Marcus Nispel’s “Conan the Barbarian” has come along way from the initial casting to poster, trailer and clip. Here’s a new red band clip showing a young Conan learning how to be a barbarian or something. It’s brutal, savagery and down right awesome. To me, the film has gone from a joke to a serious contender and franchise reboot. Of course, I may be getting ahead of myself, but I know what I like and what I like now is Conan. If you haven’t seen the trailer, be sure to watch it here.

“Conan the Barbarian” hits theaters August 19th, 2011.
