'Conan the Barbarian' red-band trailer: A decapitatin' good time

Posted on

Fellow action movie fans, were you a little worried that the earlier Conan the Barbarian trailers didn’t have nearly enough images of heads being chopped off? Then you’ll love the new R-rated trailer, which essentially reduces the plot of the film to a snappy quote — “When a barbarian feels thirst, it is a thirst for blood” — and then becomes a kaleidoscopic bloodbath starring Game of Thrones‘ Jason Momoa as the titular barbarian. Heads roll hither and thither, Rose McGowan claws at a lady’s face, soldiers are variously impaled and expaled, and it all ends with a memorable vision of a man being chopped in half thanks to a helpful combinations of chains and a giant snake. Rube Goldberg would be proud! Check out the trailer:
