Conan: The Barbarian is based on the classic sword-and-sorcery character created by Robert E. Howard. The script was written by Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly, with re-writes by Sean Hood. Ron Perlman, Bob Sapp, Leo Howard, Rachel Nichols and Rose McGowan also star.
