We’ve seen a so-so theatrical trailer and a so-so bloodier red-band trailer; today Lionsgate delivers a new UK trailer for Conan the Barbarian. This one provides more of the backstory as to how Conan became the barbarian that he is — his village is destroyed and his family is murdered at the hands of Khalar Zym’s army — and further fleshes out the plot of the movie — Conan’s want for revenge against Khalar Zym for destroying his village and murdering his family. A few more previously unseen action and CGI sequences are also offered up. Check it out.
By Crom I hope the finished product does the Cimmerian justice.
Conan the Barbarian stars Jason Momoa, Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang and Saïd Taghmaoui.
Conan the Barbarian slashes into US theaters August 19, 2011 and UK theaters August 24, 2011.
