I’ll be the first to admit I hold no special spot for Schwarzenegger’s Conan even though it is a benchmark for the actor.
Still, it’s a part of my childhood and I can’t overlook the fact that along with a handful of other 80’s movies Conan is one of those characters that linked to the star.
Remake mania is still running pretty strong and while this trailer looks fairly interesting I couldn’t help but notice that it’s felt kind of generic.
If I didn’t know it was Conan or had somebody say the name in the trailer, I’d probably have no idea what movie this was other than another action heavy fantasy film.
Since Marcus Nispel is directing this, he seems to have peaked with the Chainsaw remake, I can’t say I’m too optimistic…..
