Swords, Sorcery, and Shirtlessness: It’s the Conan the Barbarian Trailer

The summer of beefcake continues relentlessly, pausing neither to put on a shirt nor to wipe down the machines at the gym after finishing. The latest bare-chested brawler: Conan the Barbarian, starring Jason Momoa — already the very picture of a medieval warrior on HBO's Game of Thrones — as the hero Arnold Schwarzenegger made famous. The trailer is pretty typical sword-fighting and spell-casting, but it's worth sticking with it to the end, when Rose McGowan appears as a villainess with blood-red lipstick and a shaved-back hairline; she's a slightly less handsy version of Mortal Kombat's Sheeva, and she's definitely earned your quarters.
