Official ‘Conan the Barbarian’ Trailer Drops Sans Ahnold

Lionsgate Films has dropped the very first teaser for their ‘Conan the Barbarian’ reboot, which is due to hit theaters on August 19th, 2011 in 3D form.  What man that calls himself a man doesn’t want to go see this flick?  Even though the Govenator isn’t reprising the role of Conan this reboot should still kick a*s.  For one thing it’s a Lionsgate movie, which assures ample amounts of gore will be shown in a spectacular fashion, which it should in a Conan movie.  If this thing comes out an it’s not rated R there’s no chance in hell I’ll be supporting it.  A ‘Conan the Barabarian’ reboot needs to be in your face with hacked off limbs, heads, arms, and whatever other body parts come in contact with the Barbarian’s sword.

This teaser doesn’t really give you much, but it’s something.  Hopefully the next one will give us a little more action, but we’re stuck with the teaser found below for now.  I just hope the actor playing Ahnold’s part pulls it off with the same robotic skill that he did.  He was a perfect actor to play a sword swinging Barbarian, because he was juiced to the gills, and he’s rudimentary acting skills actually helped established Conan as a dull but lethal killing machine.  It’ll be interesting to see how this reboot turns out.  Check it out below.  You’ve been thinking back to your younger days when you wish you had a sword like Conan the f*cking Barbarian…
