After a REALLY huge let down of a teaser trailer, we are finally treated to the premiere of a full Conan The Barbarian preview! As you know the Party Crasher, AKA Stephen Lang, stars in the film as the villain Khalar Zym.
You see a few good glimpses of him, and the speaking parts paint him out to be one decadently evil dude. Rose McGowan looks pretty sinister too as Marique, some evil witch lookin’ bitch. I honestly couldn’t even tell it was her with that half balding head, because I had thought she had dropped out of the movie when was in the long development phase.
Conan himself is played by newcomer Jason Momoa, who also plays another Barbarian named Khal Drogo in the HBO fantasy series calledGame of Thrones. You may have heard of it.
And now without further adieu, the trailer in all it’s barbaric party crashing glory:
I’m all in for this one. You give me babes, blades, monsters and the Party Crasher and I’m set to go. I think any Conan fan should be psyched for this movie by watching the trailer.
There’s always the potential even a movie with a good trailer can totally suck, but you never know until you see the final product. I’m just happy the movie is finally done and ready to go after it was in development hell for nearly a decade.
I would also advise anyone familiar with the “Youraagh” Scream to listen closely at the 00:49 and 1:49 marks in the trailer because they definitely used it. What a glorious product of movie sound!
Over at Yahoo Movies, the new Green Lantern trailer dropped and it its packed to the nuts with new footage, A great look at all the characters, and some really great scenes of GL in action. But why am I talking about it, you should just watch it.
If you have by happenstance ever wondered what the movies 300 and Clash of the Titans (2010) would look like mashed together, then it would appear that The Immortals will show us.
Here is a plot description before you dive into the movie trailer:
Years after the Titanomachy, the Titan Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) declares war on humanity. He searches for the Epirus Bow, a legendary weapon created by the war god Ares, which will allow him to free the rest of the Titans from Tartarus and take revenge on the Olympians who brought about their downfall. In accordance with ancient laws, the gods are unable to take a side in the war between Hyperion and humanity. It is left to a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill), chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) and accompanied by the priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and a slave (Stephen Dorff), to protect his homeland and save the gods.
For me this movie will serve two purposes:
The first is to be a popcorn action flick, keep me entertained for a couple hours, then I can leave the theater and forget it entirely while I wait for Clash of the Titans 2 so the process can repeat itself.
The second purpose would be so I can see Henry Cavill in something that will help clarify how good or bad of an actor he is before Man of Steel comes out. I’ve only ever seen Cavill in the Count of Monte Cristo as Albert, the son of Count Montego. He was fine in the role, but I need to see him in something like Immortals before I can accept him as a possible successor to the Last Son of Krypton.
The movie seems to have a decent supporting cast. Mickey Rourke looks fittingly hardcore and evil as Hyperion, wearing what almost looks like a Vega mask in parts of the trailer. Also, up and comer Freida Pinto plays Phaedra, probably one of the only female roles in the movie that will matter. She will be appearing in this movie fresh off of her involvment from the potential heavy hitter Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
I will be seeing this movie when it comes out on November 11th, 2011…. wait! 11-11-11? How could the movie not be awesome!
I swear if they would have just included everything from the teaser trailer, the first trailer and the international trailer I would have warmed up to this movie a lot quicker than I did. To say this movie now looks awesome is an understatement. Watch the trailer and let your words melt away into “oooooohs” and “aaaaaahs”:
Even though my first initial reaction was excitement, in retrospect I should be cautiously optimistic. As many of our brilliant readers know, many trailers are way better than their movies actually turn out to. Actually this happens more than half the time.
Something else to consider is how terrible nearly every Fox released comic movie has been over the years. The most recent Fox crapfest in comic movie history being Wolverine: Origins.
One thing is for sure: even with all of the coolness shown to us in the trailer, we haven’t seen everyone in full action mode. The glimpses we have seen of Havok and Banshee using their powers have been great, but we still haven’t seen Sebastian Shaw dealing out an ass whooping, or Emma Frost do much besides turn into her diamond form and have an awesome rack. All that remains now is to see the finished product, because one more trailer of this and we’ll have seen the entire movie.
Everyone please comment below and let us know what your anticipation level is for X-men: First Class. And if they decide to do a sequel, I want some freakin’ Sentinels!
It’s nearly here. The conclusion of the Harry Potter film franchise: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It’s been a long road, with seven previous movies having already been released since 2001, and the books still coming out during those theater releases.
I started to like the movies more and more as they progressed, except the hiccup that was Goblet of Fire after the amazing Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m probably the only Harry Potter fan in the world who just watched Deathly Hallows Part 1 a week ago. I wanted to try to hold out so I could watch the two parts together just as the second was coming out. Alas, I failed, but I was happy that I did because to me, Deathly Hallows Part 1 was just behind Prisoner of Azkaban for my favorite. It raised the stakes incredibly by having our heroes on the run and looking over their shoulders at every turn. The world of Harry Potter had never been more grim and dangerous.
Besides seeing glimpses of Part 2 in the trailer before Part One, the newest trailer shows so much more. Even a little bit of a spoiler for those who haven’t read the books. Check it out below:
Yes, I peed my pants too if you’re curious. It looks spectacular and I’m sure everything remaining from the book will be included. That means goblins at Gringotts, a dragon, The Battle of Hogwarts and a final confrontation between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.
So get ready on July 15th for the Harry Potter grand finale. It’s going to be magical. (Damn it I didn’t want to use that pun.)
Any thoughts on the trailer, or did everyone’s head explode from awesome overload? If you’re still with us please feel free to comment below!
