After his father is murdered and village destroyed, Conan ventures into an unforgiving world where he survives as a thief, pirate, and warrior. On his path of wanton adventure and women, Conan chances upon the warlord responsible for his tribe’s destruction. As he tracks Khalar Zym, Conan battles monsters, Zym’s henchmen, and Marique, a powerful witch.

Some characters have no known cast yet but were revealed in released casting information.
The trailer looks great but somehow I still wish they would follow the original Robert E Howards story line of Conan. So far it has been by far the better versions of the character that I have seen and read. I will say this . The actor they got playing Conan (Jason Momoa) has an eerie simulation to the cover art of Frank Frazetta ( which ended up being the deffacto standard of the character ) used in the original 12 books of the Lancer/Ace paperback editions ( for more on the original book series click here for the wiki page of the origin history of the Conan books ). It’s one of those things that I feel that they already have great story that can come across really well with the right actor and director in place . When will they learn from the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Change very little and you can still have a great movie as those two franchises have shown.
