Lionsgate has released the first clip from their upcoming reboot of “Conan The Barbarian”, and it just so happens to be a nearly 3-minute red band clip featuring a young Conan (Leo Howard) slaughtering his way through a bunch of marauders. Hey, they attacked HIM, not the other way around. Which makes you wonder — if Kid Conan can do all this, what can Adult Conan do? I’d sure like to find out when this film opens August 19, 2011.
The most legendary Barbarian of all time is back this Summer. Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination- in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds- Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film. 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.
Starring Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Jason Momoa, Leo Howard, Saïd Taghmaoui, Bob Sapp, Nonso Anozie, Marco Khan, Raw Leiba, and directed by Marcus Nispel.
