I also watched the Red Band trailer and it is extremely gory. Like, whoa blood. I mean, they're barbarians after all, so I guess that's to be expected, but dang. It looks like it'll be a decent movie. Ron Perlman plays Conan's father, so that's pretty cool. Rose McGowan is in it. I recently learned that there were posters of her released as the title character in a Red Sonja remake, but that seems to have all but disappeared. I don't think there is anything particularly remarkable about the above trailer, however. I'm only not posting the Red Band trailer because it is 18+. It's widely available on the interwebs, however. We'll know in August just how the movie turned out, I reckon.
Conan the Barbarian opens in 3D (and hopefully 2D, though I honestly haven't seen anything stating that it actually will) on August 19.
