A Bloody First Look At Conan The Barbarian
No, that’s not Troy Polamalu. That’s Jason Momoa, star of the upcoming 3D film, Conan The Barbarian as if Arnold Schwarzenegger needed another reason to be forgotten. (He’s Lisa’a Bonet’s baby daddy, too.)
Like many of the new films this summer, Conan is a reboot, meaning the storyline and characters will not resemble those of the Schwarzenegger movie (who would’ve replaced Grace Jones, anyway?). The film also stars Rose McGowan as Marique, a powerful witch. Looks like her Charmed days should pay off well for the role.
The action sequences for the film should be very well-executed as Momoa has been working with stunt performer David Leitch (The Bourne Ultimatum) and Chad Stahelski, the martial arts coordinator for The Matrix Reloaded. With resumes like these contributing to work on the film, it’s gotta be worth checking out. To put things into perspective, the trailer you’re about to see is of a young Conan and takes place during the first 15 minutes of the film.
Conan The Barbarian hits theaters August 19th.
