Conan the Barbarian: Thirst for Blood Trailer

Posted in Films with tags , , , , on August 4, 2011 by boccobsblog

On the Conan Film website they have posted a new trailer entitled, “Thirst for Blood”.  It is unclear if it is a teaser or a trailer (a teaser being a trailer that shows footage not actually in the film). In my humble opinion, this does not bode well for the film. It shows Conan as a ruthless, psychopathic 7-year-old killing machine.

My gripe with this scene is that the tragedy of the first film was that Conan was a peaceful, doe-eyed child that was taken away and forged into a killer.

They are going for the easy win. “Oh, he’s Conan, he kills stuff.” Conan himself reflects in the first film that he wasted his entire life in the pursuit of vengeance and death.

Let me know what you think. Watch the Trailer

(I’m trying to stay hopeful, but it’s waning)
