The earlier teaser trailer for August's Conan the Barbarian flick offered little in the way of visuals and a voice over approximation of the Ultimate Warrior. Now we've got an official trailer with oodles of hacking and slashing. There's also a nice ratio of swords to sorcery as well as swords to sandals. The grime glistens and the gristle…well, that glistens too. I'm seeing flaming pitch, a giant tentacled creature, and dirt devils. And Rose McGowan is sans eyebrows. I think we're in good shape.
This looks like a rollicking Saturday matinee, leaning closer to the barbaric yawp than the barbaric yawn side of the Visigoth equation. But don't take my word for it.
