Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Lionsgate has kicked off Comic-Con International a little early with the premiere of a fittingly bloody red-band clip from Conan the Barbarian featuring Leo Howard as the not-to-be-messed-with young Cimmerian and a hirsute Ron Perlman as his father Corin.
Directed by Marcus Nispel, the 3D reboot of the movie franchise stars Jason Momoa as Conan, a warrior on a quest across the continent of Hyboria to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village. The movie, which opens Aug. 19, also features Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui, Steve O’Donnell, Raad Rawi, Nonso Anozie, Bob Sapp and Milton Welsh.
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.
