Testosterone oozes from every pixel in this new “Conan” trailer.
Innovative action sequences are accompanied by a pulsating heavy-metal score. But blood-thirst is not the only instinct this trailer quenches. It’s also interspersed with flashes of love-making and filled with phallic symbolism, in the form of snakes and swords. One scene cuts from a cleavage close-up to a monstrous serpentine snake. Freud’s favorite organ is turning up in his grave.
Just incase the trailer hadn’t already reached full subliminal penetration, the final graphic of “Conan’s” sword plunging into the title copy is sure to park the car in the garage.
