Conan The Barbarian slices up a new red band trailer

A new red band trailer for Conan The Barbarian has landed online.

The Cimmerian warrior spills a fair amount of the red stuff in the latest promo, which, let's be honest, is what you want to see from the Robert E Howard-created character.

No new story beats are revealed besides a couple of moments between Conan and Tamara (Rachel Nichols), and there's little characterisation on show, save for the assertion that, yes, Mr Barbarian does enjoy slicing up his enemies.

That said, the swordswinging is delivered with considerable panache, and Jason Momoa certainly has Conan's hulking physical presence down to a T.

Check out the red band trailer for yourself right here:

Conan The Barbarian opens 26 August 2011.
