Film trailer: 'Conan the Barbarian' in 3D
Wednesday 06 July 2011
The second trailer for
Conan the Barbarian was released in the UK on July 5 featuring a montage of wild action with blood-thirsty appeal.
A reboot of 1982's Conan, this 3D version stars Jason Momoa (
Stargate: Atlantis) in the title role that Arnold Schwarzenegger played originally.
The footage of this fantasy shows the massive scale of mythic monsters, thrashing heavy metal swords and epic battles in this medieval tale.
A young outraged Conan turns into an adult warrior on the rampage intent on avenging the slaughter of his father and villagers - and saving the world of supernatural evil.
The film costars Ron Perlman ( Hellboy), Stephen Lang ( Avatar), Rose McGowan ( Grindhouse) and Rachel Nichols ( Star Trek) and is directed by Marcus Nispel ( The Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot).
Conan the Barbarian will be released on August 19 in 3D in North America, the UK, Sweden, Norway and Poland, followed on August 24 in France, Finland and Switzerland, with more to follow.
