If you don't know the name Jason Momoa, you probably soon will. THR reports that movie theater industry folk are set to give the actor (a somewhat premature) CinemaCon Rising Star Award on March 31. Clearly, they think this guy has got the goods and they'll be hoping his mane of hair and big muscles will be a draw when "Conan The Barbarian" opens later this year.

If you don't know the name Jason Momoa, you probably soon will. THR reports that movie theater industry folk are set to give the actor (a somewhat premature) CinemaCon Rising Star Award on March 31. Clearly, they think this guy has got the goods and they'll be hoping his mane of hair and big muscles will be a draw when "Conan The Barbarian" opens later this year.

A teaser trailer has arrived for the film and it's pretty funny in how straight-faced it is. In the embers of a CGI fire we see scenes from the movie, while a Trailer Guy Voice deeply intones some stuff we've already forgotten. Than Jason Momoa makes a funny little speech. The end. Yeah, this definitely won't be high art, but we're at least hoping it'll be a guilty pleasure good time. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

"Conan The Barbarian" opens on August 19th. You can check out the trailer below as well as the funky motion poster (THE SKULLS!) via IGN.You can also check out more images over at Film School Rejects.
