Conan The Barbarian Trailer
With the people involved in this movie I should have no good reason to be excited. Sure Jason Momoa looks good with his shirt off but I have zero idea if this guy is a leading man and don't get me started on Diredtor Marcus Nispel. I have to be honest he has never made anything I have enjoyed even as a guilty pleasure. I have heard the complaints from the Robert E Howard fanatics to seemingly every decision made from casting to costumes to sets to rumors about the films story. All that being said I can't help myself, this trailer has done it's job. I am full of anticipation for a movie I couldn't have cared less about a month ago.
I am totally digging on the dark fantasy tone shown. I mean sure some of the CG looks a little low budget and cheesy but I like that it doesn't look like they resigned themselves to making a "small" film regardless of budget constraints. It looks like they are really swinging for the fences trying to make a huge epic movie and I respect that. I don't know is this movie will end up any good, but they have definitely won my money.
I want to hear from you guys about this movie. Are you already Conan fans? If you are or aren't how does that shape your reaction to this footage? Let me know in the comments below!
