Conan the Barbarian bathes in blood in violent new-red band trailer

Conan the Barbarian is thirsty—can he have your blood? He doesn't want to drink it; he just wants to spill it! This seems to be a known fact that's splashed all across the movie's red-band trailer.

The trailer starts off quiet but ends with a bloody bang. It opens with a dialogue scene between Conan (Jason Momoa) and Tamara (Rachel Nichols) where we learn they were destined to cross paths. And while they're setting up the film's romantic element, Ron Perlman steps in to announce, "When a Cimmerian feels thirst, it is the thirst for blood."

From that moment on, all bets are off, and we see Conan slice and dice every man and creature that gets in his way. There are also a few hot and heavy scenes between him and Tamara. She may be a little more conservative than him, but you know the old saying—"opposites attract."

The trailer also has a shot of Rose McGowan as the evil Marique, someone who has a thing for clawing people in the face. How catty! Judging from the last few seconds of the video, she won't be the only woman kicking ass and taking names. We can't wait to see her and Tamara duke it out.

Conan the Barbarian is directed by Marcus Nispel and opens in theaters on Aug. 19.
