Conan Is One Busy Barbarian

There’s a great deal of action in this new Conan the Barbarian TV spot, and that’s the good news. The bad news is that the film is still not yet rated, which means the studio may still be thinking about toning it down to a PG-13 to expand its potential audience. Please note this is purely subjecture, as everyone involved with the movie has always claimed it would be an R, and there have been previous R-rated trailers for the movie, chock full of tits and violence, indicating an R-rated movie was indeed shot — but it would hardly be the first time a studio changed their minds and decided to neuter a movie for theatrical release, and save all the good stuff for DVD. I hope that doesn’t end up being the case, not just because it’s what a Conan movie deserves, but because Jason Momoa could use a win. He had a bit of a rough time on Game of Thrones last night, after all. (Via First Showing)
