Yahoo! Movies has premiered the first trailer director Marcus Nispel’s 3D reboot Conan the Barbarian, based on the legendary fantasy character created by Robert E. Howard. It’s definitely a tease, showing as a series of fleeting, smoky images without revealing anything substantial. Come to think of it, the synopsis if pretty vague, too:
A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.
Ah, well. Lionsgate has another five months to parcel out plot details. Conan the Barbarian stars Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard, Steve O’Donnell, Raad Rawi, Nonso Anozie, Bob Sapp and Milton Welsh. It opens on Aug. 19.
