Kid Conan Slaughters his Way Through a Red Band Clip

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.

    I’ve been really skeptical of this movie since the beginning. Sure, I was always going to watch it, but it looked cheesy and more like it was going to be something to mock with a group of friends. But god damn, this clip makes it look awesome. That was brutal, exactly like a Conan movie should look. And Ron Perlman’s sweet ass beard. All right, Conan, you just hooked me.

      By Crom welcome aboard Brent! I’ve had faith in this from Mamoa’s casting and this looks like a lot of fun! Brutal, and unfliching dark fantasy in the Robert E. Howard vision.

        I’ve faith in this since the beginning too Dedpool. Momoa pretty much played Conan in Space on STARGATE: ATLANTIS, and Little Leo kicked ass as Young Snake Eyes in G.I. JOE (me senses a pattern here). August cannot come soon enough…..

          Holy crap! That IS lil Snake eyes! Whoa! Kid got some freaking talent. Yeah I so can’t wait for this. I said the same thing when he was cast, the whole Conan in Space analogy. And then played Conan the horse lord in Game of Thrones. This movie looks like freaking sweet!
          Sent on the go.

    Bloody awesome! Maybe the flic won´t be as mediocre as the trailer with the quick cuts and the generic nu-rock music made me believe?

    Well anyone who followed Conan graphics and news and from what they said of this movie from the beginning. Some of you just looked at the trailers and the new age rock that was put on in the trailer an forgot that this was a close as a depiction of what Conan was supposed to be seen on screen. And the rest of the non-believers were still hooked on the 1982 Conan, which I still Love to this day. But this is the New Version Conan that must be shown to this new generation and will in turn hopefully make them be new fans of Robert E. Howards greatest fantasy legendary warrior of all time….CROM..

    This clip goes to show that Conan is going to be gruesome and amazing! I cannot wait to see it this weekend.

    Looks like the violence and blood is there, hopefully they don’t leave out the tits and ass.

    Conan needs to have nekid slaves in chains writhing at his feet while he’s tearing into a piece of meat.
